How we can make your first mortgage work for you.

Not all mortgage pre-approvals are created equal

At ATB we do a little extra work up front so you can be extra confident in the amount that we pre-approve you for when you’re house hunting.

Repay your way

Increase regular payments by up to 20%1per year, or prepay up to 20%1of your original mortgage amount per year. With Loan Protection, you may be able to have payments covered in the event of death or disability.

​Find the mortgage that's right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, not. Once you have a down payment of at least 5%, you may qualify for an Insured Mortgage, but 5% is the minimum we can accept.

That’s two FAQs but we’ll address them both here in the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval.
