Traditional mortgage comparison sites immediately attempt to monetize you and often treat you as a lead to sell. These sites simply collect your information to sell to mortgage brokers and agents, which results in you being bombarded by spam calls and aggressive salespeople.
approvU is entirely different – we aren’t a lead generator. Behind approvU is a team of licensed mortgage professionals in all the provinces and regions where we operate.

You make it happen.” By itself, approvU is sophisticated enough to guide you through the mortgage process without an agent or broker holding your hands.

No, approvU is not a mortgage lender.
approvU is simply a better way to get the most suited mortgage for you by enabling you to shop across multiple lenders, so you don’t miss out on the lowest mortgage rate.

Yes, approvU is licensed to distribute mortgages in Ontario. We are working on getting licensed in other provinces and regions. Click here to be the first to know when we get licensed in your province.
approvU is paid a commission by the mortgage lender for helping you get the right mortgage.
Our tool is free for all. However, we charge a small service fee for non-traditional borrowers (specifically those applying for bad credit mortgages or self-employed mortgages), which is only due after the mortgage is funded and closed. This small fee helps us cover the cost of the extra resources needed for bad credit and self-employed mortgages. The fee we charge is way lower than what you would spend if you chose to go with a broker or agent.
The approvU algorithms solely rely on the information to generate your list of qualified mortgages. Our technology is unbiased and will even advise against selecting an expensive product.
We will never sell or share your data, and we don’t cold call or spam our customers.

Yes. As real people with real data, we understand the importance of keeping your personal information private. That’s why we pledge never to sell your data to spammers.

approvU allows you to customize your mortgage the way you want. It also empowers you to make the mortgage decision independently while guiding you through the process.
Based on the information you provide, if you approvU determines that you qualify, it will populate your mortgages, arranged from the lowest and cheapest rates.

The process of signing up with approvU
We mean it when we say approvU provides you with the widest selections of mortgages in Canada. Top credit score to low as 500, challenging income situations to fully self-employed, approvU has a mortgage for. Even real estate investors with over eight other properties, approvU has a mortgage for you.
However, there are unique circumstances when we may not be able to get you the right mortgage. In those situations, approvU will let you know instantly. It may even recommend where you can get qualified for a mortgage that best fits your unique situation.
From experience, approvU may not be able to help if your credit score is below 500 or you are property outside the provinces we are licensed to operate in.
approvU does check your credit only if you are qualified and ready to move ahead with your mortgage.
However, if we have to, we’ll only check your credit report once, regardless of whether you are applying to three different lenders. That shouldn’t affect your score, compared to getting each of these lenders to pull your report if you have to go to them directly.
Because we know the impact credit inquiries have on your credit score, we prefer to do it only when you are ready to proceed with the mortgage.
However, we advise that you check your credit score from some of the free credit monitoring providers like Borrowell, Credit Karma, or even with your mobile banking app before going through the qualification phase.
You won’t have to do this extra step for a long time because we are working on integrating credit reporting service into your approvU experience.
But if your actual credit score is lower or outside the range, you provided, your designated mortgage professional will advise you of that and the next step to ensure that you are getting the right mortgage.
If you get a mortgage through approvU, your mortgage contract will be between you and your mortgage lender. approvU simply helps facilitate that process, making it cheap, convenient, easy, and comfortable for you and your lender while ensuring you are not signed up for the wrong mortgage.
approvU does collect your void cheque as part of the documents your lender requires to complete the mortgage processing but does not use it to access your account.
Each province has unique, specific licensing procedures and requirements for trading mortgages. Clearing the regulatory hurdles takes longer in some places than in others. If we’re not in your province yet, take heart, we are actively working on expanding to all provinces and territories in Canada.
The approvU platform is open for those looking to get a mortgage to buy their principal residence, vacation property, second home, or rental property. To use approvU, borrowers must meet specific credit, income, location, and asset requirements.
The approvU platform is not open for those looking to get a second or third position, HELOC, or private mortgage.
