Monitor My Mortgage (M3), a Canadian mobile and web app, is aiming to break the veil of secrecy and ambiguity around mortgage for the borrowers. Banks and lenders try to get the best rates for themselves, getting the most that they can out of borrowers. This is where M3 comes to the rescue. Users can track their mortgages, receive notifications about rate changes, find the best rates and lenders at the time of refinancing or renewal, calculate penalties, track Bank of Canada interest rates, and basically take control of their mortgages from start to finish.
Banks and many mortgage lenders do not look out for the best interests of their borrowers, but try to make as much money off of their lack of knowledge as possible. Not everyone is aware of mortgage management, and a lot of financial institutions take advantage of the fact.
This leads to the following problems for borrowers –
Lack of knowledge about market rates, or changing rates.
Difficulty understanding penalties and their calculation.
Feeling pressured into refinancing or renewing the mortgage with the same bank. Banks do not call their customers until the very last minute, making it difficult to look around in the market for better options.
Not having sufficient knowledge about developments in the mortgage market that can affect the borrower’s situation.
Monitor My Mortgage puts the control back in the hands of borrowers, equipping them with all the necessary tools and information to manage their mortgage efficiently, without getting swayed or influenced by their lenders. It provides all the key information that can affect the user’s mortgage and specific situation in detail.
A systematic method to get to solutions
Monitor My Mortgage was developed to provide mortgage buyers with complete information about the mortgage landscape well before their renewal or refinancing time.
