MortEq Lending Corp: Q1 2017 Results

  • January 3, 2017

MortEq Lending Corp (MLC) generated a quarterly return of 7.61% (annualized) for Q1 -2017.

Here is a summary of our performance since inception:

Demand for non-institutional mortgages remains strong in Metro Vancouver & the Fraser Valley; we anticipate this trend to continue through 2017. Federal, Provincial, and Municipal rule changes have made it more difficult to obtain institutional financing and this has created some volatility in the real estate market.  These changes have created additional opportunities for MLC to finance lower risk first mortgages in our target markets of Metro Vancouver & the Fraser Valley.

Please contact us if you want to discuss any real estate or investment related questions.
