    Frequently Asked Questions

    Welcome to our Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQ) section, where we answer the most popular questions designed and crafted by our in-house mortgage experts to help you make informed mortgage financing decisions.


    What is nesto, and what can nesto provide me?

    How can nesto offer better rates?

    Did you know that mortgage rates are sold at a premium? Simply put, all brokers and bank mortgage specialists have wiggle room regarding the mortgage rates they offer you.

    For the same mortgage product from any institution, there are usually 3 tiers for rates:

    • A floor rate: the absolute minimum rate the bank can offer a given client.
    • A middle rate: the rate you will likely be offered first – not great, but not too bad either. Brokers and mortgage specialists usually offer this first and hope you’ll accept it without much thought. 
    • A high rate: this is posted on most big banks’ websites. They may offer you this rate if they see you as a risky borrower, but their posted rate will always be used to calculate your penalty if you break your mortgage.

    In order to offer you the floor rate, a broker or mortgage specialist would have to give away a portion or all of their commission. Few are willing to go there… Hence why you normally have to go bank-to-bank, broker-to-broker to finally get close to the floor rate.

    At nesto, we believe in offering you the best rate from the start. Homeownership is one of the costliest endeavours of your life, why should you pay an additional premium?

    Yes, nesto makes less than the average broker or mortgage specialist, but we also get the peace of mind of knowing that we helped you save thousands of dollars on your mortgage.


    Is nesto allowed to sell mortgages online?

    Indeed, we are. nesto is licensed by the provincial regulatory body for each province we operate in, and our mortgage advisors are all licensed professionals.


    What types of properties does nesto consider?

    nesto would consider financing, renewing and refinancing mortgages on existing owner-occupied type-A properties used as a primary, secondary or vacation residence with up to 4 units as part of a multiplex. This includes owner-occupied rentals where some units within the property are rented out.  

    Note: Units in a multiplex must have their own separate entrances. Type-A properties are defined as those accessible year round, centrally heated and built on a foundation.
