Mixer Mortgage™

Share the pizza, split the bill.

Featured members

Ten close friends from East Van bought 4 acres on the Sunshine Coast to build a neighbourhood that’s affordable to them.

The Mixer Mortgage™ is a type of joint mortgage that allows you to share the costs of home ownership with others while choosing the mortgage rate, term and amortization that works best for each individual person.

Great if

You want to pool your resources with other people and buy a house together. The Mixer Mortgage works well for multi-generational families who want to live together, friends who dream of building your own neighbourhood, or roommates who decide to buy instead of splitting rent.

Key features.

Buy a bigger pie.

Partnering with others increases your purchasing power, so it’s easier to afford the home you want. However, it also means if one person can’t pay their share, everyone else remains equally responsible for the entire amount of the mortgage.

Order it your way.

Though your mortgage is shared, it’s yours to customize. Each person on the mortgage can have their preferred interest rate1 and type, term and amortization.
