Online Mortgage Pre-approvals

A mortgage pre-approval is a great first step in your homebuying journey. By being pre-approved, you can confidently begin your house search.

By applying for a mortgage pre-approval* at Synergy, our goal is to provide you with a TRUE approval – this is so much more than a mortgage pre-qualification.

What makes this even more convenient? We’ll be in touch with you quickly and no later than the next business day.

*Good to know:  If you are pre-approved with Synergy, it means that we have stated that you qualify for a mortgage loan based on the information you have provided and subject to certain conditions. Your mortgage pre-approval will specify a term, interest rate and principal amount. This is a helpful step, as it can give you a clearer picture of how much you may be able to afford.



How it works:

Start your online application now and receive your pre-approval amount along with a 120-day guaranteed interest rate (including a special five-year rate at 2.14%).

If you are moving your mortgage to Synergy, make sure to ask about our Mortgage Switch program, which could save you up to $1,500 on the fees associated with moving your mortgage.

If you have more questions, our mortgage specialists will be happy to assist you.




Let's get started:

We have a couple of options for you.

Apply online

If you don’t mind entering information on a secure platform and there are two or less applicants, this is a good choice for you.
*Please note, the application cannot be saved once you have started. It's a great idea to check out the "To help you get ready" section below.

Speak to a mortgage specialist

If you prefer to discuss your needs with a specialist, or if there are more than two applicants, this is the best path for you.

To help you get ready​
