Begin your house search with an Online Mortgage Pre-approval

Looking for what to bring to your appointment?

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.

If you are moving your mortgage to Synergy, make sure to ask about our Mortgage Cashback program.

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.
