Benefits of a U.S. Mortgage

The U.S. mortgage industry is highly regulated. That means securing a mortgage loan in the U.S. is more complex and takes longer than in Canada. Yet, there are several benefits to financing real estate in the U.S. with RBC Bank.

  • Canadian credit history. We'll use your Canadian credit history to help you secure your loan.
  • We get to know you. For RBC Royal BankTM clients, we'll review your full RBC relationship to know as much as we can about you.
  • No prepayment penalties. You can repay your mortgage at any time you like.
  • We "speak Canadian". By specializing in real estate lending for Canadians, our dedicated team of cross-border mortgage advisors expertly guide you through the differences between the U.S. and Canada and put the process in terms you understand.
  • No foreign national fee. Many U.S. banks charge Canadians a foreign national premium, which can add 1 to 3% to your mortgage rate. RBC Bank never charges a foreign national premium fee.
