FAQ

Common questions

Where does Magenta lend?

Magenta funds real estate properties located in strong, stable urban markets where we have deep experience and understanding of property valuations, like Ottawa, Cambridge and Kitchener-Waterloo.

Does your “No Doc” product require a notice of assessment?

No. We don’t require any income verification. We are a property-first lender. Is the property typical for the neighbourhood and in a marketable area? If the answer is yes, then our No Doc product is a great solution!

What types of properties do you lend on?

Quality residential real estate located in strong, urban real estate markets in Ontario, with a heavy overweighting of 1st mortgages secured by owner occupied single family homes.

Are there property types that are excluded

Properties with wood foundations

Properties on a flood plain

Properties on leased land

Remote rural properties

Properties outside the primary lending areas with a value of less than $150,000.00

Mobile homes

Remediated grow ops/meth labs

Properties with holding tanks

Properties on cisterns

Properties with a shared well

Farm land from which income is derived

Properties where the sole source of heat is an outdoor furnace

Log homes

Properties with any gas tanks or fuel storage
