About Niagara Falls

Grand by any description, Niagara Falls is a draw for honeymooners and adventurers of all ages. Marilyn Monroe put it on the map with the 1953 epic Niagara and Canadian Margot Kidder did it again in 1980 in Superman II. The massive Horseshoe Falls is lit up until midnight, with breathtaking views of thundering rapids. Nik Wallenda of The Flying Wallendas, who crossed the falls on a steel cable for an ABC TV special in 2012, calls the spectacle “unbelievable”. Housing is still affordable and with scenic wineries, Lake Erie beaches and golf courses nearby, the city of 12 million tourists is the friendliest place around.

Some FAQs

Sometimes, depending on the type of business and local zoning laws. Retail businesses may be limited to mixed retail/residential planning zones because of traffic and noise concerns. Anything that involves a commercial kitchen or onsite manufacturing site is generally out. Municipalities are more lenient about businesses like IT or remote work that don’t require customers to come to your home, or create a fire or other health hazard.
We assume you either missed too many payments or have a lot of debt. Your options are to find a new lender, through a mortgage broker or on your own, or try credit unions, where mortgage stress tests are optional. High ratio lenders like Sagen™ or Canada Guaranty can also be forgiving. You could try private lenders for a short-term mortgage while you rebuild your credit rating, or renting part of your home to bring in income. If you’ve exhausted the options, list your home for sale before your lender forecloses.
The federal government has tightened up mortgage lending terms to curb Canadian’s borrowing habits. That includes restricting mortgage amortization periods to 35 years, from the previous high of 40. Other than to lower your monthly payments, longer amortization periods are not generally recommended. Ratehub.ca estimates borrowers would pay $184,125 in interest over 35 years for the same mortgage they could retire with $127,962 in interest over 25 years.
