Green Mortgages?

Mortgage Specialist

Apparently, the Conservation Council of Ontario and Citizens Bank are the first to offer "green mortgages" which include certain benefits for being environmentally conscious. It might have been an interesting option to look into, but it doesn't appear as though they offer it in our area, unfortunately.

Go Green with the new Ontario Green Mortgage

If you are looking to buy a home in Ontario, care about the environment and are committed to doing all you can to help make a difference - just like we are - then the Green Mortgage is for you. It's a mortgage that helps you identify changes that can be made in your home to help the environment while reducing your energy costs and saving you money with our competitive mortgage rates at the same time.

What comes with going Green?

With the Citizens Bank Green Mortgage, you get all the features and benefits of a traditional Citizens Bank mortgage: including flexible payment options, a choice of financing and a complimentary Home Advantage package, which includes a line of credit of $10,000 at prime and retail savings on furniture, d├ęcor, paint and home appliances.

PLUS, you'll also receive a complimentary Green Gift Package:

  • A blue curb side recycling box
  • Compact Fluorescent Ener-lights, courtesy of the Conservation Council of Ontario
  • Coupons for energy efficient products and services from local businesses
  • A complimentary Green$avers Home Energy Audit ($250 value) which will give you an overall picture of how you are using energy in your home, identify potential problem areas and recommend steps that can be taken to make your home more energy efficient.

Plus, for every Green Mortgage funded, Citizens Bank will make a $100 donation to the Conservation Council of Ontario. Beyond this, the Green Mortgage offers our usual low, no haggle rates, approval process and servicing.
