If you’re looking for a potential great way to invest in real estate, you need to learn what is a self directed mortgage. A self directed mortgage is a great option for people that have savings in RRSP’s and want to invest in real estate through mortgages.

Most people who invest in self directed mortgages usually have quite a bit of money saved in their RRSP’s and they want to use this to their advantage.
