Interest Rates?? What's HAPPENING! 🤔

Updated: May 4, 2020


Wondering what you should do?

As you know, a variable rate Mortgage and/or line of credit mortgage is based on the Prime Rate, here is your personal update from me on the recent Bank of Canada announcement.

At 9:00 AM EST July 10th the Bank of Canada did what we expected, left the interest rate at 1.75%

Bottom Line:

We still are RECOMMENDING if you have a variable rate, to remember WHY you took your variable, so here are a couple of reasons to stay Variable or move to fixed:

Stay Variable:

+ Maximum 3 month interest penalty to break, re-finance, move etc.

+ Likely you are still paying a lower interest rate

+ Rates can go up and can go down

+ Options to SWITCH to other lenders mid-term to save money at lower cost

Go Fixed:

+ You want a "sure thing" payment for next few years and potential payment changes keep you up at night.

+ There is little to no chance of you making any changes on your mortgage during the term

+ Aren't likely to try to access equity, add a line of credit or make any other changes.


If you currently in a mortgage or nearing the end of your term now is the time to review options like borrowing against your equity or renewing to lock into a lower rate. Contact Us to Discuss these options

Remember: Rates are STILL very low and it is STILL a very good time to Re-Finance or Buy.
