The BENCHMARK Rate Just Changed!

Updated: May 4, 2020

Did you know you might qualify for more?

As you know, all new mortgages in Canada since 2016 (less than 20% down)

2017 (more than 20% down) have been required to pass "The Stress Test".

This essentially means qualifying for a mortgage payment which is HIGHER than you would actually pay.

As of July 20th the Stress Test Rate came down for the first time since 2016 (albeit only .15%) from 5.34% to 5.19%. This is GREAT news for buyers, those looking to take equity out and anyone really looking to qualify for a mortgage.

So, What does this mean to you?

Currently Pre-Approved?

You will now qualify for just a little bit more! (see amount below) just reach out to the team and we can update your amount!

Looking to ReFinance

You may be able to get that extra qualification from your property in order to reduce your payments, do your reno, maybe invest!?

Bottom Line:

For every $50,000 of INCOME on a mortgage application a borrower will qualify for $5,000 more. Over a 30 Year amortization that number increases to just over $6,000 of mortgage qualification.

BONUS:  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.
