Mortgage Market Update


Posted by: Cory Kline

The interest rate market has remained steady the past 7 days. No changes in rates. There is not expected to be any changes with the Bank of Canada next week.
5 year funds are available in the 3.25-3.59% range.10 year funds are now in the 3.99- 4.19% range. Variable rate mortgages are available as low as 2.55%. 
If you have a variable rate of any more than prime +.75 or a fixed rate of 4.50% or more, we should explore the merits of refinancing to a lower rate.  Should you pay a penalty and lock in now for the future? It may result in savings of thousands of dollars and a longer term at today’s low rates.
