Interest Rates Continue to Rise

The Big Six raised their mortgage rates again in January this year, increasing the five-year fixed rate mortgage from 4.99% to 5.14%. Most mortgage holders pay less than the fixed rate due to discounts, but the increases will affect them nonetheless when they renew their mortgages. Certified Mortgage Broker provide’s you the best Fixed mortgage rates in Mississauga.

This is the first time in more than four years that the fixed mortgage rate has breached 5%. The announcement was followed by a 0.25% increase in the overnight rate by the Bank of Canada, which will affect the prime interest rate and ultimately variable mortgage rates.

The increases mean that the people of Mississauga and other areas around the country who are renewing their mortgages face an increase for the first time in many years. According to a Bank of Canada report, 47% of Canadian mortgages will be up for renewal within a year.

Many Mississauga Residents are Financing their Homes with Fixed Mortgages

Twenty years ago, most Canadians took fixed mortgage rates to protect themselves from the risk of rising interest rates but in the two decades up to the start of 2017, interest rates fell reaching their lowest levels in 2009, plateauing at slightly higher rates for five years and then dropping again in 2015.

As Interest rates fell many residents of Mississauga and other Canadian suburbs opted for lower variable interest rates. Now it seems that the tide has changed and it is likely that many homeowners may opt to protect themselves by paying the higher fixed interest rates. Many Canadians, particularly younger homeowners, are opting for the security of fixed loans with 66% choosing the fixed option.

Fixed mortgage rates give you the security of knowing what interest rates you will be paying over the medium to long-term, and by implication what your repayments will be. For this, you will pay a premium. The additional cost should be seen as a type of insurance against unexpected interest rate changes.

A fixed rate can alleviate budget anxiety due to its stability and all households that are tight on cash are encouraged to lock into a fixed interest mortgage.

Fixed Interest Rates – the Facts

Fixed interest rates are based on the five-year government bond rate. The bond yields are driven by economic factors such as unemployment and inflation. Variable mortgages are based on the Prime Interest rate which is in turn determined by the Bank of Canada’s key rate, the rate at which banks borrow funds.

Fixed mortgages are typically taken over terms of one, three, five or ten years. The term can, however, be as little as six months or as long as thirty years. In Canada, the five-year mortgage is the most popular. A shorter mortgage cycle should be considered where a change in residence may be expected in the short term, as breaking a longer mortgage agreement could cost you penalties.

Buying out a fixed rate mortgage can be expensive as you essentially have to pre-pay the interest charges on your contract. Typically, the amount is calculated as three months of interest or the differential interest rate whichever is the greater.

In the end, the choice between fixed and variable rates will depend on your income, your debt burden and your risk tolerance as variable rates have proven to be cheaper over the long run, but the risk-averse might not have the stomach for them.

OUR CUSTOMERS LOVE US

I've worked with mortgage brokers before and have had some issues, so wasn’t sure if i wanted to go to a bank or a broker again. I ended up finding Leon and his team and the reviews seemed really positive, so i decided to just give them a call and see what they offer. Leon explained everything over the phone and was able to adjust to my schedule for a meeting. We ended up going over everything from start to finish, I explained my situation and he recommended a mortgage for me. He explained how it would save me money and how he would guide me step by step. At any point during the process he was literally just a phone call away and was very responsive. The best experience I’ve ever had with my mortgage. Gonna stick with Leon and his team from now on.

I found Leon a few months ago when we were looking to secure a mortgage for our new home. I read the reviews and they all seemed positive, so I gave him a call. Leon and his team honestly live up to their reputation, they answer all their calls, respond to emails within the hour and have the best rates I’ve seen. They know everything about the market and answer every question I have. Got a great rate and the customer service was outstanding. Would recommend to anyone, 5 stars

Most of my income is in dividends so my mortgage approval turned out to be a lot more complicated than normal. Leon guided me step by step through the whole process. He explained everything, was very patient and answered any questions i had. A week before the closing the lender asked for some additional documents and Leon was just a phone call away and was able to get everything together right away. Great service and great team.

Working with Leon has honestly been amazing. He managed to find a bunch of properties at a great price. We told him what we were looking for and our budget, he was able to find properties that we were able to renovate and re market. It has honestly been a pleasure working with him.
