If you value stability over anything else, then a fixed rate mortgage is the way to go. With this mortgage, an interest rate is set according to the prime rate at the time of origination and won’t change, no matter what the markets do. This allows you to confidently plan your financial future without any surprises.
On the other hand, if you want to take advantage of the lower starting rates, the historic outperformance of variable interest rates, and you are willing to take on some extra risk, a variable rate mortgage is a perfectly good option.
An open mortgage allows you to finish paying your mortgage ahead of your full term. The benefit of doing so is that you will end up paying much less in interest by finishing off your principle early. Depending on your lender and product, there might be certain limits to by how much you can increase your monthly payments or how big a prepayment you can make.
A closed mortgage effectively locks you in for the full agreed upon term when you purchased the mortgage. Some lenders will still allow you to make prepayments or increase your payments; however, there will almost certainly be a prepayment fee or penalty. On the plus side, closed mortgages usually have lower interest rates.
Recently, the down payment requirements for residential mortgages were changed in order to limit the risk of giving out mortgages to lenders and borrowers. Under new requirements, mortgages for all homes below $500,000 require a minimum 5% down while homes between $500,000 and $1 million require a 5% on the initial $500,000 and then 10% on the amount over that.
That means for a $750,00 loan, you will pay 5% on the first $500,000 = $25,000
+ 10% on the remaining $250,000 = $25,000.
The minimum down payment you will have to make is then $50,000.
The higher down payment you can make (which ranges from 5% to 25%), the lower your interest rate will be. It also equates to a higher equity in your home from the start. This equity can be used as leverage for a line of credit or second mortgage.
You need to carefully consider whether you want to an open or closed mortgage when looking at mortgages with different terms. You can find short-term mortgages from 6 months to 5 years and long-term mortgages from 5 to 25 years.
If you opt for a longer, closed mortgage, you will have the lowest regular payments (even with higher interest rates), but you will be locked into your mortgage until your term is up. Shorter mortgages will have higher payments, but you will pay less interest in total.
I had to port a mortgage to a new condo, Leon had excellent knowledge to get me through the approval process. When the bank made an error, Leon was quick to contact them to make sure everything was done right and on time. He is very professional and courteous and I recommend his service to anyone who wishes to apply for a mortgage.
Giving them 5/5 stars. Massoud helped me with my mortgage and he never missed a beat. He made the process very straightforward as a first time home buyer. Shopped around for other mortgages but he was always the first to get things for me. Highly recommend him
I was looking to renew my mortgage and my previous lender was less than willing to do anything to keep my business. So I started to look for another brokerage to do business with and Certified Mortgage Broker stood out purely based on my interactions with Massoud. Massoud was professional and clearly had a keen sense of customer service; which I make a high priority when doing business with anyone since I'm in the customer service business myself. Peter rolled out the red carpet for me, walked me through my options, inquired about my plans with my current property, give me opinions and facts about rentals in the area, sales/purchases. In some respects he gave me more information about real estate than my real estate agent has!
Selling and buying a home is a stressful experience and Leon with CMB in North York took all of the stress out of arranging the financing. He was very professional and clear about what I needed to provide to him. He used this information to arrange the best mortgage option on our new home, arranged the bridge loan to cover the closing period differential, and arranged closing out the mortgage with the previous lender.. Our experience with Leon is far better than the local in-person brokers that we contacted previously and Leon has helped us with a mortgage renewal in the past with the same excellent experience.
Leon returned my called from a missed call within 15 minutes of my call and I left no message. Leon and his team were fantastic. Even with the money issues we had Leon made me feel important and valued as a person.
