Bank of Canada is putting a hold on interest rates – The Jill Bennett Show

General Angela Calla 11 Feb

Recently, Angela was invited to speak on The Jill Bennett Show in light of the recent Bank of Canada announcement. We can breathe a sigh of relief as there was no rise in interest rates. But that’s not to say we shouldn’t stay vigilant. The rates are sure to increase this year, and this means now is the time to make the most of these historic low rates and use them to your advantage.

We have gotten many concerned clients call and ask if they should lock in their variable rate, in preparation for the eventual increases. While this can be the way to go, depending on your personal comfort level, our goal is to try and lower that principal amount. A way to relieve some of that tension is to pay that variable rate as if it were a fixed rate, so when the increases do finally come, the change will still be lower than what you pay. As historically, the Bank of Canada will only raise the interest rates by 0.25%. That’s only equivalent to a $13 increase per 100K in your mortgage!

More is discussed in the actual interview, so if you have seven minutes to spare, we do recommend giving it a listen. Knowledge is power, and we want to ensure you are equipped with the right tools to navigate the market in these trying times.

We also have an upcoming webinar this month on protecting yourself during the time of rising interest rates. So, if you or a loved one have an upcoming mortgage renewal or are looking to utilize home equity to consolidate debt, join us on February 24, at 7:00 PM!
