Recently we were interviewed by Global News to talk about the surging remortgaging numbers as interest rates continue to increase.
“People are going from being in fixed rates of two percent to the high fours and even fives, so on a $500,000 mortgage you could see a payment increase of up to $500 a month”
In these uncertain times, having a mortgage strategy is critical. We consider these steps crucial in part of your mortgage plan:
- Do not wait on your renewal date
- Get a rate hold in
- Do not just sign the renewal with your existing lender
- Approach an independent mortgage professional to review all the options
If you are currently on a variable rate and wonder if you should lock in, it is all dependent on your own level of risk tolerance. “With a variable rate mortgage, you should review the discount you have, you should review your financial plan if you plan on moving or making any lifestyle changes in the next five years, and you should understand what a fixed rate option is today.”
