In light of the recent Bank of Canada announcement, raising the interest on variable rate mortgages by 0.5%, we wanted to take the initiative prior to the next expected ones to provide the knowledge on how to find the available options of locking in your variable rate, should this be something you are considering. It’s expected at this snapshot in time that Prime will rise the next while to 3.95%, pre-pandemic levels. No one can predict with certainty what will happen for sure. Right now, we know rates will go up, and if you want to lock into a fixed rate, it will be around 4% with your existing lender should you decide not to want to be in variable anymore.
Here is a link to our app if you want to see how those payments will look in advance.
Your lender can be reached by emailing them a request to lock-in.
If you email them to review the options, you will be provided with those options back via email and have 1-3 days to sign and send them back should you decide to lock-in.
Should you decide to continue to be in your variable, then you simply would not sign the papers.
Below is a list of lenders that we work with along with the email/phone number to contact them to begin this process:
- Merix – email@example.com
- First National – firstname.lastname@example.org
