NEW Mortgage Stress Test | How it will affect YOU

General Angela Calla 1 Jun

Further to the original announcement in early April, the new mortgage stress test released on June 1st has officially increased for home purchases and those looking to refinance. This has caused a decrease in their borrowing power by about 5%.

To put this in perspective, if they were approved for 1 million dollars, that is reduced to approx. 950k. You can download our app to see how this will impact you.

Some points to keep in mind about the new mortgage stress test:

  • Rates are still near record lows, and these new changes do not increase your borrowing cost.
  • All lenders have different sources of income they will utilize to help you qualify for the mortgage that is right for you. We have seen lenders step up in many different ways, and most recently with a special first responders program.
  • As an unbiased mortgage broker, we protect your credit by reviewing all the options by all the lenders in the country to find a mortgage to suit your needs with the best value for you, that are only available to us as licensed professionals
