Buying a home? Renewing your mortgage?
Does it feel like things are costing more lately? Everything from gas, groceries, and utilities. Even mortgage rates are on the rise. Nobody fully knows what the future holds, especially with all the uncertainty in the world.

Our Rate Freeze option provides security and peace of mind for the next four months while you hunt for that new pad.
- Mortgage Renewal: We've got clients breaking their existing mortgages to take advantage of today's rates, EVEN if their mortgage is not up for renewal for several months or next year. Exploring your mortgage options now could save you from renewing in what could be an even higher rate environment if you wait.

March 2022– Bank of Canada Hikes Rates, Signals More to Come
The Bank of Canada raised its key interest rate by 0.25% in early March, bringing the overnight interest rate to 0.5% and pushing the prime lending rate at big banks to 2.7%. Higher rates are already being felt by consumers. The effective interest rate paid by households across all credit products has risen by 60 basis points (bps) since the start of the year and is nearly 80bps higher than last year at this time…the steepest annual increase since 2006.
What are the interest rate projections for those looking to get into the housing market for the first time, and of course, for those who already have a mortgage that will soon be up for renewal? Will the road ahead be riddled with a few potholes or a smoothed paved surface?
