Catherine is amazing.

For me being a new comer to Canada (on a working visa)  helped me get my mortgage to buy my house in a couple of days.
She managed to get me also a good mortgage rate.
I highly recommend Catherine and for sure I will collaborate with her in the future.

When I bought my first house my Realtor told me “you MUST see my Mortgage Broker Catherine Fogarty”. I have since gone to her with all of my mortgage needs and consider her a trusted family friend. Thanks Cat!
~ Monika, Toronto ON

 

I have no idea what to say! Lol "you're awesome!"
As a first time home owner I relied on Catherine's expertise in handling all of my mortgage needs. She walked me through each step and made the process less stressful.

I found myself ending my marriage and starting a new chapter in my life. Needless to say it was a very difficult time, many changes occurred and I had a tremendous amount of loose ends to tie up. My biggest obstacle was keeping my beloved home and all the stress that came with it. Catherine provided me with a new mortgage at a great rate and did all the legwork with me just providing the basic details for her. I can't say enough about how she took my situation into consideration and made the transaction seamless. The mortgage she provided made it so I could be more comfortable financially and didn't have to worry about the day to day anymore. Thank you Catherine.

I work in finance but I still call Catherine to broker all of my mortgages during the last several years. She has been there since the first purchase, to many others, including showing us how to add rental properties to our investment portfolio. She saved us time, cost, and helped increase our bottom line. I refer her to all of my family, friends, and colleagues.
~ Daniel, Toronto ON & Beeton, ON
 

As first time home buyers we were very lucky to have Catherine on our side. She diligently sought out the best rates and situation for myself and my wife and gave us excellent advice all the way through the process.
When it looked like we may not get our Mortage, she fought for us and made it happen where others may have given up.

Catherine made herself available to us far beyond regular business hours and was a pleasure to deal with.
If you want an expert on your side that will go above and beyond to make things happen I would highly recommend her!
~ Tony, Dartmouth NS

 

Catherine saved me from myself, navigating my first home purchase and renewals is overwhelming with so much happening in such a short period of time.  Catherine was there with solid mortgage advice and options through the entire process.  I know that she saved me money by finding the best solution every time.  I will continue to trust Catherine with every renewal I have and still recommend her to my closest friends and family, frankly anyone else that will listen as well.

BLOG / NEWS Updates

Housing market continues to moderate in June

Statistics released today by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) show national home sales were down between May and June 2021. Home sales recorded over Canadian MLS Systems fell by 8.4% month-over month in June 2021, marking the third straight monthly slowdown since activity hit an all-time record back in March. While sales are now down a cumulative 25% from their peak, and below every other month in the last year, June transactions still managed to set a record for that month. Month-over-month declines in sales activity were once again quite broad-based, with sales moderating in around 80% of all local markets, including almost all large markets across Canada. The actual (not seasonally adjusted) number of transactions in June 2021 was up 13.6% on a year-over-year basis and marked a new record for that month. While there is still a lot of activity in many housing markets across Canada, things have noticeably calmed down in the last few months, said Cliff Stevenson, Chair of CREA. There remains a shortage of supply in many parts of the country, but at least there isnt the same level of competition among buyers we were seeing a few months ago. As these conditions continue to evolve over the summer and fall, your best bet is to consult with your local REALTOR for information and guidance about buying or selling a home at this stage in the cycle, continued Stevenson.

Record rise of home prices in May

In May the TeranetNational Bank National Composite House Price IndexTM was up 2.8% from the previous month, the largest monthly rise since the index series began in 1999. It was led by four of the 11 constituent markets: Ottawa-Gatineau (4.9%), Halifax (4.3%), Hamilton (3.7%) and Toronto (3.4%). Rises were more moderate for Vancouver (2.3%), Winnipeg (2.2%), Montreal (2.2%), Victoria (2.1%), Calgary (1.4%), Quebec City (1.2%) and Edmonton (1.2%). It was a third consecutive month in which all 11 markets of the composite index were up from the month before. The May rise was consistent with the increase in number of home sales over the last several months as reported by the Canadian Real Estate Association. For a ninth straight month, the number of sale pairs entering into the 11 metropolitan indexes was higher than a year earlier. The unsmoothed composite index, seasonally adjusted, was up 2.1% in May, suggesting that the uptrend of the published (smoothed) index could continue. The May composite index was up 13.7% from a year earlier, for a 10th consecutive acceleration and the strongest 12-month gain since July 2017. The 12-month rise was led by five markets Halifax (29.9%), Hamilton (25.5%), Ottawa-Gatineau (22.8%), Montreal (17.6%) and Victoria (15.3%). Toronto matched the countrywide average at 13.7%. Lagging that average were Vancouver (11.9%), Winnipeg (10.4%), Quebec City (9.8%), Calgary (4.5%) and Edmonton (3.6%). Besides the Toronto and Hamilton indexes included in the countrywide composite, indexes exist for seven smaller urban areas of the Golden Horseshoe Barrie, Guelph, Brantford, Kitchener, St. Catharines, Oshawa and Peterborough. In May all seven were up from the previous month and from a year earlier. The 12-month gains ranged from 27.6% for Brantford to 31.4% for Barrie. Source: https://housepriceindex.ca/2021/06/may2021/
