Many mortgage professionals and banks claim to offer the lowest mortgages rates but does that mean it is going to be the best mortgage for you?

 

Mortgage professionals and financial institutions love the term "lowest mortgage rates". What they sometimes forget to mention are the penalties that can be associated with getting the lowest mortgage rate. You could be locking in to what is called a “No Frills Mortgage”. This is a type of mortgage which may have very little flexibility. The mortgage could consist of higher penalties for breaking the mortgage, low or no prepayment privileges and it could even have a clause that you must sell your home to get out of the mortgage.

 

As part of Best Mortgage Loans Inc. I work with the most reputable lenders in the industry. It is my top priority to find my clients the lowest mortgage rate while also ensuring they are in a mortgage that fits their financial needs. I am constantly being offered amazing promotions which allow me to get my clients those low rates they are looking for. I do not want to advertise the lowest mortgages rates because that may not always be the case. There may be someone out there that can beat my rates. That said, I assure you that I will fight to get you the lowest mortgage rates I can, with the best terms.

 

The advantage of working with a mortgage broker or mortgage agent as opposed to dealing with a mortgage specialist at a bank is that we deal with multiple lenders. This enables me to the find lenders who can place all types of business such as 1st and 2nd mortgages, private mortgages, refinancing, home equity loans, rental and investment properties, secondary homes and construction loans. I also have access to a great network of mortgage brokers and lenders to handle your commercial mortgage needs. Whether you are a first time home buyer, you are self-employed or new to Canada, these are all areas I specialize in as a mortgage professional.

 

Even though Best Mortgage Loans Inc. is located in Hamilton, ON and a lot of my mortgage business is in the Hamilton area, I service areas all over Canada. As a resident of Hamilton I have established a great network of like-minded business men and women, realtors, home inspectors, appraisers, lawyers etc. These are all individuals I deal with that are an integral part of the mortgage process.

Similar Housing Demand Conditions in Canada and US

Housing markets in Canada and the US are sizzling. Recent headlines have used superlatives to describe housing market conditions in both countries and the data do back this up. Still, a closer look reveals some interesting distinctions as well. Home price and sales metrics show that while the US market is hot, Canadas is hotter. For example, existing home sales, which make up the majority of overall sales in both countries, is well above historical averages, but Canadian home sales have outperformed. As of March 2021, home sales in Canada were 75% higher than the average over 2018 and 2019, while it was 13% above in the US. Likewise, home prices also spiked. In Canada, the average home sold was 32% more expensive than what it was a year ago, and it was 17% higher stateside. From a high level, the list of commonalties across markets during the pandemic is longer than the areas of difference, particularly on the demand side. Perhaps the most influential demand-side driver has been historically low mortgage rates. Responding to the impacts of the pandemic, the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve slashed rates and enacted large quantitative easing programs early last year, resulting in a sharp drop in borrowing costs. Given that the US conventional mortgage rate is a 30-year rate compared to Canadas 5-year benchmark, borrowing costs fell faster in America as flight to safety flows lowered longer term yields at the onset of the pandemic.

CANADA HOUSING MARKET and new stress test

Canadian home sales took a turn in April 2021, declining by 12.5% (sa m/m) from the highest level on record in March 2021. Listings followed suit, falling by 5.4% (sa m/m). While both sales and listings decreased in April, the smaller decline in listings further eased the national-level sales-to-new listings to 75.2% from record high readings earlier this year (the highest being 91% in January). While this is a move in the right direction towards a better supply-demand balance, the ratio is still significantly higher than its long-term average of 54.5%. As a result of this persistent tightness in the housing market, the composite MLS Home Price Index (HPI) rose by 2.4% (sa m/m). This is a deceleration in price gains from paces observed over the last two months, owing in the most part to a slowing in prices for single-family homes and townhouses. Apartments, which had remained relatively close to pre-pandemic levels before accelerating earlier this year have maintained momentum in April. Movements in the housing market this month continued to be broad-based rather than market-specific, as declines in sales were spread out across much of the country. The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) also announced that, effective June 1, the minimum qualifying rate for uninsured mortgages (i.e., residential mortgages with a down payment of 20 percent or more) will be the greater of the mortgage contract rate plus 2 percent or 5.25 percent.
