The lending landscape is ever evolving in Canada and I pride myself in being at the forefront of that evolution .  There are new products, rules and challenges now more than ever.   I am a seasoned broker who is in my 10th year in the industry.  As a Mortgage Constant I pride myself in the excellent service that I provide my clients.  I get to know my clients on a personal level so I can be sure that I am offering the right product for their unique situation.  I help my clients understand what they are signing and what they can expect.  That way there will be no surprises down the road. I am in constant contact with any answers to questions along the way.  I remain with my clients for the life of ownership and often regard my clients as my friends.  To put it simply, I love what I do!

PROMISES, PROMISES AND MORE PROMISES

Canadas Parliament re-convened today with a ceremonial Speech from the Throne delivered by the Governor General. Canadas continued response to the COVID-19 pandemic took centre-stage, while providing a lens for a plethora of broader promises: an extension of the wage subsidy, expanded employment insurance, investments in childcare, reaffirmed commitments to universal pharmacare, and green infrastructure investments among many others. Given the exhaustive list of priorities, this Speech is unlikely to bring the minority government down as it provides plenty of hooks for negotiations in the lead-up to a Fall update where details will be laid out. It clearly signals more fiscal spending ahead for Canada leaving the question not if but how much. But this was largely channeled ahead, so the market reaction has been mutedor more likely, it is eclipsed by broader US and global developments. There is little beyond lip service by way of fiscal restraint. This will be left to the Finance Minister to make inevitable trade-offs in her first budget this Fall, particularly as she may need to reserve some firepower for second waves.

Home affordability improved in Q2 2020

Housing affordability in Canadas large urban centres improved in the second quarter of 2020 after having deteriorated in the two prior quarters. Higher incomes helped in Q2 but the largest portion of the improvement came in the form of lower interest rates. Indeed, the latter declined 19 basis points in the quarter, reflecting the easing from the central bank. Combined, income and mortgage rates were more than enough to offset the increase in home prices. Still, the decline in interest rates on a quarterly average basis does not completely reflect the change in 5-year mortgage rates since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The February to June decline in mortgage interest rates was a much more significant 41 basis points. Looking ahead, the preliminary data for rates shows additional improvements in the third quarter of the year (cumulatively they are down over 70 bps). While we expect this to help affordability, home prices should remain resilient based on the latest resale market data showing record sales volumes. Homebuyers have rushed back to the market after having delayed purchases and are now being offered record-low interest rates. Once pent-up demand is exhausted, the Canadian housing market will still have to face high levels of unemployment and reduced household formation due to lower immigration.
