The age-old debate:  The security of fixed rate versus the potential savings by having a variable rate that adjusts with the Bank of Canada prime rate.  Let’s get you into something you are comfortable with! We could write a small book on this topic but let’s be honest, who reads that much anymore?  We’re actually grateful you’ve read this far so, as a thank you, here’s a video to explain the difference.
Trying to select the best mortgage term for everyone is like declaring the best flavour of ice cream, it just can’t be done!

Just like no two people are exactly alike, the same goes for mortgages.  Picking the right mortgage is beneficial to your long-term planning and it can help you pay your mortgage down faster.

Everyone’s circumstances and goals are different and our role in this process is to understand your needs and wants before helping you choose a mortgage term.  Once we’ve established what best fits your financial plan, we can then present you with a variety of options that will keep you on track.

The combination of a well thought out plan, with a mortgage that offers pre-payment flexibility and a term that aligns with your life, is a recipe for smart home ownership. 

Let’s start a conversation about how we can get you exactly what you’re looking for!
