5 yr Govt of Canada bond yields are up over 30bps in May. We should expect fixed mortgage rates to increase if they hold at this level. If you are thinking of buying, refinancing or if your mortgage is coming up for renewal, I suggest you contact your mortgage broker and get some rates held. This could be the beginning of the long-awaited mortgage rate hikes.
There is another chart you should look at if you want to see where Fixed mortgage rates are headed over the next 6 months. The 2 year Govt of Canada bond yields are a good 6 month indicator of where rates are going…. and this chart shows the 2 year bond yields jumped over 25bps in May.
We’ll report any changes as they get announced.
Your best interest is my only interest.
As always, I welcome your comments, calls and questions.
