Rate Cuts and Pending Deals – A quick note

As the dust starts to settle on yesterday’s Bank of Canada rate cut, here’s some clarification on what happens next.

To all my pending clients or clients with something on the go, your rates will be automatically adjusted downward.

For new clients, prospective purchasers, or people that want to take advantage of these falling rates, don’t hesitate to reach out to my office today. I am happy to discuss how you can take advantage of this.

Your best interest is my only interest.

As always, I welcome your comments, calls and questions.

  1. Hi Steve

    Rates adjusted going down automatically are only for those with variable rate mortgages no? Fixed rates won’t be impacted I thought?

    • Hi Esther,

      Variable rates have been affected by the Bank of Canada reducing their Target Rate by 1.00% in two weeks. If you are in an existing Variable rate mortgage, you will see your rate go down by 1.00%. That will come into effect on April 1st. If you are in the middle of applying for a mortgage today, you will see Variable rate pricing has increase over the last week. It’s gone from Prime less 1.00% to Prime less 0.05% and some banks are at Prime plus 0.60%.

      Fixed rates have also gone down and up. They went down to 2.29% for hi ratio insured mortgages, and are now up to 2.64%. Conventional mortgage have gone from 2.49% to 2.94%.

      thank you

      Steve
