Mortgage Rates have Dropped and Will Fall Further

Mortgage shopping

Rate forecasting isn’t rocket science – it’s more common sense than you think! But, it requires a clear mind to make sense of all the rubbish that’s being published these days.

I’ve been forecasting for a while now that interest rates would start to come back down this year. Currently, interest rates are down by around 0.4% and will come down further.

WHY ARE RATES FALLING?  Continue reading “Mortgage Rates have Dropped and Will Fall Further”

New 2nd mortgage options at 3.50% with no legal fee or appraisal fee!

canadian-money-gift

I’m reposting this article due to the tremendous response and numerous inquiries..  

We recently came across a lender that is offering an unheard of offer.   Secured lines of credit in 2nd position at Prime plus 0.50%.  That’s 3.50% today!   We haven’t seen this sort of offer in quite a while for 2nd mortgages.  Here’s the qualifying details:

  • you have to have good credit
  • you need provable income to qualify along
  • there must be adequate equity in your home.   The product allows you to borrow up to 80% of the appraised value of your home.
  • the appraisal fee and legal fees are covered by the lender (that’s a $1200 savings)!!
  • a small broker fee may apply …. see me for details.

This rate is truly incredible for such a product.  But having the legal fees and appraisal covered is truly amazing! I rarely get this excited about a product but this one has me pumped!   For those that don’t know, most 2nd mortgage options begin at 10% to 12% plus fees.

For those that can’t provide traditional income confirmation, such as self-employed or commissioned employees, there are other options for you.  The rates are higher but there are options.  And for those with slow or poor credit, you also have some options available for mortgage funds.. provided there is adequate equity in your home.   Remember, each situation is reviewed on a case by case basis.  Pricing and cost will vary.

If you are looking for some extra funds or access to a line of credit, this product could be a great option.

Happy Holidays!

Online shopping for Stocks, Vacations and Mortgages. An In-depth comparison…

which mortgageIS CHOOSING A MORTGAGE IS AS EASY AS BOOKING A TRIP OR TRADING A STOCK?…LET’S FIND OUT!

Sure, you can book a flight online or a buy a stock through the web.   But, can you really choose the right mortgage product on your own?  Can you really find the absolutely lowest cost mortgage financing option?  I’ll bet some consumers can. I’ll also bet the vast majority cannot…. and there’s a steady stream of horror stories, on this news site and others, that show just how costly and financially dangerous it is to be in the wrong mortgage product, with the wrong lender.

I’ve shared dozens of those experiences on this site.    Consumers who were directed into the wrong mortgage by their Banker or by some web site claiming to offer ‘the lowest rate’.   I empathize with these consumers as I believe they were just trying to save some money but instead ended up paying far more than they had to.
