The Regulatory Environment
In the fall of 2016, a new regulation was brought forward by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), which is involved in insuring mortgages in the case that a borrower defaults. This new regulation involves testing all insured mortgages with a stress test to see if the borrower can handle a sudden spike in interest rates. While this new practice may lower interest rates for those who pass the stress test, it could make it more difficult for those with lower credit ratings to acquire financing. The government has also been pushing for lenders to begin sharing the cost in the event of a default, which may also put upward pressure on interest rates.
As these events and new regulations are constantly being implemented, it is important to have a mortgage broker who is up to date on all the news and has the expertise to navigate and hurdle that is thrown at your mortgage. You will find this in Gerard Buckley, who is committed to finding you the most appropriate mortgage rate for your situation.

As a result, hiring Gerard means you get access to decades of interest rate experience and someone who can get you the best mortgage rate in current market conditions.
Interest Rate Complexity
Interest rates may seem simple at first, however they can significantly vary and are dependent on many factors. For instance, variable interest rates will always be lower than fixed when the loan is first acquired, as the borrower is taking on more of the risk with a variable-rate loan. However, this means that if there is a spike in rates, you are the one on the line to pay for it. When it comes to insurance, insured mortgages always have a lower rate than uninsured mortgages. In the case of default, lenders providing uninsured mortgages may not be able to force a foreclosure on your home, however they will charge very high interest rates.
Beyond these general guidelines, market conditions, economic conditions, and the actions of the Bank of Canada all play their role in altering interest rates and are very difficult to keep track of. Gerard will help you avoid any missteps and ensure you get the best mortgage rate available in current conditions. He will be in your corner through the duration of your mortgage, ensuring you will be able to navigate any changes in interest rates or new regulations.
