The month of September saw pressure build in the bond market which has resulted in fixed mortgage rates moving higher. More recently the US Federal Government shutdown causing the trend to reverse for the short term. Meanwhile the Bank of Canada’s qualifying rate has remained steady. The prime lending rate is also holding keeping interest rates on variable and home equity lines of credit unchanged. Here is what you need to know for your best October mortgage today:
Bank Of Canada Rates
Qualifying Rate: 5.34% Prime Rate: 3.00%
As of this writing we have a qualifying rate of 5.34%. This affects all mortgage qualification outside of the popular 5 year fixed mortgage. On the variable and line of credit mortgage products – the Bank of Canada’s prime rate is holding steady at 3.00%.
Fixed Mortgage Rates – US Shutdown Effect
When we look at fixed mortgage rates – we have to understand that the bond market dictates the interest rates you and I pay. As of this writing there are changes which are moving interest rates lower. The US Federal Government shutdown is affecting our Canadian markets causing a respite to the ongoing trend for rising fixed interest rates. This may change as quickly as an agreement is reached. I have access to a number of lenders who are lowering rates in the immediate so contact me as soon as possible. Here is the best of what is available today:
Remember – if you are pursuing any fixed mortgage term less than 5 years – you will be required to utilize the 5.34% qualifying rate to see if you can afford the mortgage.
