Where Have the Variable Rate Mortgages Gone?

PART 1 of the Rev N You with Real Estate Series on the Mortgage Market in Canada

October 20th, 2008:6 minutes 32 seconds

The October 15, 2008 removal of insured 40 year amortization mortgages and no money down deals was announced months ago. So it came as no surprise that those deals were pulled off of the table as the market uncertainty mounted.  But,a variable rate mortgage at prime PLUS 1.5%? That was a market change that nobody expected. And, as Cindy Faulkner of Meridian Coastal Mortgages explains, it happened overnight!

Listen as Dave Peniuk (of Rev N You) discusses the current mortgage market in Canada with Cindy, and find out what mortgage Cindy recommends you get in right now if you’re an investor or someone buying your family home.
