Fixed and variable interest rates are the two alternatives that lenders utilize to compute interest rates.
Fixed Rates maintain the interest rate constant for a set length of time. These are the finest if you want to know exactly how much your mortgage will cost each month.
Variable Rates change according on the state of the economy, as they are based on the Bank of Canada Policy Rate. When interest rates climb, your monthly payments rise with them, and when they fall, your mortgage becomes less expensive.
Mortgage Terms and Amortization
The term "amortization" refers to the time it takes to pay off your mortgage in its entirety.
You must agree on what are known as Mortgage Terms in order to pay off your mortgage. Your Mortgage Terms include everything in your mortgage deal, including rates, kind, and payments.
These terms must be renewed, therefore your amortization agreement will normally be completed across several terms.
Types of Mortgages
You can choose between two types of mortgages: open and closed.
You can pay more money (without penalties) to pay down the sum of your mortgage faster with an Open mortgage, and you can renegotiate your Term before it expires.
A closed mortgage restricts the amount of extra money you can pay over and above your regular payments (without incurring a penalty), but it is ideal for budgeting. Your payment is fixed, and you often get a lower interest rate than with an open mortgage.
If this sounds confusing, don't worry; Creditlinx's professionals can explain everything in plain English during a free consultation.
Other Fees and Down Payment
To avoid additional insurance expenses from the CMHC, a down payment of at least 20% of the home's appraised value is required. Not only will your mortgage payment be lower, but your terms will be better as well.
It may take a little longer to save, but you will save thousands of dollars in the long run. These savings can be used to offset Closing Costs and the Land Transfer Tax, which are both required to complete your property purchase.
