How Low Can Rates Go? 5yrs @ 3.69%

Today I received an update from one of my primary lenders confirming that I am able to offer clients:

5 year term @ 3.69%


This is the lowest 5 year fixed rate that I have ever seen.  The cost of borrowing is now ridiculously low, despite the fact that the qualifying standards have become more strict.


As an example, $200,000 mortgage can now be had with a monthly payment as low as $845/month!


Now I don't know about your particular town or city, but in Lethbridge and most of southern Alberta a $200,000 home will typically have a monthly rent of $1200 or $1300 per month.   The cost of buying is waaaaaaayyyyyyyyy lower than the cost of renting the same type of home.


If you have been considering shopping for a home or a mortgage, lets talk about your options.  There are other factors to consider besides the amazing low rate.

Sent in a lot of files this past week and the lenders are sure being fussy about things.  Some of the clients fit the parameters of lender requirements but were still faced with declines or demands for more documentation.
