INVESTMENT MORTGAGES - CHANGES
Some changes: Approximate 4 out of 5 lenders no longer entertain 80% mortgages on rental properties... particularly for Condominium Apartments. Lenders would now mostly advance mortgages between 65-75% of the properties value, with interest rate premium. Also, the underwriting criteria for mortgaging investment properties can be significantly different from lender to lender. "Equity mortgages" are no longer allowed. These mortgages were for borrowers that have a large amount of cashable assets but little monthly income. New mortgage regulations insist that all lenders need to clearly document the ability of the borrower to pay monthly obligations with their monthly income regardless of how much money they have or assets they own. Having a lot of assets or cash, but little or no documented income, no longer secures a mortgage in Canada. This is where our expertise is crucial in guiding potential investors through their best mortgage options.
THE QUESTION: FIXED OR VARIABLE MORTGAGES
Most of borrowers rely on news, predictions, statistics, worry, or on logic that rates do fluctuate and therefore periodically rise and drop... Financial institutions historically made more profit with a standard 5-year fixed mortgages, and because of that those mortgages are generally highly preferred and more pushed by most banks - lenders. On the other side, the 5-year variable mortgage is based on expectation that changes between rising and falling rates will stay within expected reasonable range, so that on average less interest should be paid to the Bank. By examining and comparing historic data of variable and fixed mortgage rates, it is clear that variable interest rates helped borrowers save more money, and made less profit for the bank. Also, most variable rate mortgages are also "flexible" mortgages, allowig borrower the ability to convert, once, their variable rate mortgage to a fixed term mortgage, choosing a fixed rate offered at that time, with NO penalties, while with fixed mortgages, borrower is locked in with the same rate until maturity, with penalties required for any rate change. But, there are no right or wrong mortgages, as no one really knows the future, and personal preferences of each borrower.
