At renewal time, we are now able to lock in a rate for you for as long as four months. Exploring your renewal options early allows you to remove the rush and stress of renewals. Often clients receiving that last minute reminder from their lender feel they have no option but to remain with that lender.
Our free no-obligation consultation can help you see what your wisest move will be.
Although a mortgage is one of their most important financial decisions, many Canadians don't put as much thought into renewing their mortgage as they should. We, however, see your mortgage renewal as a unique opportunity to make sure it reflects your current needs. Are you considering paying off your high-interest credit card debt or loans, or are you interested in financing a home renovation, dream vacation, recreational or investment property?
Other changes ? The products are more flexible. I recently had a client come in who was in a regular fixed 5 year term mortgage and it was coming up for renewal. I had been in discussions with them prior to our meeting and it was clear their mortgage was not meeting their needs:
Both clients are self employed and there is no consistency as to when the income comes in, they generate a monthly income but amounts vary.
I helped them explore a variety of options and we agreed they would benefit from a product called The Matrix:
The Matrix Mortgage gave them the flexibility of a traditional mortgage with the option of either a fixed or variable rate together with the flexibility of accessing up to 80% of their home equity through a revolving line of credit (LOC). So, as the principal on the fixed portion is paid down, the equity automatically becomes available on the LOC.
This gives my clients the perfect product to meet their needs: the freedom to access their own equity when they need it also the freedom to make extra payments on the balance, in advance and without penalties!
