SAVING YOU MONEY

Every year Canadians needlessly overpay thousands of dollars to poorly planned mortgages. Although some new home buyers might lose out due to inexperience, the truth is many Canadians simply aren’t aware of their options or what their bank or broker can do for them.

Saving money with your mortgage is more than just your rate and your term. It’s about knowing what’s available to you and having someone on your side who can capitalize on those savings during purchase, renewal, and refinance. Remember: your savings don’t end at closing—discover where and how to save more with your mortgage!

REFINANCE YOUR MORTGAGE

Looking to refinance your mortgage? Refinancing can be a powerful tool to capitalize on the market or cater your mortgage to your current and future financial plans. Using a new mortgage to pay your existing mortgage allows for more financial options including better rates and better terms for you.

  • Save money with lower interest rates – Lower your monthly payments by taking advantage of lower interest rates. If the current rate is lower than what you’re paying, you could potentially save hundreds of dollars every month by refinancing your mortgage.
  • Be Mortgage-free faster! If you have more spending power, you can refinance and shorten your term by increasing monthly payments. Put more toward your principle when rates are low to get the most from your money!
  • Free up cash for renovations or investments by tapping into the equity you’ve built.
  • Use your mortgage to save on other loans/credit – Loans/credit can bog you down as you wrestle with high interest rates to chip through the principle bit by bit. Consolidate your debt into one mortgage payment with lower interest, freeing up more money for you.
  • Better Terms That Protect and Save Your Money – Is your fixed-rate mortgage getting in the way of lower variable rates that fit your plan? Are rates climbing or are you looking for stable rates to help with monthly and yearly budgeting? Switching from one to the other may be in your best interest, but only if it ends with you coming out on top. Talk to us and be in the know when it comes to your terms and how they can save you money.

WHAT ABOUT FEES/PENALTIES? IS IT REALLY WORTH IT?

The truth is, the right refinancing strategy can save you thousands on your mortgage and even hundreds of dollars a month–but it depends on your situation, rates, and conditions. This is where an experienced broker can walk you through the process and let you know your options clearly and with a mortgage strategy tailored to you.

Knowing when to refinance comes down to the method and the numbers. Tell us your goals, and we can guide you through the best strategy to achieve them.

Contact us today and discover how refinancing can make your mortgage work for you and save more for your home.

RENEW YOUR MORTGAGE

Your mortgage term is coming to an end and it is time to renew. Don’t just sign the dotted line! This is an opportunity to gauge your financial goals before moving forward. Many Canadians miss out on opportunities to save their money or get the right terms when it comes to renewing. A lot can change in three, five, or ten years. Your mortgage should fit your current lifestyle and financial position.

Here is what to consider at the beginning versus end of term

 

1. Where are you financially and have your financial plans been affected/changed?

A new promotion, being laid off, change of employment, spouse, and family all factor in to financial obligations and planning. If you find your expenses are more of a financial burden, it might be time to explore lowering monthly payments or consolidating debt. If you’ve experienced a financial upturn, now could be the time to shorten your mortgage by putting more toward your monthly payments.

2. Is your current lender still your best option?

You are not obligated to remain with the same lender at the end of your term and can refinance to another lender. There may be other institutions that provide better rates and terms that weren’t available when you first got your mortgage. If you don’t shop around, you won’t know and could get stuck with a rate that costs you more than it should.

3. How much is left on your mortgage?

The less there is remaining, the smaller the commission for brokers and less return for lenders. That means if you have a significant balance remaining, it might be easier to negotiate for better offers. Talk to us to determine what we can do for you and your remaining balance.

4. Refinance without penalties!

Refinancing can provide a lot of benefits and financial options to mortgage holders, but it also comes with fees, including penalties for refinancing mid-term. And that’s fine as long as those fees are less than what you will save by refinancing. Avoid those penalties by refinancing at the end of your term during the renewal process to maximize your savings.

Remember: Your current lender may or may not be your best option, so talk to us about lenders and what they can do to save you more with your mortgage. A lot can happen in five years (or more!) and evaluating your options will ensure the best rates, terms, and action plans that are right for you. For help on how to get there, contact us today!
