tania king: What?!? More money down for a deposit? No more 30 year terms? - 02/29/12 07:34 AM
CRAZY!
First time home buyers, if you are thinking about buying a home in Calgary Alberta, you may want to pick up the pace. I just got word that amount down may be changing from 5% to 10% (currently there are still some cash back / Zero downs available – but they may be going as well), and the 30 year terms may be gone too.  They are talking about going back to the 25 year terms.
This is going to hurt our market! This will take a lot of the first time buyers out of the market completely. Which will … (1 comments)

tania king: Interest rates Down! - 05/27/11 11:47 AM
Yahoo! Rates came down! You may want to take advantage of this… Thanks Dave!
 
3.69%  for 5 year fixed
 
3.53%  for 4 year fixed
 
3.40% for 3 year fixed
 
These are all 30 day rate holds and the rate does not increase much for longer holds (IE: .01 for 60 days and .03 for 90 days sort of thing depending on which term). Also, this lender pays for legal fees and appraisals on refinances, so if you have a client wanting to pull equity out to purchase another property or consolidate debts this is an excellent product.
