How Low will it go??????

Mortgage and Lending with Lynn Meldrum with Verico Canada First Mortgage

How low will the interest rates go before they start to eek up?  That's the million dollar question for everyone in the Mortgage and Financial feild.  If I only had a crystal ball!  However in good news, Resale in homes has risen for the first time since Sept 2008.  Always some thing to look forward to.  Check out my Crystal Ball is your new home shown.

This is just great news for all of us affected by the realestate business.

Well something must have happened this week.  All of a sudden out of the blue the phone has started ringing again and people are looking to buy and to finance.  Thank goodness, I have been living on my retirement fund for the past 6 months, lol.

Lynn, the real question is: when will consumer confidence really return?

Hey Rob   i'm glad to hear the phone is ringing.

Hi Endre - I hope with all of the changes that consumer confidence does return. 


Thanks Lynn and Mary the Ball was just on the net.   I couldn't figure out how to my house inside the bal.

I was looking at my 2.5% variable rate today, wondering how much longer I will enjoy it for.
Hopefully, at least, please, please, another year??? :)
