Lethbridge Real Estate - Mortgage Rates

Real Estate Sales Representative with Robert W May - Lethbridge Real Estate

Just taking a quick look at the interest rates available out there today.  My current best available rate for a 5 year fixed rate mortgage is 3.49%   Of course this rate is dependant upon strong credit and income and for the purchase of typical residential real estate.


I also have several mortgage products available ranging from 3.59% to 3.99% which cover everyone who simply does not fit into the traditional mortgage products.  If you are self employed, a business owner, a farmer, looking for rental property, etc then this sort of product might be right for you.


Either way, the inventory of homes available is high and the interest rates are low.  That makes it a fine time to do a refinance of your existing home or consider adding investment real estate to your strategy.


Here are some figures from the Bank of Canada.
