August 7th Mortgage Industry Update

August 7th, 2014 Mortgage Industry Update

Interest rates slightly decreased with a few major lenders as promotional rates declined from 2.99% (5Y fixed) to 2.94%. Often we see a domino effect when it comes to lenders changing rates as they feel the need to remain competitive in the mortgage market. This may serve as a reason for a possible small interest rate decline between some lenders for the month of August.

Additionally this week:
– Almost 40 per cent of Canadian buyers benefit from mortgage insurance, according to Genworth. [fancy_link link_text=”Learn More” url=”http://royallepageleadingedge.ca/2014/08/07/genworth-helping-your-clients-buy-homes/” float=”none”].
