Many mortgage professionals and banks claim to offer the lowest mortgages rates but does that mean it is going to be the best mortgage for you?

 

Mortgage professionals and financial institutions love the term "lowest mortgage rates". What they sometimes forget to mention are the penalties that can be associated with getting the lowest mortgage rate. You could be locking in to what is called a “No Frills Mortgage”. This is a type of mortgage which may have very little flexibility. The mortgage could consist of higher penalties for breaking the mortgage, low or no prepayment privileges and it could even have a clause that you must sell your home to get out of the mortgage.

 

As part of Best Mortgage Loans Inc. I work with the most reputable lenders in the industry. It is my top priority to find my clients the lowest mortgage rate while also ensuring they are in a mortgage that fits their financial needs. I am constantly being offered amazing promotions which allow me to get my clients those low rates they are looking for. I do not want to advertise the lowest mortgages rates because that may not always be the case. There may be someone out there that can beat my rates. That said, I assure you that I will fight to get you the lowest mortgage rates I can, with the best terms.

 

The advantage of working with a mortgage broker or mortgage agent as opposed to dealing with a mortgage specialist at a bank is that we deal with multiple lenders. This enables me to the find lenders who can place all types of business such as 1st and 2nd mortgages, private mortgages, refinancing, home equity loans, rental and investment properties, secondary homes and construction loans. I also have access to a great network of mortgage brokers and lenders to handle your commercial mortgage needs. Whether you are a first time home buyer, you are self-employed or new to Canada, these are all areas I specialize in as a mortgage professional.

 

Even though Best Mortgage Loans Inc. is located in Hamilton, ON and a lot of my mortgage business is in the Hamilton area, I service areas all over Canada. As a resident of Hamilton I have established a great network of like-minded business men and women, realtors, home inspectors, appraisers, lawyers etc. These are all individuals I deal with that are an integral part of the mortgage process.

Building construction price indexes, first quarter 2022

National Overview Residential building construction costs increased 5.6% in the first quarter of 2022, the highest increase since the second quarter of 2021. Non-residential building construction costs were up 2.6% in the first quarter. Contractors surveyed attributed part of the growth in building construction costs to the rise in labour costs, and a surge in the number of vacancies for construction trades has contributed to increased wages in these occupations. In addition, amid rising fuel prices, contractors cited that a larger share of their expenses were now allocated to the transportation of their building materials. Increase in price growth for residential building construction Growth in residential building construction costs accelerated during the first quarter of 2022, after moderating in the previous two quarters. The majority of the 11 census metropolitan areas (CMAs) covered by the survey recorded larger quarterly increases than the previous two quarters. Rising residential construction costs were largely driven by rebounding softwood lumber prices. Costs to construct residential buildings increased the most in Calgary (+6.9%), followed by Edmonton and Toronto (both up 6.8%). While the construction costs to build a single-detached house in Toronto grew the most in the first quarter, the cost to build townhouses rose the most of all the buildings in scope for the survey in both Calgary and Edmonton. It is interesting to note that the rise in residential construction costs in Calgary and Edmonton coincided with the highest monthly increases recorded in new housing prices in over 15 years, with Calgary recording its recent high in March 2022 (+5.2%) and Edmonton reaching its recent high in February (+3.7%).

Home sales drop in April as mortgage rates shoot higher

Home sales recorded over Canadian MLS Systems dropped by 12.6% between March and April 2022. The decline placed monthly activity at the lowest level since the summer of 2020. While the national decline was led by the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) simply because of its size, sales were down in 80% of local markets, with most other large markets posting double-digit month-over-month declines in April. The exceptions were Victoria, Montreal and Halifax-Dartmouth where sales edged up slightly. The actual (not seasonally adjusted) number of transactions in April 2022 came in 25.7% below the record for that month set last year. That said, as has been the case since last summer, it was still the third-highest April sales figure ever behind 2021 and 2016. Following a record-breaking couple of years, housing markets in many parts of Canada have cooled off pretty sharply over the last two months, in line with a jump in interest rates and buyer fatigue, said Jill Oudil, Chair of CREA. For buyers, this slowdown could mean more time to consider options in the market. For sellers, it could necessitate a return to more traditional marketing strategies. Of course, there are significant regional differences, so your best bet is to contact your local REALTOR. They have the information, guidance negotiation skills to help you navigate this rapidly-changing market as it evolves, continued Oudil.
