Despite buyers awaiting spring, realtors report robust pent-up demand. While media attention is on Bank of Canada interest rates, certain financial institutions provide competitive rates, such as five-year fixed rates ranging from five to seven percent.

Yochim recommends seeking advice from mortgage professionals for optimal mortgage choices. For more information, feel free to reach out to us.
