A recent Bank of Montreal study says that variable rate mortgages have worked out to be better than fixed rate mortgages 83% of the time since 1975. I believe we are now entering a time when fixed rates will out perform variable rates and here is why…
The discounts on variable rate mortgages has been reduced significantly over the past month. For the past couple years, Canadians have leaned very heavily towards variable rate mortgages due to the Bank of Canada holding the prime lending rate at record lows and five year variable mortgages being offered at rates as low as prime minus 0.85% equal to 2.15%. With the latest financial worries across the world, lenders have raised variable rates. It is now difficult to find better than prime minus 0.20% or 2.80% and this still seems to be rising.
Traditionally the five year fixed rate mortgage would be 1% to 2% higher than the five year variable rate, depending on the prevailing yield curve. The yield curve shows the difference between short term rates and longer term rates. Today you can get a variable rate mortgage for 2.80% and a five year fixed at 3.29% per cent that is just a 0.49% premium. That is a steal on a historical basis.
Now factor in the fact that today’s prime rate is among the lowest in history at 3.00% as set by the bank of Canada and all economic analysts believe rates will be higher over the next 2-3 years. With only a 0.49% premium on the fixed rate today for the benefit of having a locked in rate for five years, now might be the time to lock in!
If you are a first time home buyer or simply looking to get pre-approved but don’t know which product is right for you, our team can help you weigh your options and discuss all the risks to fixed vs variable rate products.
