Mortgage Rate: Not the only thing to consider

 

Thinking about Mortgage Rate

Below are two examples that show why rate is not the only thing to consider when choosing a mortgage lender.

$360,000 Scotia Mortgage 1 year into a 5-year term, the clients payout their mortgage and are charged a penalty.
• Mortgage penalty the clients were actually charged $9500
• Penalty the clients would have been charged with a different lender $3200
• Difference $6300

$320,000 BMO mortgage 3 years into a 5-year term the clients went through a divorce and had to sell their home and payout their mortgage.
• Mortgage penalty the clients were actually charged $12,480
• Penalty the clients would have been charged with a different lender $2472
• Difference $10,008

This could happen to you… it is estimated that over 60% of mortgages do not make it full term and face some form of early payment penalty.
