Possible Mortgage Rate Increase from these 112.7 year lows?

We are able to watch some indicators that drive mortgage interest rates. This is how we can guess what rates are going to do over a 10 day or so period.

Right now the spread on Canadian 5 year mortgage bond is 1.795%. This is WELL BELOW the comfort zone of 1.90% and 2.10%.  Can we potentially see a rise in interest rates?

Hard to say as the spread has be bouncing all over the last few days, but it could trigger a small rise in rates if it does not bounce back soon.

What does this mean?

  • If you are going to buy a home, or are planning on moving up or
  • have a mortgage that is up for renewal in less than 120 days from now, or know someone who does, then
  • CALL for a rate hold at today’s super low rates ASAP. We answer the phone from 9 am to 10 pm every way, holidays and weekends included.
