This weekend I attended the national conference for the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals in Montreal and was honoured to receive their inaugural Financial Literacy Leader of the Year award. It was fun to catch up with old friends and to have the chance to thank people who have helped me throughout my career as a mortgage professional.
Five-year Government of Canada bond yields were flat for the week, closing at 1.51% once again on Friday. Five-year fixed-rate mortgages remain in the 2.79% to 2.89% range, and five-year fixed-rate pre-approvals are offered at 2.99%.
Five-year variable-rate mortgages are available in the prime minus 0.65% to prime minus 0.80% range, depending on the terms and conditions that are important to you.
