Your first move should be to look into your mortgage options.

When you are ready to sell your home and buy a new one, your first move should be to look into your mortgage options. If you will need a bigger mortgage, your options will include bringing your mortgage with you if it is portable and blending your existing rate with the rates of today or potentially breaking the terms and moving to a new lender.

With interest rates today still hovering at historic lows, you might want to consider breaking your current mortgage and getting a new one for the total amount you need. To break your mortgage, your lender typically has the right to charge a penalty based on the greater of three months’ interest or the interest rate differential (IRD), which is essentially the difference between your old rate and current rates for your remaining term.

Note: Lenders can calculate IRD differently; you should always get the actual penalty from your lender.

“This is the second time I have used Team RRP.  This was my first experience using a mortgage broker and I was not sure what to expect.  Suffice to say the service and attention to detail was unsurpassed, and I vowed to always use Team RRP for future mortgage plans.”

You’ll want to compare your new blend/extend rate with the rate you’d get with a new mortgage.

Of course, the exact terms and conditions of your current mortgage need to be examined closely to determine if there are other factors to consider. Call one of our Mortgage Consultants now at 604.879.2772 to discuss your specific mortgage situation.
