Record Low Interest
Are record-low mortgage rates tempting you to buy?
Canadians who have held off on buying a house might reconsider now that two major banks have dropped their mortgage rates to record lows.
The Bank of Montreal lowered its benchmark five-year fixed mortgage rate to 2.99 per cent late Thursday — the lowest posted rate from a major bank in Canadian history.
At least one bank followed suit. Toronto-Dominion Bank reduced its posted four-year rate to 2.99 per cent Friday afternoon.
Five-year mortgage rates have fallen overall from a high in 1990 of 14.25 per cent. The highest rate in recent years was in 2007, at 7.54 per cent.
