Best 5 Year Fixed Rate is 3.19%
The best 5 year fixed rate mortgage is 3.19%. This is the RMG Low Rate Basic Mortgage. The RMG Low Rate Basic mortgage would suit a home buyer that wants a low 5 year fixed rate mortgage rate and they expect to be staying in the same home for the entire term. It comes with 20/20 pre-payment privileges and is also portable.
What’s the catch you might be asking? I always like to warn people how the RMG Low Rate Basic penalty is calculated. The penalty to break the RMG low rate mortgage is also the greater of the interest rate differential (IRD) or 3% of the outstanding balance. When choosing this type of mortgage make sure you fully understand the terms and conditions of the mortgage. While you may be saving a few hundred dollars over the course of your 5 year term if you were to break this mortgage early the penalty can be substantially higher than another lenders offering.Get Today’s Rate
