Best 5 Year Fixed Rate is 3.39%
The best 5 year fixed rate mortgage is 3.39%. As of publishing this rate is still available. As you can see from the rate comparison above all other lenders are in the 3.59%-3.99% so if you are purchasing or renewing your mortgage within the next 90-120 days and want a 3.39% five year fixed I’m make arrangements to get pre-approved sooner rather than later.
Best 5 Year Variable Rate is 2.50%
The best 5 year variable rate is Prime minus .50%. Variable rates are now coming back into favour since fixed rates have increased. As long as you can qualify using the Benchmark Qualifying Rate this is a good option. My suggestion to those that want a Variable rate mortgage is to set their payments to match the five year fixed rate and you will not only pay off your mortgage faster but also cushion yourself from any Bank of Canada rate increases.
