There are many different variables when it comes to finding mortgage in Winnipeg. Whether you are taking a fixed mortgage or a variable rate mortgage there are several questions you need to ask yourself to ensure you have the right mortgage for you. Interest rate is of course one of the most important parts of a mortgage, however not the only important part.
You also need to make sure you choose the right length of mortgage term for your needs for the property you are getting mortgage financing on. Are you going to be keeping the property for at least 5 years do you think? If not then it wouldn’t be a wise choice to take a 5 year term because when you break the term you will pay a penalty.
With respect to the prepayment penalty – make sure you know how the penalty is calculated. Is the penalty calculated on 3 months’ interest or interest rate differential or is it a percentage of the outstanding balance? What rate is used to calculate the penalty – contract rate or posted rate? Is paying your mortgage down faster something that is important to you? If so you should make sure you understand what your prepayment privileges are.
