When it comes to securing the best 5 year variable rate in Ontario, consumers tend to focus more on rates rather than choosing a mortgage that combine the best rate and total flexibility.

There are many factors that influence the rate you choose.

Here are a few pointers to keep in mind when discussing your mortgage with your broker or mortgage agent to ensure you have a better understanding right from the start:

  • Is this an effective rate or the actual contract rate?
  • If the proposed mortgage is an effective rate, what are the advantages and disadvantages between the two?
  • Are there any restrictions if I proceed with the proposed mortgage rate?
  • What are the prepayment options?
  • What happens if I decide to sell the property during the term?
  • Can I leave the lender during the term to refinance my mortgage elsewhere?
  • How the lender calculates the penalty?
  • Is the mortgage portable?
  • Is the mortgage assumable?
