When the overnight rate is increased, it becomes more expensive to borrow money. The increased costs of borrowing money are shifted from the bank onto the consumer by increasing the Prime Rate.

Pre-Approvals are likely to decrease.

Fixed-Rate Mortgages remain the same.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages will increase according to the new Prime Rate minus your discount. (Expect information in the mail).

Static Variable Mortgages payments remain the same but a portion of interest paid to the lender will change.

Reach out with your questions anytime. I can introduce you to a mortgage broker who would be happy to go over your options with you and help you find a mortgage that you're most comfortable with.

It's that time of year again! Happy 1st Day of Fall! Wondering if there's reason to sell at this time of year? Here are 3 reasons why Fall is a GREAT time to sell your home.

1. Have kids? Expect everything to run more efficiently when the kids are in school for the day. It's easy to keep the house prepped for showings throughout the day.

2. Your Home Looks GREAT! Fall colors, feels, and smells help for some great curb appeal.

3. Fewer Sellers. At this time of year, there are fewer homes on the market for sale compared to other months in the year.
