TransMountain Pipeline - Update

YransMountain Pipeline

An update to the building of the Trans-Mountain Pipeline.On real estate matters, that are now being discussed in Calgary real estate; and has to do with the TransMountain pipeline...And as I did; on a previous Trans-Mountain Pipeline blog. Because there is a legal challenge, to the building of the pipeline before the courts; this project will be a little delayed; but not for long. All levels of government, including the official opposition, are in favor of building the TransMountain pipeline. And means, that with a predictable prevailing of the federal government over the judge that ruled in favor of the plaintiffs; and that in the new year, the Federal government will prevail; and there will be a resurgence in the Calgary real estate market with a predictable upsurge in house price.

Mortgages - Rates

Mortgages - Prime rates - Variable rates

Recent stock market uneasiness with the economy of the United States, points to prosperity; but with high interest rates. This means that although jobs are going to be secure;yet the possibility of the price of goods and services getting increasingly more expensive, is signaling higher interest rates. This means higher mortgage rates. With higher mortgage rates, the home buyer who qualifies to buy a home today, may find it more difficult to qualify, should mortgage interest rates rise higher.

Qualifying for your home purchasing can be done at the lower rates; either via "fixed" rates or "variable" rates. The Variable rate is strongly influenced by the "Prime Interest" rates set by the Bank of Canada.This rate is not expected to increase in the near future; but with the prospect of inflation and higher interest rates looming on the horizon, it is more than a wise decision to not put off house purchasing; but to purchase your home at the...
