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...

Buying New homes

New home buying - Calgary

The recent receivership proceedings re Reid Homebuilders, calls attention to the "Buyer Beware" option. It is the fault of the new home buyer that he is not aware of the risks associated with the purchase of a new home. And even though those risks are clearly included in the contract signed between the new home buyer and the homebuilder sales person, Yet it is entirely the responsibility of the new home buyer to read the legal resposibilites that are the buyer's and the legal duties of the home builder to the new home buyer. The contract is many pages long and written on 8.5" x 14" length, bond paper, and written in pristine legal language. It is recommended that new home buyers take a real estate Agent with them when they go to buy a new home. The sales person on the other side of the counter from you, is an employee of the New Home Builder's company. They don't owe you a fiduciary relationship; your real estate Agent does. And your real estate Agent, is your "Buyer Beware" protection...And...
