RATE TYPES

More than a Number

The Bank of Canada’s Prime Rate influences variable and adjustable interest rates. The Prime Rate is reviewed eight times per calendar year, at which point the bank may choose to lower, raise, or keep the pace the same.

More Than A Number

A fixed-rate mortgage is where the interest rate remains the same throughout the term of the loan. Your mortgage payment will be fixed and will not change over the loan term, typically 5 years.

Fixed-rate mortgages are popular among homebuyers because they offer stability and predictability. With a fixed-rate mortgage, you can budget your monthly expenses more accurately, as you know exactly how much you will be paying toward your mortgage.

One of the drawbacks of a fixed-rate mortgage is that the interest rate is typically higher than the initial interest rate of a variable/adjustable-rate mortgage. However, with a variable, the interest rate can fluctuate over the loan term, making it harder to budget your monthly expenses.

The terms “variable mortgage rate” and “adjustable mortgage rate” are often used interchangeably. The rate is typically based on the prime rate set by the Bank of Canada or the lender’s prime rate, but they differ. 

Here is the difference:

Adjustable Mortgage Rate: 

An adjustable mortgage rate, also known as an (ARM), is a mortgage interest rate that can change over the term. The interest rate can increase or decrease based on changes in the prime rate, affecting your mortgage payment. This means your monthly mortgage payment can increase or decrease depending on the fluctuations in interest.

(ARM, changes impact the mortgage payment directly).

Variable Mortgage Rate: 

A variable mortgage rate, also known as a (VRM), is a mortgage interest rate that can change over the term based on changes in the prime rate, affecting your mortgage amortization. This means your mortgage amortization, the total length to which your mortgage is paid, can increase or decrease depending n the fluctuation in interest.

(VRM, changes impact the amortization).

These rates have many benefits over a Fixed Interest Rate, particularly the Adjustable Mortgage Rate.
