The real estate market in Atlantic Canada

The housing market in Atlantic Canada is exploding in a whirlwind of demand, largely due to the effects the coronavirus pandemic has had on the buyer's intent to find more space and living comfort, including increased out-of-province interest. Low inventory, a previously undervalued market compared to larger Canadian centres, plus historically low interest rates are helping the push, and experts expect this current trend to remain on course for the next few months.

Calculating mortgage rates in Atlantic Canada

While certain regulations are standard across Canada, rates can vary based on location. You must qualify for your mortgage rate, and factors like personal credit and equity in a current home can impact the rates offered.

The rate will also vary depending on the purpose of the mortgage. Rates are higher on a property that you do not plan to live in personally. As a result, the lowest advertised rates on the internet may not be available to everyone. We will work closely with you to analyze your financial situation and determine which products are most suitable for you. We can also tell you what range of mortgage rates you should expect.

If you’re just starting your research, check out our online tools, such as our mortgage calculators, or contact us and we can help outline the details for you.

What mortgage insurance is available?

To purchase a home in Canada you must have a minimum down payment of 5%, and the maximum loan term is 25 years.

If you buy a home with a down payment of less than 20%, you are required to purchase mortgage default insurance.

Mortgage default insurance, also referred to as CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation), protects lenders from a consumer defaulting on their loan. This insurance allows lenders to offer lower mortgage rates and down payment requirements.

The premiums for this insurance are an added cost to you, and the amount is calculated based on a percentage of the total mortgage amount.

While CMHC is the most commonly known mortgage insurance provider, you can also find insurance through Canada Guaranty or Sagen Financial.

Mortgage rates in Atlantic Canada

There are two different types of mortgage rates: variable and fixed. The interest on fixed-rate mortgages is set when the loan is initiated and will not change, while the interest on variable-rate mortgages may go up and down, depending on benchmark rate movement.

How we partner with clients and lenders

Finding a mortgage on your own can be difficult. There are an overwhelming number of options to choose from and many online tools can be misleading or lack important information. We can help.

At True North Mortgage, our brokers are dedicated to going above and beyond to help you secure the best possible mortgage rate and product for your situation.

In fact, we're confident that we can find you the best rate regardless of whether you are purchasing, renewing, or refinancing — thanks to the strong relationships we have built with our lenders throughout the years.

Our mortgage specialists work hard to understand your specific financial situation and goals, which will allow us to match you to the right lender.

We know that buying a home is so much more than just getting the best rate. We're also here to help take the stress of our completing your mortgage. From beginning to end — we've got this.
