New Mortgage Rules starting January 2018

New Mortgage Rules starting Jan. 2018

Starting January 1st, 2018 all mortgages will be required to qualify at the posted 5 year rate, or at this time approximately 4.89%. Currently mortgages with 20% or more can qualify at the regular 5 year rate of approximately 3%. The difference can reduce mortgage amounts by approximately 20%.

If you are interested in buying and have not been pre-approved for the new stress test, now might be the time to do so to find out, what the difference would be for you and if you should make a move before the deadline at the end of this year.

Below is a link to the government's website detailing the changes. Feel free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns!
