Bank of Canada Announces Welcome Rate Cut - What It Means for You

The Bank of Canada has reduced the overnight rate to 4.75%, signaling a shift towards less restrictive monetary policy. This adjustment, paired with ongoing balance sheet normalization, is poised to influence both current and prospective homeowners significantly.

Current Economic Overview:

As we navigate through 2024, global economies are showing mixed signs of growth and stability. While the United States is experiencing a slower-than-expected expansion, Europe and China are witnessing a pickup in economic activities. Back home, after a brief stagnation, Canada's economy is back on a growth trajectory, albeit at a modest pace of 1.7% in the first quarter, underpinned by strong consumption and business investment.

Impact on Your Mortgage:

This rate cut is pivotal for variable-rate mortgage holders, potentially lowering the interest costs associated with these loans. With lenders expected to adjust their prime lending rates to 6.95%, now is an excellent time to review your mortgage strategy. Whether you're considering buying, refinancing, or renewing, the changing rates could impact your decisions and financial planning.

Looking Ahead:

The Bank's latest move reflects increased confidence that inflation will continue its descent toward the 2% target. However, with the economic landscape still presenting various risks, especially in terms of inflation dynamics, wage growth, and international developments, staying informed and proactive is more crucial than ever.

Mortgage Pre-Approval vs. Pre-Qualification

Are You Looking to Buy Your First Home?

Are You Thinking About Making a Move?

No matter your goals, there are several steps you can take in advance to streamline the mortgage process and make it more manageable!

Getting Pre-Qualified

The purpose of mortgage pre-qualification is to help you understand what you can afford when shopping for a new home. Pre-qualification involves assessing your financial status, which allows you to establish a budget and determine your potential monthly payments.

By downloading my app, you can get pre-qualified in under 60 seconds! This tool will also provide you with an estimate of your monthly mortgage payments and help you compare various payment schedules.

Getting Pre-Approved

While pre-qualification gives you a general idea of your affordability, pre-approval is a step further. Pre-approval means that a lender has officially stated (in writing) that you qualify for a mortgage and specified the amount based on your submitted income and credit history documentation.

A pre-approval typically includes details such as term, interest rate, and mortgage amount, and is valid for a brief period, assuming all conditions are met.

Benefits of Pre-Approval

  • Confirms Your Budget: It confirms the maximum amount you can afford.

  • Locks in Interest Rates: It can secure an interest rate for 90-120 days while you shop for your new home.

  • Strengthens Your Offer: It assures sellers that securing financing won't be an issue, which is crucial in competitive markets with multiple offers.

Important Considerations Post-Pre-Approval

Once you obtain pre-approval, it's crucial to maintain your financial and employment status until the mortgage application and sale are complete. Avoid making changes such as quitting or changing jobs, buying a new car, transferring large sums of money between bank accounts, leaving bills unpaid, or opening new credit cards. Any changes could jeopardize your pre-approval status.

By taking these steps, you'll be better prepared and positioned for a smooth and successful home-buying experience.
