New mortgage rules are coming soon


Blog by Jean Richer - Salesperson | October 4th, 2016


If you've been shopping for a home, you probably heard about the latest news from the government. The rules to qualify for your new mortgage have changed. These new rules will be effective on October 17th




If you are borderline approved this will certainly affect you! If you are buying a home with less than 20% you will now have to qualify at the "benchmark rate" of 4.64%. The great news is that you still get the lower rate, but it is the qualification that might be more of a challenge.
