Canadians are locking into Fixed Rate Mortgages (Part 2)

New homeowners looking for greater predictability


A recent poll conducted by Nielsen finds that Canadians are increasingly focused on moving to fixed-rate mortgages.


The poll also revealed that younger Canadians are even more likely to choose a fixed rate mortgage, with 56% of Canadians aged 25-34 saying they would lock in to a fixed rate today; the number has been steadily increasing over the last four years. In contrast, more established homeowners (aged 45-54) were among those less likely to lean towards a fixed rate (43%).


For Canadians who have recently taken out a mortgage, have additional expenses, or are still holding debt, the predictability of a fixed mortgage rate may be appealing.


According to the survey, many Canadians still prefer fixed mortgage rates over VRM (Variable Rate Mortgages). Homeowners at any stage in life should consider their tolerance for fluctuating rates when choosing between a fixed or variable mortgage rate.

I want to express my gratitude for all the work that you have done for me over the last few months. I would like to say thank you for listening, understanding my needs, your patience, and promptness in getting things done. Before our meeting, I was ready to give up and walk away from everything, but you managed to calm me down and set up a plan that would work for me. It was very easy to work with you, everything was made clear and easy to follow, today I’m a new person because a lot of stress has been lifted off and I can function. Thank you again for your professional support, excellent work, and always going the extra mile

I have had the opportunity to have Daniel Char address my personal banking needs. I was impressed with his communication skills, professionalism and follow-through with any of my requests and concerns. The service that he provided to myself was exceptional and I would recommend Daniel to both present and future clients.
