Consolidate Your Debt And Leverage Your Increased Real Estate Value With A Refinance!

Jeff Evans

With the recent news that in the past year Greater Vancouver real estate prices had increased by an average of 18% from already very high levels, and historic lows in rates possibly coming to an end soon, the time is a great one for homeowners to refinance their mortgages and reduce their unsecured debt, lower payments and provide themselves extra cash flow to handle life’s expenses and invest.

Refinances (even after the new government mandated changes) still allow homeowners to refinance to 85% of the value of their homes. Further, you can really use the refinance to your advantage by combining your refinance with a Tax Deductible Mortgage Plan (TDMP) tax structure to allow you to pay off your home in about 1/2 the time at no greater expense to you!

I would be happy to take some time to sit with you and discuss your options and the best route for you. As a mortgage broker, I am an advisor that provides value-added service in helping you as a homeowner make the best decision for your individual situation that you will not receive from your bank.

Please contact me if you or your friends and family would like more information.

The latest updates to the B20 mortgage regulations could bring some potentially very disrupting changes to the real estate market, especially if you are wanting to get a mortgage in Vancouver, or you are a mortgage broker in Vancouver.

I am just sending a quick note out to let you know about today's announcement by the Bank of Canada to increase the prime lending rate. The increase is .25% and is applicable to variable and adjustable rate mortgages. If you are one of the people on a fixed rate mortgage, then this will not affect you at this time. If you are on a variable rate, most lenders adjust the payment to reflect the interest rate change. A couple lenders will keep your payment the same but you will be paying less principal and more interest with each payment.Read More

The Greater Vancouver real estate market is getting hit from all angles at the moment.  There is the foreign buyers tax, the empty home property tax and the most recent draconian mortgage lending rule changes.  The foreign buyers tax has been scaled back somewhat to make it more reasonable for those with work permits, but it is still a major deterrent to property speculators looking to park their money.Read More
