Time to Get Creative with Mortgages

With rates on the rise, it's time to get creative with mortgages.  We've been conditioned to think that the only options are a Variable mortgage or a 5 year Fixed...but there's more.

What happens if you lock in for 5 years & in 3 years time, rates are dropping again, leaving you with higher costs & a mortgage no Buyer would assume?  Of course that means putting some thought into what might happen over the next few years & assessing your risk tolerance.

Good information again in the Globe and Mail from Robert McLister that is worth a read.  3 economists weigh in
