Scotiabank mortgage rates overview

Scotiabank has a variety of specialty mortgage products beyond the standard fixed and variable mortgages, which are discussed in further detail below.

Scotiabank's Save Now, Save Later Mortgage is a limited time offer of locking in a competitive mortgage rate now and saving later with a guaranteed rate discount.

The Long and Short Mortgage allows you to take advantage of low interest rates in the short term while protecting against interest rate increases over the long term. Under the Scotia Total Equity Plan, the Long and Short Mortgage offers a split of the mortgage with one part of the amount reset every month as Scotiabank Prime Rate changes, and one part of the amount at a fixed rate for the full term chosen.

The Secondary Home Financing Program is available if you are looking for a getaway or a second home to call your own.

The Scotia Mortgage for Self-Employed serves the unique needs of self-proprietors.

Finally, Scotiabank offers its StartRight Mortgage Program to temporary residents and permanent residents new to Canada, which is a program specially designed to meet the mortgage needs of obtaining a first home in Canada.

Scotiabank's Total Equity Plan converts your mortgage into a valuable asset, one that can give you more control over your borrowing, now and in the future, and potentially save you hundreds of dollars each year. You can pay for your children's education, buy a new car, renovate, buy a second home or vacation property, or help run your small business. Whatever you decide, this plan allows you to borrow up to 80% of the value of your home.

Scotiabank has a variety of online resources to help you find a mortgage solution that suits your needs, such as articles, podcasts, solicitor forms, and even a custom mortgage iPhone app. These resources can be used in addition to RateHub.ca's learning centre which guides you to obtain the best mortgage interest rate.
