Current Toronto Mortgage Rate News

Best Toronto Mortgage Rates:

Mortgage rates in Toronto are expected to remain at relatively low levels for the rest of the year. Variable rates, which are driven by the Bank of Canada’s overnight rate, are likely to stay low until the first quarter of 2014. This should keep discounted 5-year variable rates below 3.00% (Prime - 0.0%), where they have been since the last quarter of 2009. Increased lender competition has resulted in the best mortgage rates Toronto has ever seen.

Toronto Information:

Toronto, Canada’s largest city, has a population of over 2.6 million people and is the fifth most populous city in North America. The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) supports more than 6 million citizens. Toronto is regarded as one of the most diverse cities in the world, with half its population born outside of Canada. The Cities of Opportunity report by PricewaterhouseCoopers ranked Toronto as the second-best city for business, life and innovation. [1] According to Statistics Canada, the median total income in Toronto is $66,790. The Toronto Disctrict School Board (TDSB) is the largest board in Canada with nearly 600 schools and over 250,000 students. Some of the best schools in Toronto include Deer Park Junior and Senior Public School and Hillmount Public School.

The Toronto Housing Market:

The heated housing market in Toronto has been the subject of much debate, as some industry insiders feel that Toronto housing prices are due for a correction while others feel the market will continue to plug away. Thus far, sales and home prices in 2012 have exceeded their 2011 levels (year-over-year). This is a notable trend because in 2011 Toronto had the second best year of sales on record. Roughly 5.3% of homes sold in Toronto in 2011 were above the million dollar mark, setting a new record.

We’ve seen the mortgage rates in Toronto reach record low levels over the past few months; which has been a major contributor to the city’s housing boom.

Toronto Mortgage Brokers:

Locating a mortgage broker in Toronto who understands the local housing and mortgage market can be beneficial if you’re looking to purchase a property in the GTA. They can handle the rate negotiations for you to ensure you receive the lowest mortgage rates in Toronto.

Toronto Home Inspectors:

It's a good idea to find a home inspector in Toronto before you even make an offer on a home. Since it's not uncommon to see bidding wars in Toronto, having a home inspector's name and phone number ready means you can remove your successful home inspection condition that much sooner.

Toronto Real Estate Laywers:

Buying a home is not only a large financial transaction, there are a lot of legalities involved. A Toronto real estate lawyer will review all of your documents, do a search on the title of your home, register the title in your name and make sure all of your Toronto closing costs are paid.
