5 Things You Didn’t Know About the Canadian Mortgage Market [Infographic]

Each year, the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP) releases a report on the state of the Canadian residential mortgage market. This year the report examined everything from the growing popularity of fixed mortgage rates, to the economic impact of the new mortgage rules. The data is compiled through multiple sources, including an online survey of more than 2,000 participants made up of both homeowners and renters.

Because the report is filled with a wealth of data, it can be overwhelming for the mortgage newbie. And it’s always been a dream of mine to bring the year’s most interesting facts to life. The report was released Monday and, since then, the RateHub team has been working with PushPullLabs, scrambling to make sense of the facts and figures and communicate them in the clearest way possible.

I hope you enjoy and learn a little on the way.

  • Again the ratehub team gets it right bringing timely info to the people in a great fun way. Well done guys. I’ve shared it on my blog…

  • Ian Mackay says:

    Great information Alyssa, keep up the good work.

  • The average Canadian home is 70% paid off (Great stat!). This shows the equity that people have built throughout the years. The new rule changes (although slightly too aggressive in my opinion) will continue to keep our equity portions high for many years to come. Ratehub is doing a great job giving clients an online choice besides just the Big 5 and providing them instant access to some of the Top Mortgage Professionals in the Country. Great work Ratehub and let’s all do our part to help Canadians grow their wealth and achieve financial freedom!

    • RateHub says:

      Thanks Drew. One stat that you isn’t on our infographic is that mortgage broker market share is at 47%, up from 30% because of top quality mortgage brokers such as yourself!

      • Jake says:

        I don’t think broker share is at 47%. That includes mobile brokers from big banks with no access to anything but one line of products (their own). CAAMP’s stats are wrong – the broker market share is in and around the mid 20s to low 30s.
