..... and we will explain the difference to you. You have probably noticed on the internet that there seem to be some very low mortgage rates that are referred to as "limited rates" - we offer some of these as well.
However although many of these rates seem to have a low "price", the long term "costs" to clients for choosing them can sometimes be quite high. Lets look at an example:
Some of the variable rate limited term mortgage options can be about 0.1% to 0.2% less than the best discounted market rates. Over the course of a five year term on a $300 000 mortgage this can save between $1500 and $3000 in interest. However the small print on these limited mortgages can include items such as offering no or limited portability and also sometimes having a pay out penalty of 2.75% of your mortgage amount instead of the standard three months of interest penalty that most variable mortgages offer.
We have many clients who choose to revise their mortgage or sell their home and move within their five year term. With this limited mortgage your pay out penalty would be a very steep $8250 versus the industry standard of three months of interest which is $1575 for a difference of $6675.
In summary, on the surface the lower price can save you $1500 in interest however the true cost to you could be an additional $6675 for a total loss to you of over $5000.
When we consult with our clients on their mortgage needs and goals this is a small example of the value that we offer to you that in many cases other online mortgage solutions might not. We want to ensure that we have the best pairing of both price and cost for you to save you money.
