50/50 Wise Mortgage: Hybrid mortgages (those that are part fixed and part variable) are something most people don’t think much about.
Maybe more should…especially in this low-rate environment where going 100% variable is not as easy a decision as it used to be.
There are experts out there who also think hybrids are a great idea. Dr. Moshe Milevsky, Canada’s most quoted mortgage researcher, has told us in the past that “People should strongly consider mortgages that are part fixed and part floating.”
The reasons are two-fold: 1) Virtually no one can predict interest rates long-term; and, 2) Hybrid mortgages offer interest rate diversification—which can reduce risk.
You have half your mortgage on a fixed rate, and the other on a variable rate. What is so great about this is, you can buy down the fixed portion, which will overall reduce your average total rate! This is a great solution for many personnel in the Canadian Forces and DND. For more information on how the 50/50 Wise mortgage works, please e-mail or give one of our agents a call.
Mortgage Protection Plans: Who needs this? The answer is simple.. everyone! If your mortgage is not protected, you will lose your home if a key breadwinner dies or becomes disabled. Not every family has enough liquid assets to cover the mortgage obligation in the event of a death or disability. This can result in losing your house and/or being forced to sell.
Mortgage Protection Plans have been protecting Canadian mortgage borrowers since 1995. It is the largest independent plan of its kind, protecting over 150,000 clients. It is insured by Manulife Financial and administered by Benesure Canada Inc. They offer protection to ANYONE between the ages of 18 and 65, regardless of your health. Instant response, competitive premium rates and disability coverage that ranks as one of the highest in the country! Along with a 60 day money back guarantee, there is no reason why Canadians should turn this down. For more information:
