Beware of some low rate specials
April 25, 2014 | Posted by: Laking Financial
It might sound great to hear from your bank advising they have a great, low rate mortgage special just for you. Maybe even as low as 2.99% for 5 years. However, make sure you read the fine print as well as ask lots of questions. Are you able to refinance without a crazy penalty? Are you able to pay extra on your mortgage balance? Are you completely locked in unless you sell your house?? This might sound crazy but many of these offers from the "Big 5 Banks" typically have those conditions. This is another great reason why you should choose a mortgage broker as your first choice for mortgage financing. We will find you the lowest rate available while making sure you have all the flexibility you need. It's not all about rate, it's about customizing the mortgage for your needs.
