Mortgage rates

It’s pretty simple. A mortgage rate is the interest rate you pay on the money you borrow to buy your home Vancity offers 2 types: fixed mortgage rates and Homeprime mortgage (or variable) rates.

A fixed mortgage rate means that the interest rate will stay the same throughout the mortgage term. Let’s say you have a 5-year fixed rate mortgage term. That means you can count on your interest rate staying the same for 5 years. Fixed mortgage rates are great if you want the same, guaranteed rate for your whole term and predictable mortgage payments.

A Homeprime mortgage rate is a variable interest rate that is often lower than the fixed mortgage rate and offers predictable fixed monthly payments. If the variable rate goes down, more of your payment goes toward paying down the principal. You have the option to convert to a fixed mortgage rate if you would like to (terms and conditions apply).
