New Brunswick mortgages: Open, closed, fixed and variable

Open mortgage terms usually range from 6 months to 5 years and can be paid off at any time without a penalty. Open mortgage interest rates are generally higher than closed mortgages because of the flexibility. Closed mortgages feature lower interest rates. Paying off a closed mortgage prior to its maturity without a penalty is not likely, but you can still pre-pay a maximum percentage of your principle each year. The choice between an open or closed mortgage will vary, depending on the financial situation of the borrowers.

Fixed and variable mortgage rates are based on your tolerance for risk and financial stability. Fixed mortgage rates stay consistent throughout the term of the mortgage, whereas variable rates can change over time. The variable rate adjusts with the prime-lending rate. When the prime rate goes up, more of your mortgage payment will be applied to paying off the interest. A variable mortgage rate will also usually start with a lower interest rate.

High Ratio and Conventional Mortgages

If you are thinking about purchasing your home with a down payment between 5 and 19.99 per cent of the property value, you would be purchasing a high ratio mortgage. In this instance, mortgage insurance must be bought to protect the lender in the case of borrower default. A conventional mortgage does not require the purchase of insurance and a down payment of 20 per cent or more of the purchase price is necessary.

Key terms for New Brunswick mortgage rates

  • Pre-payment limitations- Pre-payment limitations are the annual maximum percentage limits that come with a closed mortgage. The limits dictate the amount you are allowed to pay off throughout the year above your regular mortgage payments without incurring a penalty and are often set at around 20 per cent
  • Rate hold period- This is the time over which the broker or lender will guarantee your mortgage rate. In this case, a longer rate hold period is ideal.
  • Amortization period- The amortization period is the duration over which the mortgage will be paid off
  • Credit score- Some brokers and lenders will raise the offered mortgage rates based on a lender's poor credit score.
  • Mortgage timing- You can qualify for a discount on your rate with certain lenders and brokers based on when you secure your rate. Lenders and brokers could potentially offer discounts if you secure your rate within a 30 day period, 90 day period, etc.
