Information about Saskatchewan Mortgages

With its mix of culture and natural beauty, it is no surprise that owning a home in Saskatchewan would make many Canadians very happy. Homes in Saskatchewan, like most other provinces in Canada, tend to appreciate in value over time and most often require a mortgage to finance the purchase. The reason for obtaining a mortgage is to cover the difference between the property value and the amount of your down payment. You can also take out additional equity out of your home to pay off debts or do some renovations. See our article: Information For First Time Home Buyers In Canada: A Guide, Tips to pay off your mortgage sooner and New mortgage rules for Canada's housing market.

A mortgage rate is the interest rate charged on a mortgage loan. For each mortgage payment that you make, part of it goes to cover the mortgage principal to reduce your balance, while the rest is applied toward the accumulating interest.

Mortgage loans in Saskatchewan

There are a few important factors to consider, aside from low interest rates, when looking for your ideal mortgage:

  • Rate hold period- This is the period over which you are guaranteed your mortgage rate by your lender. Generally speaking, a longer rate hold period is perceived as more beneficial due to the fact that it provides longer protection from rate increases.
  • Amortization period- The length of the period is usually chosen depending on your own personal circumstances. The amortization period will outline the period of time over which the mortgage loan will be repaid. Amortization periods options can vary across different lenders.
  • Pre-payment limitations (for closed mortgages)- Closed mortgages give you the flexibility to increase monthly payments by a certain percentage or make lump sum payments up to a capped percentage of the total mortgage amount. As the percentages of the pre-payment limitations increase, so does your flexibility.

Other occurrences affecting the lowest mortgage in Saskatchewan

While using our mortgage comparison tool, you will notice that the quoted rates will vary among various brokers and lenders, as well as mortgage products. Certain lenders take additional factors into account when setting rates that are worth knowing about.

  • Credit score- Your credit score might affect the mortgage rate, depending on the lender. For instance, a lender might offer a higher rate to someone with a poor credit history.
  • Mortgage timing- Sometimes lenders will offer discounts to customers based on obtaining a mortgage within a certain time period (within 30 days, etc.)

Knowledge about factors that influence your best rate possible (this sentence doesn't make sense). With that said, it is equally important to be completely transparent and honest with the information provided to the lenders to guarantee a successful approval process.

Fixed, Variable, Closed and Open Mortgages- What type do you need?

When buying a home you are faced with the option of a fixed rate or variable rate mortgage. A variable mortgage rate will fluctuate with the prime-lending rate throughout the duration of the mortgage term. Alternatively, a fixed mortgage rate will stay constant for the duration of your mortgage term. Your choice between the two will most likely depend on the current level of mortgage rates, your appetite for risk and the changes in mortgage rates that are expected to occur.

The other option you are faced with is to choose between an open or a closed mortgage. In an open mortgage, you are free to make lump sum payments and increase your monthly payments with no limit. Fortunately, you can still retain some of this flexibility with a closed mortgage. However, monthly payment increases are restricted to a percentage maximum and lump sum payments are restricted by a percentage of your mortgage amount in a giver year. If you surpass the maximum percentages in a closed mortgage, you are likely to incur penalties. The choice between an open or a closed mortgage will depend on your cash flow and repayment plans. An open mortgage is generally acquired when the customer is certain about pre-payment instances and is planning to make future prepayments beyond the allowable limits in a closed mortgage.

Conventional and High Ratio Mortgages in Saskatchewan

The difference between high ratio and conventional mortgages in Saskatchewan is dictated solely by the amount of your down payment. If your down payment is less than 20 percent of the total property value, you will be required to go with a high ratio mortgage. A high ratio mortgage would require you to get mortgage default insurance to protect the lender from borrowers default and is usually acquired at 1.75 - 2.75 percent of the mortgage amount.
