Bank of Canada drops Prime Rate .5%

The Bank of Canada dropped the prime rate today by 1/2% to .5% from 1%.

The major lenders followed suit and reduced their bank rates from 3% to 2.5% which means that variable rate mortgages instantly fall and most likely the major banks will be dropping short and long term mortgage rates over the next few days

Other news, the price of gold per ounce in USD was $913 today, down from just over USD1000 a week ago

This is the time to purchase real estate if you want a great mortgage rate

All the best
