Almost time to lock in your mortgage

Take a look at this graph showing the current and projected interest rates in Canada. If you have any doubt, read some of the recent Bank of Canada's announcements on interest rates. It's almost a sure thing that rates will begin to increase in the middle of 2010 and significantly over the next year after that.

Good long range planning will certainly help you with your future!

This goes against what I have written many times in the past. I've always recommended going short term on your mortgage. Once we come out of this recession and the economy starts to improve, rates will increase and we may never see these low rates again for many decades to come. It could be time to lock in for 5, 7 or even 10 years at the current rates to take advantage of these all time low mortgage interest rates
