The Great Renewal

Remember the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when everyone seemed to be buying a home? From 2019 to 2021, record-low interest rates and a shortage of home supply caused many Canadians to jump into the housing market. Now?

60% of Canadian households will be up for renewal by 2026. As a result, a great wave of renewals is coming up — and with it, a great wave of payment shocks due to higher mortgage rates

How to Switch Your Mortgage At Renewal

The best time to start looking is 4 months before your current term ends. Why then? 
Most lenders will let you renew 90 to 120 days early, without making you pay any prepayment penalties.

Renewal Date

Plan Ahead
Your existing mortgage lender will likely send you a renewal offer about 6 months before your renewal date. Why 6 months? There’s no competition yet for them. Don’t sign it yet.

The renewal offer will outline what your lender is offering you as a new interest rate & terms. On your end, make sure you understand the conditions of your current loan & your overall financial situation.

Shop Around
120 days before your renewal date is when the most savvy mortgage borrowers start shopping around. Lock in the best rate you can find, but don’t actually close on it yet, unless you have to. Seek expert advice from mortgage professionals who can help guide you through the process. They can find both the best rate but also best mortgage product for you. Historically a 5-year term has been most popular, but choosing one to three years could provide more flexibility as the market changes.

Commit
30-45 days from your renewal date is a great time to have your mortgage signed. The rates may have come down from when you locked in your rate, so you can take advantage of the lower rate. Switching lenders can take up to 30 days or more, making it important to leave enough time. If you decide to renew with a new lender, you must go through the application process again, similar to when you applied for your initial mortgage.
