COVID-19 has affected everyone internationally, but will this eventually impact the housing market in the KW Region?

Why are some mortgage rates rising?
Why are some mortgage rates rising? Fears over the COVID-19 pandemic and falling oil prices have caused mortgage rates to fall to multi-year lows over the past couple of weeks. According to Canadian Mortgage Trends, some lenders are starting to raise rates. Fixed rates on certain terms have been creeping back up, while some of the big banks have been quietly cutting their discounts on the prime rate. A host of other lenders have also been slashing their discounts from prime by anywhere from 20 up to 75 basis points. For those in the market for a new mortgage, and who are leaning towards a variable rate, some experts recommend obtaining a rate hold. Do you have questions about mortgages? I am connected to some of the best Mortgage experts in the business. Call Mike Bolger at (519) 616-2656 for more details. I look forward to your call.

The Trust in Real Estate Services Act was 2019 (TRESA) has officially passed
The Trust in Real Estate Services Act was 2019 (TRESA) has officially passed and the new rules will now reflect today's changing housing market. TRESA is excellent news for realtors, their clients, and Ontarians. This new act will enhance professional standards, create a more fair and efficient business environment, and better protect consumers dealing with those who trade in real estate in Ontario, including realtors. Tim Hudak, OREA CEO, said, "By strengthening consumer protection and fixing the broken real estate discipline system, the Government of Ontario is showing Realtors and home buyers and sellers that it is on their side."
