    Variable Open vs Variable Closed rate

    Variable will go up at least 75 bps maybe more .. what’s the rate offered ? p-x? How big is x? Fixed rates high 4% rate these days, likely topped out. Run the math. Variable usually cheaper, on avg. I’d go with a fixed payment even if rate is variable. I’d take a 3 year fixed though then...

    GTA dips vs Vancouver Dips

    We shall see. Not everyone bought at the peak with extremely high leverage. Prices today are still higher than early 2021. Buy to hold for at least 5-10 years and you’ll be ok. Of course the odd pre-sale condo buyer or highly leveraged non-cash flowing investor will get caught naked as the...

    GTA dips vs Vancouver Dips

    Prime rate is, for sure, 75 bps most likely - as previously announced - but all that is already baked into stocks and fixed rate mortgages ! If rate hikes are too steep, too fast, and I’d say they are, AND Ukraine-Russia war lingers, and I’d say that’s highly likely, then rates will NOT go a...

    GTA dips vs Vancouver Dips

    The bottom is near as rates may have already peaked. Covid buying - ie ultra low rates, moving away from urban cores and more space - is over thus far less buying. Many condo projects will get cancelled (due to rising cost but suffer end user prices) thus inventory shortage and higher prices...

    New Condos GTA

    They can be if you buy at values that are at least 15-20% below future anticipated values. They may not as it is unknown what you pay today and what the likely value is in 2-4 years. It’s also unknown if the bank will lend on future value ie if you can close with perhaps only 60-65% of the...

    List Property Online

    Yes you can do that but you must pay commissions to showing realtors (otherwise they will avoid yours) AND you need to be able to accommodate showings AND you need to know basic legal process incl offer process. Or you can use a low commission 1% brokerage. Sent from my iPhone using myREINspace

    VTB Contract Sample

    VTB terms can be as flexible as seller allows but always have to be seen in light of the asset class, purchase price, length, cash down, first mortgage and overall market sentiment. They are quite common in raw to be developed land sales as first mortgages are usually far lower but not that...

    Finding ACRE System Demographics

    Almost any US city is a good buy. Most Canadian cities outside AB or SK is a hold right now I’d say. Values in most BC and ON cities in decline this year AND tough to cash-flow with 70%+ leverage AND rent controlled. I’d say this year and next buy in AB or SK. Wait for bottom to form in BC...

    Everyone Still Choosing Variable?

    Assume variable rates are 1.25% higher by mid to late 2023. Variable rates of P-0.7-0.9% are common today. I’d get that esp if you want to sell before mortgage expiry date. Variable rates are always cheaper than fixed rates, on average. Thomas Beyer, Asset Manager & Improver, Hard Asset...
