What to Consider When Comparing Residential Mortgages

Fixed vs Variable Rates

If you value stability over anything else, then a fixed rate mortgage is the way to go. With this mortgage, an interest rate is set according to the prime rate at the time of origination and won’t change, no matter what the markets do. This allows you to confidently plan your financial future without any surprises.

On the other hand, if you want to take advantage of the lower starting rates, the historic outperformance of variable interest rates, and you are willing to take on some extra risk, a variable rate mortgage is a perfectly good option.

Open or Closed

An open mortgage allows you to finish paying your mortgage ahead of your full term. The benefit of doing so is that you will end up paying much less in interest by finishing off your principle early. Depending on your lender and product, there might be certain limits to by how much you can increase your monthly payments or how big a prepayment you can make.

A closed mortgage effectively locks you in for the full agreed upon term when you purchased the mortgage. Some lenders will still allow you to make prepayments or increase your payments; however, there will almost certainly be a prepayment fee or penalty. On the plus side, closed mortgages usually have lower interest rates.

Down Payment

Recently, the down payment requirements for residential mortgages were changed in order to limit the risk of giving out mortgages to lenders and borrowers. Under new requirements, mortgages for all homes below $500,000 require a minimum 5% down while homes between $500,000 and $1 million require a 5% on the initial $500,000 and then 10% on the amount over that.

That means for a $750,00 loan, you will pay 5% on the first $500,000 = $25,000
+ 10% on the remaining $250,000 = $25,000.

The minimum down payment you will have to make is then $50,000.

The higher down payment you can make (which ranges from 5% to 25%), the lower your interest rate will be. It also equates to a higher equity in your home from the start. This equity can be used as leverage for a line of credit or second mortgage.


You need to carefully consider whether you want to an open or closed mortgage when looking at mortgages with different terms. You can find short-term mortgages from 6 months to 5 years and long-term mortgages from 5 to 25 years.

If you opt for a longer, closed mortgage, you will have the lowest regular payments (even with higher interest rates), but you will be locked into your mortgage until your term is up. Shorter mortgages will have higher payments, but you will pay less interest in total.

Getting a private mortgage was not easy to be honest, but at least with Mr. Leon it was doable. Thank you for your help!

There are a lot of mortgage brokers in toronto to choose from, I was a bit intimidated by that. Don't regret I picked CMB, they took the lead and made sure to cover all the bases

I was renting an apartment for a long time and finally decided to take a big step - get a mortgage instead. Team at certified Mortgage Brokers laid out various options for me. The actual process went smooth and quick, happy with my new home.

Ryder Turcotte

My wife and I decided to refinance our mortgage and started looking for a mortgage broker in Toronto. There were so many options, so you can imagine how overwhelmed we got! After talking to Leon we decided to proceed with Certified, didn't regret that decision once. They always gave useful recommendations, were attentive, and constantly in touch. And most importantly (for us) they helped us to save some money!!

Lucy Zimmerman

Vita was great. Helped my son with all the paperwork and got him very good interest rate. On the closing date called to follow up if everything went fine. Quite a pleasant experience. I would recommend this firm for anyone who is looking a mortgage broker.
