Are you satisfied with your mortgage ?

Thanks to "good interest rates" and longer amortizations keeping monthly payments low, about 4 out of 5 of us are happy with our mortgage according to a recent poll of 2000 Canadians taken on behalf of CAAMP in late September/early October 2007. In just the last year, over 1/3 of the survey sample indicated they had already taken a longer amortization period than the til then "normal" 25 year period. Nearly 6 out of 10 said that more choice in options made them happy and 28% of respondents confirmed they had used the services of a mortgage professional. Surprisingly, of those who had taken out their mortgage in the last year, 43% of them used a mortgage professional. Respondents in Ontario and Quebec were positive about buying a house at this time.

Make sure you contact a mortgage professional when you are thinking about purchasing or refinancing in order to get the best unbiased advice to create a mortgage plan just for you.

That's all til next time and remember ... your mortgage matters.
