Interest rate increases looming for borrowers

nolanHeading into the home stretch of 2014 and toward 2015 is an opportune time to review or create a mortgage plan.

A mortgage plan — whether you're buying a home, already in one, or planning on purchasing revenue properties in the next few years — is vital to you and your family's overall financial health.

The last several years have been unique as a result of the 2.99 per cent mortgage craze. Banks have been highly competitive, lowering fixed rates to historical lows in an attempt to gain market share.

And in today's low-interest-rate environment, it's not a question as to whether rates are going to increase, but when. Borrowers need to position themselves in a way they can absorb higher interest rates and/or be able to still pay off their mortgages faster.
