Why Lowest Isn't Always Best

Scotiabank Offers Mortgages With a Full Suite of Features to Help Customers Get Mortgage-free Faster at Special Rates

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 26, 2014) - Until June 7, Scotiabank is offering the following special rates on full feature residential mortgages*:

  • Fixed rate: 2.97% for a 5 year term
  • Variable rate: 2.47% for a 5 year term

"Most low-rate mortgages come with restrictions that lock you in with fine print that can keep you in your mortgage longer than you'd like, or be expensive if you need to change things. Life doesn't happen in five-year increments," says David Stafford, Scotiabank's Managing Director of Real Estate Secured Lending. "The most expensive aspect of a new mortgage in this market is time, not rate, and you need the flexibility to increase payments or make extra payments to put these rates to work for you, shorten your mortgage, and save thousands in interest costs in the process."

When considering mortgage options, take a closer look at not just the mortgage rate but also at the features and flexibility. With the right advice and mortgage, you can own a home not a mortgage sooner than you thought.
