My family relocated to Grande Prairie back in 1999, a city known for offering fresh opportunities to newcomers, a narrative that resonates with countless families who have made this move. Following my graduation in 2005, I embarked on my full-time career journey during a time when one had the liberty to choose from a wide array of trades or consider employment with various oilfield companies. I dabbled in a few different fields initially, eventually finding my niche as a Journeyman Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Mechanic. In this profession, I discovered immense satisfaction in being a service technician, delving into problem-solving, perpetually acquiring knowledge about cutting-edge equipment, and fostering connections with like-minded individuals for nearly a decade. My dedication and proficiency led me to a significant milestone: a promotion to the role of field supervisor, an enriching personal experience. However, over time, I realized that this position wasn't my long-term aspiration. I sought the autonomy of self-employment, a path aligned with helping clients directly and solving financial puzzles. I committed myself to becoming a licensed mortgage associate, pursuing courses during evenings and weekends while maintaining my role as a tradesman. Fortuitously, I crossed paths with a supportive team at The Mortgage Group Grande Prairie who were willing to take a chance on me, and from that moment forward, I never looked back. The aspiration of homeownership is one shared by many of us. After all, we all need a place to call our own. Let me guide you in realizing this dream, whether it's today or a carefully planned goal for tomorrow. Sincerely, Jon Giguere Journeyman Mortgage Broker

Types of Mortgages

Opting for a fixed-rate mortgage provides you with the reassurance of locking in your interest rate throughout the mortgage term. This means you have a clear understanding of the exact amount you'll pay in both principal and interest during this period. Fixed-rate mortgage terms typically span from 6 months to 10 years.

Furthermore, fixed-rate mortgages often offer the flexibility of making pre-payments, which can range from 10% to 25% of the original mortgage balance annually, contingent on the specific lender's terms. However, it's important to note that should you decide to pay off your mortgage in its entirety before the term concludes, you may incur a penalty. This penalty can be calculated in one of two ways: either as three months of simple interest or through an Interest Rate Differential (IRD) calculation.

The significant advantage of selecting a fixed-rate mortgage is that it typically boasts a lower interest rate compared to an open mortgage. This makes it an attractive choice, especially if you don't anticipate making full pre-payments during your chosen term.

In essence, a fixed-rate mortgage empowers you with stability, predictability, and cost-effectiveness, making it a favored option for those who intend to maintain their mortgage obligations as agreed throughout the selected term.

A variable-rate mortgage offers you the opportunity to benefit from the current low Prime Rate. Typically, variable-rate mortgage products are established at rates lower than the prime rate, with term options spanning from 1 to 5 years.

The uniqueness of variable-rate mortgages lies in the flexibility of payment structures, which vary based on the specific product or lender you select. In certain instances, you have the option to secure fixed payments for a duration of up to 5 years, while the interest rate will adapt in response to fluctuations in the Bank Prime Rate.

Alternatively, with some variable-rate mortgage agreements, your monthly payments will adjust in direct correlation to the frequency of changes in the Prime Rate during your chosen term. This dynamic feature provides both advantages and considerations, depending on your financial objectives and risk tolerance.

An open mortgage allows you the flexibility to pay off some or the entire mortgage at any time, without penalty. Interest rates are usually higher and are tied to the Bank's Prime Rate.

A secured line of credit lets you tap into your home's equity whenever you want. The interest rates are linked to the prime rate, typically a bit higher. You only need to pay interest on what you owe, which can be helpful for managing your cash flow. This type of credit usually has lower interest rates compared to an unsecured line of credit. If you have good equity in your home, you can have both a secured line of credit and a mortgage.
