Monday Morning Interest Rate Update for July 27, 2020

by David Larock

I am off communing with nature on a summer break.

My next Monday Morning Interest Rate Update will be published on August 10. In the meantime, here are some of my recent posts that may be of interest (pun intended):

  • This post provides links that will be useful to anyone who is actively looking to purchase a property.
  • This post offers my take on the Bank of Canada’s latest policy-rate announcement and its surprising reassurances that mortgage rates will stay low for years to come.
  • This post outlines a step-by-step process that existing fixed-rate borrowers can use to determine whether they can save money by refinancing.

My assistant, Melanie Haggerty, will be available in my absence, and I will update the rate table below next Monday.


The Bottom Line
: Variable mortgage rates were unchanged last week, but five-year fixed mortgage rates continued to drop as financial markets adjusted to the Bank of Canada’s lower-for-longer view and as COVID-related risk premiums continued to melt away.
