Stress Test Mortgage during Rising Interest Rates

Stress Test Mortgage during Rising Interest Rates

September 16, 2022
In today's episode, we are joined by special guest Denise Pisani, a top mortgage broker in the Greater Toronto Area. We discuss the impact of rising interest rates on the mortgage loan Stress Test that banks require potential buyers to pass. Today, buyers are required to qualify for their mortgage loan at rates that are two percentage points above their actual contracted interest rate. With fixed and variable rate mortgages now between 4.5% and more than 5%, this means you have to qualify at 6.5% to more than 7% to get your mortgage loan.

Is Toronto Real Estate Doomed?

Is Toronto Real Estate Doomed?

August 9, 2022

After a very long bull run, the Toronto real estate market has shifted from wildly positive in January and February, to a much slower pace this summer. Is the market simply more balanced now, or are we headed into something much more serious? 

The change came about because of a rapid rise in interest rates. The Bank of Canada, in its efforts to tame inflation, has put a serious dent into the real estate market.

The slowdown in real estate sales in the Greater Toronto Area has been significant. Now prices are falling too, with single family homes taking the biggest hit. What are we to make of all this, and what are we to expect in the coming months? We attempt to answer these and other questions in the podcast.

Should You Buy Toronto Real Estate in a Soft Market?

June 28, 2022

The Toronto real estate market has slowed down. Interest rates are going up.

Should you buy a house or condo now, or should you wait until the market begins to recover? If you are an investor, is this a good time to find some deals?

We interview Evan Ungar and Jordan King, managing partners of TUK Capital, a real estate investment and consulting firm based in Toronto, Canada.

Get insight on what to do when the real estate market shifts. Prices have slipped a bit, and interest rates are going up. Bidding wars are not so common these days. And yet the rental market is on fire. The economy in the Greater Toronto Area is strong. And immigration levels into Canada are at record-breaking levels.
