Tuesday, February 16, 2010 - Mortgage rules have changed

Mortgage rules have changed. This will limit some buyers that were pushing their budgets banking on low interest rates...but shouldn't have a large affect on our educated clients with our professional advice.  These rules take effect as of April 10, 2010.  So if you're on the fence about buying a new home or refinancing...DO IT NOW!!

See the Video on CTV news here...

Here is the Government of Canada's official release as well...click here
