How to Talk to Your Kids about Finances.

General Trish Pigott 13 Sep

Financial independence is a critical skill for future success that your children will not learn anywhere else. Not only does financial literacy help your children have more success in life, but it allows them to move out sooner, and it avoids delaying your retirement with additional expenses to support them.

So, how do you teach your children about money?

  1. Review Your Attitude Towards Money: The first and most important thing is to examine your attitude towards money. Are you a penny pincher? Frivolous spender? Do you buy impulsively or take a long time to make a purchase? How much debt do you have? Your financial habits will shape your children. Parents need to consider what messages they are sending with their money habits to ensure they are setting them up for their best financial future.
  2. Give Your Children an Allowance: Providing an allowance to your children (especially one in exchange for chores) is an age-old way of teaching your kids about money. A good guideline is $1.00 per year for your child’s age. For a 10-year-old, this would be $10 per week.
  3. Teach Your Child to Save: If you give your child $10 per week in allowance for chores, encourage them to put even just $1 per week into a piggy bank. In six months, show them how much money they have saved and discuss why it is essential and what they can do with that larger amount now.
  4. Encourage Kids to Think Before They Buy: While getting a 10-year-old excited about an RRSP is hard, there are other ways to help them plan ahead. One is to encourage them to think about their purchases before they commit. They saw a toy on TV and have to have it – teach them how advertisements are designed to make you want something. Ask them to wait a week. Do they still want it?
  5. Involve Your Children in the Family Finances: It is more valuable than you might think to let your kids see and hear you discuss financial planning; let them be part of opening and paying bills or planning vacations. Explain why and how much you pay for certain things and discuss affordable choices. This helps them be part of the conversation and will work to instill a sense of financial responsibility as they grow up.
  6. Teach Your Children about Price Awareness: When at the grocery store, show your children the price difference between two products that should be the same. Because children aren’t thinking about costs, they typically don’t look since mom and dad are buying! Involve your kids with the budget, and ask them if they know the price of whichever toy or snack they want. For example, Shampoo. Drug store shampoo can range from $5 to $30, with all different quantities. While a low price might not always be the best quality choice, show your kids the value pack price vs. regular Shampoo.

Remember, you are the best example to your children about money. Don’t be afraid to share the ups and downs with them. Be patient with your kids, but don’t give up! The best thing you can do as a parent is to promote financial security and independence.

BoC Announcement Today and What This Means for You

General Trish Pigott 6 Sep


Today the Bank of Canada announced a pause in their rate hikes, leaving its policy unchanged. Which also means no change to current mortgage payments if you have a Variable Rate Mortgage.

The central bank followed this announcement with a statement, saying that they are “prepared to increase the policy interest rate further if needed.” which will be data dependent and we have two more rounds of reporting to come before our next announcement on Oct. 25, 2023

Canada’s annual inflation rate ticked back up to 3.3% in July from its 2.8% the month before. The Bank of Canada warned that they expect inflation to be higher in the near term thanks to rising gasoline prices.

The Q2 slowdown in output reflected a “marked weakening in consumption growth and a decline in housing activity, as well as the impact of wildfires in many regions of the country. Household credit growth slowed as the impact of higher rates restrained spending among a wider range of borrowers.

Canada’s labour market has also lost some of its steam: the unemployment rate has been on the rise for three consecutive months.

BMO chief economist Douglas Porter said the Bank of Canada’s decision to hold its key rate was widely expected given recent weak economic data, and the focus now turns to what the central bank might do next.

Porter says economic growth will likely continue to stall over the next few quarters, making a recession a possibility.

“We might not fall into the official recession definition, but it’s going to be a close run for sure,” Porter said.

Financial struggles brought on by inflation and higher interest rates are damaging the mental health of more than half of Canadians, with many reporting high rates of anxiety over housing and food, according to a poll released Wednesday by Mental Health Research Canada, a charitable organization. Almost a quarter of respondents – 24 per cent – said they have gone into debt as a result of inflation. Meanwhile, 23 per cent said they are concerned about their ability to make rent or mortgage payments, while 37 per cent are struggling to adequately feed themselves and their families.

Are you struggling to make payments? Let’s chat, we can review your current mortgage and situation and see if we can make any adjustments to bring ease back into your life.

Market Beware: Subject Free Offers

General Trish Pigott 9 Aug

When purchasing a home, most offers include conditions or subjects, which are requirements or criteria to be met before the sale can be finalized and the property is transferred. Some of the most common subjects include:

  • Financing approval
  • Home inspection
  • Fire/home insurance protection
  • Strata document review if appliable

The purpose of these subjects is to protect the buyer from making a poor investment and ensure no hidden surprises regarding financing, insurance, or the state of the property.

These conditions are written up in the purchase offer with a removal date. The seller agrees to this before the sale is finalized. The deal can go through, assuming the subjects are lifted by the removal date. If the subjects are not lifted (perhaps financing falls through or something is revealed during the home inspection), the buyer can waive the offer, and the purchase becomes void.

However, recently, especially in heightened housing markets, subject-free (or condition-free) offers have emerged. These are purchase offers that are submitted without any criteria required! Essentially, what you see is what you get.

Below we have outlined the impact of subject-free offers on both buyers and sellers to help you better understand the risks and outcomes:

Pros of Subject-Free Offers

  • Buyers: The main benefit of a subject-free offer for a buyer is the ability to “beat the competition” in a heated market. However, it is not without risks.
  • Sellers: Typically, a subject-free offer will include a competitive price, willingness to work with the dates the seller prefers, and evidence that the buyer has already done as much research as possible. If time is sensitive for the seller because they are trying to purchase another home or want to move as soon as possible, they may also choose your offer over subject offers to expedite the process.

Cons of Subject-Free Offers

  • Buyers: As a buyer submitting a subject-free offer, you are assuming a great deal of risk in several areas, including financing, inspection, and insurance:
    • Financing: While buyers may feel that they have a pre-approval, so they don’t require a subject to financing, it is crucial to recognize that a pre-approval is not a guarantee of funding. If you submit a subject-free purchase based on a pre-approval, buyer beware. The financing is subject to the lender approving the property and the sale, from the price and location to the property type or other variables the lender deems essential. By submitting a subject-free offer without a financing guarantee (or an inspection, title check, etc.), there is a risk that the deal can fall through. Even when you do not include subjects on the offer, you still are required to finance your purchase. In addition, as sales are typically submitted with a deposit, there is a risk that the buyer will lose their deposit if the subject-free offer falls through. This amount can vary in the thousands and is typically a percentage of the purchase price or down payment.
    • Inspection & Insurance: If a buyer is also opting to skip the home inspection and home insurance protection subjects to have the offer accepted, then they assume massive risk as they do not know what they are getting and whether or not the property is up to code for insurance.
    • Due Diligence: With subject-free offers, there is no opportunity for due diligence after the offer. This requires the buyer to do all their research before their initial bid. Because it is firm and binding, a buyer who decides to back out will likely be met with severe legal ramifications. Submitting an offer without subjects is not due diligence and is at the buyer’s behest.
  • For Sellers: When it comes to the individual selling the property, there is less risk with subject-free offers but not zero. While the benefit is essentially there is no wait to accept the offer on the seller’s side, they do not know for sure if financing will come through.

Financing Around Subject-Free Offers

When submitting a subject-free offer, it is up to the buyer to do as much due diligence as possible before submitting. They must identify what the lender seeks to ensure they walk away with a mortgage. Though approval is never certain, prospective buyers placing a subject-free offer should do their best to secure financing beforehand.

Contractual Obligations

Be mindful when it comes to purchasing offers versus purchase agreements. While your purchase offer is a written proposal to purchase, the purchase agreement is an entire contract between the buyer and seller. The purchase offer acts as a letter of intent, setting the terms you propose to buy the home. If financing falls through, for example, the contract is breached, where the buyer may lose the deposit.

It is also essential to be aware of a breach of contract if a seller chooses to take action. For example, if you submit a subject-free offer of $500,000 and cannot secure financing for that offer, and the seller turns around and is only able to get a $400,000 deal with another buyer, they could potentially sue the initial buyer for the difference due to breach of contract.

Preparing a Subject-Free Offer

If you have decided to go ahead with a subject-free offer, regardless of the risks, there are some things you can do to mitigate potential issues, including: 

  • Get Pre-Approved: Again, this is not a guarantee of financing when you make an offer, but it can help you determine whether you would be approved.
  • Financing Review: Identify what the lender seeks to ensure they walk away with a mortgage. Though approval is never certain, prospective buyers placing a subject-free offer should do their best to secure financing beforehand.
  • Do Your Due Diligence: Look into the property and determine if there have been significant renovations or a history of damage. This could come in the form of a Property Disclosure Statement. While this statement cannot substitute a proper inspection, it can help identify potential issues or areas of concern. If possible, conduct an inspection before submitting your bid/offer.
  • Get Legal Advice: This can help you determine your potential risk and ramifications of the offer, should it be accepted or otherwise.
  • Title Review: Be sure to review the title of the property.
  • Insurance: Confirm that you can purchase insurance for the home. Remember that an inspection may be required for this, but in some cases, you can substitute for a depreciation report if it is recent.
  • Strata Documents (if applicable): Thoroughly review strata meeting minutes and related documents to determine areas of concern.

While there are things that can be done to help with subject-free offers, it is still risky. Ultimately submitting an offer with subjects gives you the time and ability to gather information on the above and access to the property or home for inspections.

Before making any offers, get a Pre-Approval in place so you can make the best decision. If you are intent on submitting a subject-free offer, discuss it with your real estate agent, as they can determine if a subject-free offer is necessary or if a short closing window would suffice to seal the deal. A good realtor will also keep you informed of potential interest and other bids during the process. Their goal should be to maximize your opportunity and minimize your risk.

Getting ready to put an offer in on your dream home? Call us first, we have many strategies to help shorten the traditional subject period and make your offer more competitive without going subject free to protect yourself.

What is Alternative Lending?

General Trish Pigott 26 Jul

When traditional lenders, such as banks or credit unions, deny mortgage financing, it can be easy to feel discouraged. However, there is always an alternative!

If you’re seeking a mortgage, but your application doesn’t fit into the box of the big traditional institutions, you’ll find yourself in what’s commonly referred to in the industry as the “Alternative-A” or “B” lending space. These lenders come in three classifications:

  • Alt-A lenders consist of banks, trust companies and monoline lenders. Large institutional lenders are regulated provincially and federally but have products that may speak to consumers who require broader qualifying criteria to obtain a mortgage.
  • MICs (Mortgage Investment Companies) are much like Alt-A lenders. Still, they are organized per the Income Tax Act with an incorporated lending company consisting of individual shareholder investors pooling money together to lend on mortgages. These lenders follow particular qualifying lending criteria but operate with a broader qualifying regime.
  • Private Lenders are typically individual investors who lend their funds but can sometimes also be a company formed specifically to lend money for mortgages that carry a higher risk of default relative to a borrower’s situation. These lenders are generally unregulated and cater to those with a higher risk profile.

All classifications noted above price based on risk when it comes to a mortgage. The more broad the guidelines are for a particular mortgage contract, the more  the lender assumes. This, in turn, will have a higher cost to the borrower, typically in the form of a higher interest rate and possibly a lender fee.

Before considering an alternative mortgage, here are some questions you should ask yourself:

  1. What issue keeps me from qualifying for a traditional “A” mortgage today?
  2. How long will I correct this issue and qualify for a traditional lender mortgage?
  3. How much do I have to improve my credit situation or score?
  4. How much do I currently have available as a down payment?
  5. Should I wait until I can qualify for a regular mortgage, or do I want/need to get into a certain home today?
  6. Is this mortgage sustainable? Can I afford the higher interest rate and payments?
  7. Can I exit this lender if the lender does not renew, or can I not afford this alternative option much longer?

Suppose you are ready to go ahead with an alternative mortgage due to a weaker credit score, or you don’t want to wait until you can qualify with a traditional lender. In that case, these are some additional questions to ask when reviewing an alternative mortgage product:

  1. How high is the interest rate? What are the fees involved, and are these fees paid from the proceeds, added to the balance or paid out of pocket
  2. What is the penalty for missed mortgage payments? How are they calculated? What is the cost to get out of the mortgage altogether?
  3. Is there a prepayment privilege? For example, can you avoid penalties if you give the lender a higher mortgage payment once a month?
  4. What is the cost of each monthly mortgage payment?
  5. What happens at the end of the term? Is a renewal an option, and what are the costs to renew if applicable?
  6. What is the fine print?

When it comes to the alternative lending space, things can get complex. Contact us today if you have been turned away from the bank! We can help you source out various mortgage products and review the rates and terms to ensure it is the best fit for you!

The Difference Between Guarantors and Co-Signers

Home Tips Trish Pigott 19 Jul

Thank you to our partners at First National for a breakdown on the difference between the two.

  • What is the difference between a Guarantor and a Co-signer?
    • Guarantors are not on title to the property but will provide a guarantee to ensure the mortgage debt is being paid by signing the mortgage commitment and the mortgage charge as a guarantor. The guarantor should be able to contribute to servicing the mortgage debt if called upon.
    • Co-signers will be on title to the property and will provide a guarantee to ensure the mortgage debt is being paid by signing the mortgage commitment, the mortgage charge and any other documents that would normally be signed by a borrower on title to a property. The co-signer should be able to contribute to servicing the mortgage debt if called upon. Co-signers are normally required when the main applicants have poor credit and income.
  • Insured and Insurable Mortgages
    • Must be immediate family members – father, mother, child, brother, sister, grandparent, legal guardian or legal dependent, spouse or common law partner.
    • Does not need to occupy the property.
  • Conventional, Uninsurable Mortgages
    • Guarantor must be a spouse or common law partner.
    • Must be occupying the property.

These are general guidelines and there may be more to the borrower’s application. Each application is different and may be subject to further adjudication and conditions. At Primex, we will double check to make sure you qualify.

Bank of Canada’s July Announcement & What This Means for You.

General Trish Pigott 12 Jul

The Bank of Canada announced this morning that the key interest rate will be raised another 25 basis points. This morning’s announcement will be the fifth interest rate announcement of 2023, but the 10th rate hike since the start of the tightening in 2022, with three more scheduled for the rest of this year. The next announcement is September 6th.

Prime Rate is now at 7.20%, the highest it’s been in 22 years.

Last month’s announcement raised the key rate another 0.25%. These rate hikes are supposed to relieve inflation. Canada’s inflation rate rose to 8.1% in June, but Statistics Canada reports that consumer spending has remained high. The annual change in the Consumer Price Index measures inflation.

The BoC’s goal is to keep inflation around 2%, but their forecasters are currently predicting inflation will return to 2% closer to mid 2025. The Forecasters say that this is due to excess demand, higher than expected housing prices and higher than expected prices for tradable goods.

Experts weren’t sure if this rate hike would bring another rate hike or hold. Experts shared that if the BoC increased the rate by another 0.25%, we should see a decrease in prices in the housing market.

Over the past two years, prices of goods and services have risen rapidly, corrupting the dollar’s purchasing power and making life less affordable for Canadians. Raising the rates makes it more expensive for households and businesses to borrow money and service their debts. Higher rates will eventually reduce demand for goods and services, slowing the pace of price increases.

Interest rate changes often fully impact economic growth inflation 18 to 24 months after an announced change.

CIBC Senior economist Andrew Grantham seems to disagree with the interest rate hikes, calling recent hikes “unnecessary” and a “mistake.” Grantham said that current consumer spending is still lower than pre-pandemic levels, suggesting that much of the growth in consumer spending is levelling out to regular numbers since the pandemic lock down.

If you are concerned about increased mortgage payments or how this might affect you, please do not hesitate to reach out. We can analyze your current situation and assess your goals and needs for the upcoming years and find the best option for you. We have been able to help many clients switch from Variable to Fixed these past few months to save them from the increasing payments out of their control.

9 Tips for a Successful Appraisal

Home Tips Trish Pigott 5 Jul

Before banks or lending institutions can consider loaning money for a property, they need to know the current market value of that property.

An appraiser’s job is to check the general condition of your home and determine a comparable market value based on other homes in your area. Appraisals are required for any buy or sell situation.

To help make the appraisal as smooth as possible and ensure you are getting top market value, check out the tips below:

  1. Clean Up: The appraiser is basing the value of your property on how good it looks. A good rule of thumb is to treat the appraisal like an open house! Stage it as you would a home for sale, clean and declutter every room, vacuum and tidy to show the appraiser that the property is well cared for. Where applicable, remove any personal items that might make the appraiser lower the value of your home.
  2. Curb Appeal: First impressions can have a significant impact on an appraisal. Spending time ensuring the outside of your property, from your driveway entrance to the front step, is clean and welcoming can make a difference. Yard work and removing debris and garbage will make a big difference.
  3. Visibility: The appraiser must be able to see every room of the home, with no exceptions. YES, every room, including outbuildings, garage, closets, basement… Refusal to allow an appraiser to see any room can cause issues and potentially cause a decline of your file. If there are any issues with any spaces in your home, be sure to take care of them in advance to allow the appraiser full access. NOTE: If tenants are in your home, ensure you give them the appropriate amount of notice for access. If the appraiser can not get access to every room, they will have to return and can be an added expense to you for the return trip.
  4. Upgrades and Features: Ensuring the appraiser knows any upgrades and features can go a long way. Make a list and include everything from plumbing and electrical to new floors, new appliances, etc. This way, they have a reference for what has been updated and how recent or professional that work was done. Knowing the age of the roof and HVAC items like the water tank is essential. Also, ensure the breaker box is MIN 100amps as most lenders cannot finance a home with amps under 100; older homes from the 1930 area are generally only 60amps.
  5. Be Prudent About Upgrades: While the bathroom and kitchen are popular areas, there are better options than the be-all-end-all for getting a higher home value. These renovations can be pretty costly, so it is a good idea to be prudent about how you spend your money and instead focus on easy changes such as new paint, new light fixtures or plumbing and updated flooring to avoid breaking the bank while still having your home look fresh. Removing clutter, adding a new coat of paint and doing a deep cleaning will help make these spaces shine.
  6. Know Your Neighbourhood: You already know where you live better than the appraiser. Looking at similar homes in your neighbourhood and noting what they sold for will give you a ballpark. Keep in mind that an appraiser has to use comparable solds in your area and not current active listings. Generally they will collect 3-6 comparables over the last 90 days.
  7. Be Polite: The appraiser is there to get in and get out, so let them have the run of the house while they are there. Please do not follow them around, avoid asking them too many questions or making too many comments, and simply be prepared should they have questions. Once they have completed the review of your home, that is an excellent time to bring up any comments you might have. Remember, the onsite inspection usually is only 15 minutes through the house. The rest of the time is spent gathering data and reviewing sales and other forms of research to create the appraisal report.
  8. The Report: Even though the customer pays for the appraisal, the report belongs to the lender that it is prepared for. The reports are not given to the customer directly. Don’t be offended if your mortgage broker or the lender does not share the report with the homeowner, this is policy for all appraisal firms and lenders.
  9. Know The Costs: Every appraiser charges differently. There are a number of factors involved with the range in cost of an appraisal.  Whether it is an acreage property, large square footage or unique overall, those are a few examples of upcharges. Travel time can also be an extra charge for an appraiser if they have to travel to get to your location. You will pay for your appraisal usually through an online portal with your credit card information.

Breaking Down the Components of Your Credit Score for a Better Mortgage.

General Trish Pigott 28 Jun

A credit score is a three-digit number based on credit history and financial behaviour. Lenders use it to assess the risk of lending money to an individual. It is crucial in determining loan eligibility, interest rates, and loan terms. A higher credit score indicates that the person is more likely to repay their debts on time, while a lower credit score suggests that they may have a history of missed payments. Your credit score is a vital aspect of your financial health.

Several factors can affect your credit score, including your payment history, credit utilization rate, length of credit history, types of credit accounts, and new credit inquiries.

Your payment history is one of the most significant factors affecting your credit score. Lenders want to see that you make on-time payments consistently. Late payments, missed payments, and defaults can significantly lower your credit score.

Another factor that affects your credit score is your credit utilization rate. This is the amount of credit you use compared to your available credit limit. Lenders prefer to see a credit utilization rate of 30% or lower. If you have high balances on your credit cards, it can hurt your credit score.

The length of your credit history is also an essential factor. Lenders like to see a long and positive credit history. It can hurt your credit score if you are new to credit or have a short credit history.

Finally, new credit inquiries can also affect your credit score. When you apply for credit, the lender will check your credit report, which lowers your score each time someone checks it. Lenders may be concerned that you are trying to live beyond your means if there are too many credit checks or inquiries in your credit report.

There are two main credit bureaus in Canada: Equifax and TransUnion. These private companies store and share information about how you use credit.

Your credit report may contain your history of non-sufficient funds payments, bankruptcy, debts sent to collection agencies, registered items such as car liens, fraud alerts, and identity verification alerts. It will also contain information such as when you opened your account, how much you currently owe, if you have missed payments, if you make your payments on time,  and if you have ever exceeded your credit limit.

Your credit score plays a crucial role in determining your eligibility for a mortgage. A low credit score can make it challenging to secure a mortgage or result in higher interest rates and less favourable terms. On the other hand, a high credit score can increase your chances of getting approved for a mortgage and save you a significant amount of money in the long run. Understanding the components of your credit score and taking steps to improve it before applying for a mortgage is essential.  Learn more about your credit score here.

At Primex Mortgages, we can help you repair your credit score while shopping for a home. We can create a plan to raise your score to appeal to more favourable lenders and get the best rate out there for you.  CLICK HERE to book a call with Trish.

Will Prime Rate Increase?

General Trish Pigott 21 Jun

The Bank of Canada recently announced a rate increase of 0.25% on June 7th. Making their prime rate 6.95%, a 22-year record high.

The prime rate affects variable-rate mortgages and personal & home equity lines of credit. The increase translates into roughly $15 monthly for every $100,000 worth of mortgage debt for variable-rate mortgage holders.

The Bank of Canada announced this rate hike because of its need to control the excess spending in this economy and the rising inflation rate.

Economists expect to see another rate increase in July of 0.25% again.

But this doesn’t only affect variable interest rates. The fixed-rate impacts mortgage borrowers through bond yields, which determines where fixed rates stand. The rise in the Bank of Canada rate hike and the expectation of another increase next month caused bonds to plunge and yields to surge to a 15-year high. This resulted in lenders increasing their fixed rates over the past several weeks. This impacts new buyers and those with a mortgage renewal coming up.

The earliest rate cuts are now expected in the summer of 2024.

It’s a similar scenario south of the border, where additional rate hikes are now likely despite yesterday’s rate pause by the Federal Reserve. New projections show they expect the benchmark rate to rise by another half a percentage point, while other officials believe it needs to move even higher.

The latest rate hikes have made fixed mortgage rates under 5% a “rare find.” Almost every mortgage product has rates that start at 5% and 6%. It is recommended that anyone in the market for a mortgage act right away to get a rate held for them. We will likely see more hikes to fixed-rate mortgages.

Anyone who is in the market for a mortgage and is still deciding what fixed rate term to choose, we are here to remind you that you can break your mortgage term. It does come with a penalty, but it can be broken. If you lock into a fixed-rate mortgage now, and the rates start to come down in the upcoming years, you are more than welcome to break the mortgage term and lock into a new rate.

Especially those with a variable rate mortgage who are struggling to ride this wave of rate increases are encouraged to talk with a mortgage expert here at Primex Mortgages to see if locking into a fixed rate mortgage makes sense for you.

What to know about Mortgage Renewal Time.

General Trish Pigott 14 Jun

Once there are about three months left in your mortgage term, your lender will send you a renewal letter. While most borrowers sign and send back their renewal without ever shopping around for a more favourable interest rate, this is the best time to check out your options.

Since your term is ending, it is perfect to shop the market or redo your mortgage without penalty! If you have wanted to change your lender, obtain a lower rate, extend your amortization or even change your mortgage from a fixed rate to a variable rate (or vice versa). At Primex Mortgages, we can help by shopping the market for you and finding the best product that suits your unique needs.

If you are considering switching lenders, you must inquire about any existing life insurance or other policies, as this could be affected if you change lenders. You should also be aware that NEW insurance could be more expensive as you are reapplying, and your circumstances (age, health) will have changed since your initial mortgage term and insurance plan was signed.

We can help answer all your refinancing questions and shop the market for a better rate! With access to over 90 lenders, we can quickly compare mortgage rates and products and help you switch! With over 20 years of experience, our team understands every mortgage is unique. We can help guide you in the right direction. Contact us to make your renewal a stress-free process.
