are saying

A Painless Process

Thanks so much for making the mortgage process so painless. I appreciated the advice and information you provided, and that you then allowed me to make my own decision. Also that you put up with my indecision over whether to go variable-interest or fixed!
Ruth Loewen

Instills Confidence!

Dear Tracy and Team,

Uzma and I would like to thank your whole team in making our current and previous mortgage experiences seamless and happy ones. We both appreciate the pleasant atmosphere, top notch and timely customer service at your office. Your role as our mortgage expert instills confidence in us. We hope to continue this relationship in future years.
Kasif and Uzma

Best possible solution

My wife and I were looking to consolidate our expenses to ease the burden, and we were referred to Tracy Valko by our current mortgage provider. When we spoke to Tracy about our needs and what we wanted to do, she found us the best possible solution, which would ease the financial strains. She shopped around to get us the best possible mortgage rate and consolidate other expenses. Tracy and her team always kept myself and my wife informed and up to date on the progress of our application with the lender in the best and professional manner, making the whole thing for us run so smooth. We would definitely use Tracy and her team again, and refer her to our friends and family. Thank you Tracy and to your team for all of your help! Truly appreciated!
Csaba and Carolyn S.

Canadian 5-year Yield Fell To Lowest Level Since October

Global investors are selling stocks and piling into the safety of bonds in response to fears that the Wuhan coronavirus could disrupt global economic activity. Gold prices, another haven, have also risen. The Government of Canada 5-year bond yield traded this morning at roughly 1.35%, well below its nearly 1.70% level one month ago. The 5-year yield leads fixed mortgage rates, so if this trend persists, we might see widely available fixed-5-year rates in the 2.50% range once again in February.    ____________________________________________ Bank of Canada Now Buying 10-year CMBs   The Bank of Canada announced yesterday that effective immediately, the Bank will expand the Canada Mortgage-Backed securities (CMBs, which are government-guaranteed) it can purchase in the primary market to include 10-year fixed-rate bond issues. In 2018, The Bank expanded the assets it acquires to 5-year fixed and floating CMBs. The Bank held $517 million of these 5-year CMBs as of …

Weak New Listings Slow Canadian Home Sales as Prices Continue to Rise

Sellers Housing Market  Now in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Statistics released today by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) show that national existing-home sales dipped between November and December owing to a dearth of new listings, especially in the GTA. National home sales edged down 0.9% in the final month of 2019, ending a streak of monthly gains that began last March. Activity is now about 18% above the six-year low reached in February 2019 but ends the year about 7% below the peak recorded in 2016 and 2017 (see chart below). There was an almost even split between the number of local markets where activity rose and those where it declined, with higher sales in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Calgary and Montreal offsetting declines in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ottawa. Actual (not seasonally adjusted) activity was up 22.7% compared to the quiet month of …

Sigh of Relief as December Jobs Report Rebounds

Welcome Rebound in Labour Markets in December For this notoriously volatile data series, it is particularly true that ‘one month does not a trend make.’ Following last month’s dismal employment report, job growth rebounded in December, erasing almost half of the earlier decline (even more if you exclude transitory factors in November). As well, the unemployment rate reversed much of its November spike, capping the second-best year of job growth since the recession and supporting the Bank of Canada’s view that the Canadian economy is resilient. Canada’s economy created 35,200 net new jobs in December, bringing the total number of jobs added to 320,300 in 2019, the second-most since 2007. The jobless rate ticked down three basis points to 5.6% and wage gains decelerated to a still-healthy 3.8% from a year earlier. All of the job creation was in full-time employment in the private sector. Provincially, employment gains in December …
