Buying a home is likely one of the largest financial investments you’ll make in your lifetime.

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or looking to refinance your current mortgage, it’s essential to find ways to save money on your mortgage.

After all, even a small reduction in your interest rate or monthly payment can add up to significant savings over time.

Accelerated Payments

One way to save money on your mortgage is to make accelerated payments.

This means paying more than your required monthly payment, which can help you pay off your mortgage faster and reduce the amount of interest you’ll pay over the life of the loan.

By making one extra payment per year, you could shave years off your mortgage and save thousands of dollars in interest.

Pre-Payment Privileges

Another way to save money is by understanding and using your mortgage pre-payment privileges.

Most mortgages allow you to make additional payments without penalty, up to a certain amount each year.

By taking advantage of these pre-payment privileges, you can reduce the amount of interest you’ll pay over time and pay off your mortgage faster.

Avoid Mortgage Penalties

It’s also essential to avoid mortgage penalties, which can occur when you break your mortgage before the end of the term.  Mortgage penalties are the charges to Canadians which add up to the billion dollar profits big lenders regularly post.  65% of Canadians pay a penalty during their mortgage term.

By the way…contact Huber Mortgage and find a lender that charges low mortgage penalties.  There are a lot of them 🙂

Working with a mortgage broker to develop a long-term mortgage strategy can help you avoid these penalties and save money over time.

A mortgage broker can help you find a mortgage that meets your needs and allows you to make changes if your circumstances change in the future.

From the mouth of the Bank of Canada

According to the Bank of Canada, working with a mortgage broker can save you money and help you get a better mortgage rate. This is because brokers have access to a variety of lenders, which forces lenders to be competitive and offer better rates to win your business.
