BMO Fixed-Rate Mortgages

BMO Fixed Rate Mortgages reduce the risk of future interest rate fluctuations by “locking in” a specific interest rate for the term. This can create peace of mind for homeowners, which makes it a fundamentally appealing program for home buyers. If you are arranging a new mortgage for a future or current home, your fixed interest rate can be guaranteed up to 120 days before the closing date of your home. If interest rates go up during that time, you will be guaranteed the lower rate.

BMO Variable-Rate Mortgages

BMO Variable Rate Mortgages provide you with fixed payments over the term; however, the interest rate will fluctuate with any changes in the prime interest rate. If their prime rate goes down, more of your payment will go towards paying off your principal; if our prime rate goes up, more of your payment will go towards interest costs. As a result, this can be a great financial tool for those expecting rates to fall in the upcoming year. A convertible mortgage allows you to convert to another term at any time. This feature provides security and flexibility, as it enables you to convert to a longer closed term should your variable rate mortgage no longer meet your needs.
