Paying Your Mortgage Off Early

Are you in the middle of your mortgage? Are you worried that the bank is going to hit you with penalties & administrative fees?
Know what to expect before the time comes. Every bank has slightly different rules around early payment of a mortgage, but the following information will give you an idea of what you can expect to pay in early payment penalties. It is always a good idea to speak with your lender before deciding to sell so you don’t get backed into a corner when your home sells.

It will depend on what type of mortgage you have. Is it a Fixed or Variable rate mortgage?

Fixed rate mortgage prepayment charges will be the greater of three months interest OR interest for the remainder of the term on the amount prepaid calculated using the interest rate differential.

Variable rate mortgage prepayment charges will simply be three months interest.

How Is the Market Today?

The real estate market is just like any other. It is based on supply and demand. What makes it unique, however, is that it is local as opposed to national or international!

The reports you see on the news, social media, or newspaper can be an extreme generalization for your area. The statistics are often based on national sales which include home styles and prices that may not even exist in Prince Edward Island.

Your best bet is to speak to a local professional. Someone who deals with the communities you live and work in, on a daily basis.
I will give you a no BS assessment of what is happening and what you can expect when selling your home. The current market situation will dictate the type of buyers, the competition, and the price.

There is currently a lot for sale in PEI. For this reason, it is crucial that the pricing of your home or property is competitive. You want to get people in the door and making an offer before they leave!
