You can’t do the same things day in and day out and expect to constantly make progress. It has been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same things repeatedly and expecting a different result. So we all need to mix things up in order to make some progress in our lives.
For years and years I followed the same bodybuilding style of physical fitness training with little to no improvement in results. It was not until I discovered or was introduced to Crossfit with it’s constantly varied training program that I started to make some real progress.
I think the same applies to today mortgage market. If you have always gone 5 year fixed rate, maybe now might be a good time to mix things up. I am not saying to break your contract if you are in a 5 year less than 3% mortgage but if you are in the market right now you may want to consider looking at the 1 year fixed term or a product that has a mix of a fixed and a variable rate.
I am saying this as we are in an interest rate increasing market, but there is talk that it might not last for long. So the more flexible that you are in your mortgage product then you will be able change and adapt when rates start to come back down.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
