End of 100% financing and 40 year amortizations from the market

October 8, 2008


With the disappearance of 100% financing and 40 year amortizations from the market, we can provide your clients with an alternative. Because of the credit crunch Banks have increased their rates including prime,it's as high as prime + 1 compared with the old "prime -minus" environment. Unlike the U.S very few Canadians are in arrears, just 0.27% of residential mortgages were in arrears (3 months or more as of June 2008). On the sub-prime end 2% may be in arrears or foreclosure. In total, 20,000 to 25,000 Canadian home owners might be in arrears out of 8.05 million home owners, that's a very small fraction. We may face some corrections in the market and I think the banks are just being cautious so as not to have panic like what's happening in the U.S.

While the mass hypnosis, nay deilsuon, regarding income trusts amongst the press/media and others continues...They are, and apparently will for ever more continue to be, caught in the headlights of cognitive dissonance.
