The real estate market in the fraser valley has been quite busy lately especially in the detached sector. Today we would like to briefly talk about the announcent on interest by the bank of Canada toady.
Today the bank of Canada suprised the markets by lowering interest rates by 0.25%, which leaves the overnight interest rate at 0.75%. Although this was not an expected move, a number of financial comementators did believe that this could and would happen.
As a general rule this is good news for potential home buyers and those with variable rate mortgages as it means the cost of borrowing money should be reduced.
