Continued Low interest rates good news for home buyers and owners

Earlier today the bank of Canada announced that it has decided to hold interest rates steady at 1% where they have been since September 2010.  In its report the bank of canada notes that although inflation is a bit higher than expected, the current policy is still appropriate and the Canadian economy is showing signs of a broadening recovery even with lower oil prices.


For a real estate prospective a low prime interest rate means that it costs less to finance the purchase of a home which is good news for home buyers and those home owners looking to renew thier mortgages.  


If you would like to know more about interest rates and how they affect the housing market please visit our earlier blog post which can be found here:
