Mortgages in Calgary, Alberta
Mortgages can be open or closed. These two types of mortgages are very similar except when it comes to paying off the mortgage faster than the mortgage term.
If you have an Open Mortgage you will be able to pay it off at any time during the term of your agreement without penalty. That is a great advantage if you are foreseeing such an option. There are some disadvantages to Open Mortgages and one of them is that they usually have a higher interest rate.
Closed Mortgages usually have lower interest rates but restrict the amount of the principal you can pay off early without penalty. They may also restrict the frequency of the repayment.
There are other types of mortgages in Calgary that are explained to you in detail at the FREE consultation. Book yours now.
