Mortgage Rates Expected to Rise in Second Half of 2017
Posted on March 19, 2017 by Judi Whyte RI & Cathy Wood
Mortgage Rate Outlook
After an initial upward adjustment in global interest rates following the US presidential election, bond markets have since adopted a wait and see approach to US economic policy. As a result, the yield on the benchmark five-year bond has stayed constant through the first quarter of the year. Consequently, Canadian mortgage rates have also remained relatively unchanged. However, we could see some upward movement in interest rates over the second half of 2017, due to a stronger Canadian economy and a large degree of policy incoherence in the United States.
