Act now to restructure your debt

Posted on: 2017-12-04

New mortgage rules start January 1, 2018, which may unfortunately affect your ability to use your home equity to
consolidate your high-interest debt into a new or existing mortgage. This is a great option if you are in need of extra cash flow, want to pay down your debt faster, and save potentially thousands of dollars in interest. Act now if you want to realize these benefits:

Consider the following example – existing mortgage, car loan and credit cards total $225,000. Roll all that debt into a new $233,000 mortgage (including a fee to break the existing mortgage) and just look at the payoff:

    Monthly Payments
   Total Debt
 Current  New
Mortgage $175,000 $873 $1,612
Car Loan $25,000 $517 $0
All Credit Cards $25,000 $650 $0
TOTAL $225,000 $2,040 $1,162
 That's $878 less each month!

If you put $500 of your monthly savings back into your mortgage payment, you’ll reduce your amortization from 25 years to 15. Or you could invest in RRSPs or RESPs and reap some tax benefits. The choice is yours.
