Mortgage Type
Description

Variable Rate

Mortgage with an interest rate that change with the market. The rate changes each month, meaning that the portion of your monthly payment that goes towards interest may go up or down monthly. However, your total monthly payment probably stays the same.

High-Ratio

Mortgage you obtain when you have less than 25% of the total purchase price to make as a down payment. This type of mortgage must be insured – through sources such as CMHC or GEMI.

Closed

Mortgage with a fixed interest rate – usually lower than an open mortgage rate – and a set, unchangeable term. You cannot pay off a closed mortgage before the agreed end date without paying a penalty.

Convertible

Mortgage you may change from short-term to long-term, depending on your financial situation.

 Open

Mortgage you can pay off, renew, or refinance any time. The interest rate for an open mortgage is usually higher than a closed mortgage rate.
