Is Your Mortgage Renewing Soon? Here's What You Need To Know:

Are you ready for higher mortgage payments if your mortgage is renewing this year or next? Let’s break it down with a simple scenario to help you understand what to expect.


Original Mortgage Details (2019):
Mortgage Amount: $400,000
Interest Rate: 3% (5-year fixed rate)
Amortization Period: 25 years
Monthly Payment: Approx. $1,893

Current Mortgage Details (2024):
Remaining Mortgage Balance: $342,000
Interest Rate: 5% (5-year fixed rate)
Remaining Amortization Period: 20 years
Monthly Payment: Approx. $2,247

That’s $354 (almost 20%) increase in your monthly payments, rising from $1,893 to $2,247. With the overall cost of living also on the rise, managing your cash flow is more important than ever.

Why Are Payments Increasing?:

Interest rates have gone up in recent years. When your mortgage term ends, you need to renew at the current market rates, leading to higher monthly payments.
