Is your mortgage due for renewal in 2023?

Will your mortgage payments DOUBLE in today’s rate environment.

2018;
Let’s assume in 2018 you secured a $500,000 mortgage with a 5 year fixed rate of 3.54% on a 30 year amortization

Your monthly mortgage payment would be
$2,249.18/mth.

Fast forward to today, 2023. Assuming you only made the regularly scheduled monthly mortgage payments and NO pre payments to pay down the balance during the 5 year term. 

The outstanding mortgage balance at renewal would be $448,594 with 25 years remaining on your amortization.

Let’s use a current 5 year fixed rate of 5.24% as the renewal offer today

$448,594 = new mortgage balance at renewal 

5.24% = 5 year fixed rate 
25 year amortization 

$2,670.67 = New Monthly Mortgage Payment.
