Find the Best Oakville, Ontario Mortgage Rate

Oakville, Ontario is approximately 30 km away from the country’s most competitive mortgage market, Toronto. Given that, and Oakville’s relatively high home prices, competition for borrowers in the city is fierce. That ensures qualified mortgage shoppers get some of the best mortgage rates in the nation.

Over 100 mainstream lenders serve the Oakville mortgage market, ensuring ample competition for your financing. The big banks have the bulk of mortgage market share, but the best rate deals often come from smaller lenders. Albeit, Oakville’s high property prices result in much bigger mortgages than average. That means two things:

1) The impact of small rate differences is magnified. For example, on a $300,000 mortgage a 1/10th-percentage-point-higher rate costs you about $1,400 of interest. On a typical Oakville home, you can double or triple that extra borrowing expense. That’s why rate comparison is so vital in this particular city.

2) If you’ve got a seven-figure mortgage, you’ll often find that major banks offer the best pricing for those. So, compare as many as you have time for.
