Moncton mortgage market

Moncton, New Brunswick, is the largest urban centre in New Brunswick and is located at the geographic centre of the Maritime provinces.

The city has a relatively small population of just over 145,000. It’s earned the nickname “Hub City” due to its central location in the region and history as a Maritime railway and land transportation hub.

Moncton has a long history of overcoming past economic shocks, most notably the collapse of the shipbuilding industry, after which it rebuilt itself into a railway town. When CNR’s locomotive shops disappeared in the late 1980s, it successfully rebuilt itself yet again.

As the second largest Census Metropolitan Area in the Maritime provinces, Moncton homebuyers enjoy reasonably competitive rates consistent with other Atlantic Canada locations. That said, they’re generally higher somewhat than the country’s most competitive big-city markets.

What drives Moncton's mortgage outlook?

The housing market in Moncton—and New Brunswick as a whole—has traditionally lagged other Canadian markets, but that changed post-pandemic.

As of the summer of 2021, house prices in Greater Moncton averaged $260,100, a 33.5% increase over the previous year’s price.

The region as a whole has benefited from scores of big-city homeowners in Ontario cashing in at today’s high values and searching more affordable options in Atlantic Canada.

Comparing the best Moncton rates vs. banks

The same advice we offer to mortgage shoppers across the country applies equally to Moncton mortgage shoppers. Take the time and make an effort to juxtapose the mortgage options available to you. Then pick the option that appears to offer the lowest borrowing cost over a 5-year timeframe—or less if you need a short-term mortgage. Factor in things like prepayment penalties (be especially wary of big bank fixed-rate penalties), porting flexibility and early refinance options.

The spread between Moncton’s best and worst mortgage rates for well-qualified borrowers can be over a full percentage point, for the very same term. If you unknowingly accept a lender’s first rate offer, and it falls on the high side of that spread, you could end up paying thousands of dollars more than necessary, versus had you explored more alternatives.
