My mortgage is up for renewal in 2 years. However, I'm currently being wooed by my bank to make the switch over to them. I'm seriously thinking about it.
My penalty for breaking my mortgage? 1300.00. Plus the bank will cover 500.00 towards legal fees, and some other fees amounting to close to another 700.00. Then, we had the critical illness policy added in, plus the death one. ( I currently had death but no critical illness).
My interest rate is 4.10 and I owe 80,000.00 roughly. My new mortgage would be 106,000.00, and I would have 2 major debts paid off ( "saving" 2400/year in interest and another 3600 in repayment/ year). Plus if I go with my bank, I won't be paying bank fees any more ( 10.95 added to the mix or a savings of another 131.40/year).
My payments will increase to around 360/ biweekly, up from 260. I have two options a 4 year mortgage at 3.39 or a 7 year at 3.89 both rates are good until mid June.
My income will be dropping mid june from 1600/biweekly to 1250/biweekly, however I will no longer be paying rent-150/biweekly or the 400 km round trip communte each week, another savings of 150/biweekly gas, plus the addition oil changes( every 6-7 weeks 45.00 which works out to be 8.5/year 342.50 a year) to one every 4 months or so 180/year, plus saving on the wear and tear on my vehicle. I could also take in a boarder for the school year, which could add another 300/month to my income.
Any thoughts, ideas, etc?
Thursday, running out of time
