Every conventional mortgage that includes a minimum 20% down payment requires an appraisal because the mortgage is uninsured. The lender wants to see that your purchase price is in line with the property’s fair market value. Lenders want to see that you are purchasing a quality property and that they will be able to recuperate the full amount if you default on the loan.

What are Fixed and Variable rates?
In a Fixed Rate Mortgage, the interest rate is fixed for a specific amount of time. This period of time (the mortgage term) can range anywhere from 6 months to 10 years. Over the course of the mortgage, less of the payment counts toward interest and more toward the principal.
A Variable Rate Mortgage is one in which your interest rate will fluctuate with the Bank of Canada’s prime lending rate.. When rates go up, a larger portion of the payment goes toward interest. When rates go down, more of the payment goes toward principal.
What is an earnest deposit?
This is a sum of money given to bind the sale of real estate, or a sum of money given to ensure payment or an advance of funds in the processing of a loan.
