It is safe to say that we are all looking forward to putting 2020 behind us. But have you put much thought into 2021 and what might be possible for you and your family financially?
Interest rates are at an all-time low, meaning there has never been a better time to refinance or borrow. Additionally, the average cost of a home in Canada is forecasted to rise to $531,000 in 2020, up from $488,862 in 2018, with home values across Ontario increasing 15-20% and continuing to climb in the new year. These higher values and lower rates put homeowners at an advantage, allowing them to immediately benefit from their existing property equity.
Using the equity to pay off high-interest debts, upgrading homes or even building extensions for a more conducive work-from-home life are significant possibilities that most homeowners could consider while being able to pay everything off at a much lower interest rate.
