Balance Risk, Return, and Rental Properties

When we originally met Stuart and Evelyn, they were looking for help to buy their first home, which included a suite they could rent as a mortgage helper. They had managed to save quite a large down payment, and so only needed a low loan-to-value mortgage to complete their purchase. Stuart and Evelyn were happy when we secured them a 5-year variable mortgage that offered an amazing starting rate. As with all of our variable mortgage clients, we promised to stay in touch if the prime interest rate rose at a faster pace than fixed mortgage rates.
