Use your home equity to reduce credit card debt.
Many Canadians are taking advantage of refinancing some of the equity in their mortgage to reduce their credit card debt. Why pay high interest rates on your bank's credit card debt when you can add that debt to your mortgage and pay a much lower interest rate! One important part of a strategy is knowing "good debt" from "bad debt". A well-planned mortgage can help you turn those bad debts into good debts and get them out of the way.
1. Consolidate high interest rate credit cards to one lower rate.
2. Save money and increase cash flow.
3. Reduce stress knowing that your financial situation is now manageable.
Lower your debt, boost your monthly cash flow, and be mortgage-free quicker.
If you're carrying high-interest credit card debt that has caused your cash flow to slow to a trickle, you owe it to your financial future to have a conversation about how you can roll that debt into your mortgage so you can save - sometimes thousands in interest - and start building wealth. Worried about penalties? Don't think it can make much difference? Think again. Using today's historically low mortgage rates, you have a golden opportunity to give yourself a tremendous financial boost. By using your home equity to consolidate your debt, you can improve monthly cash flow, have one easy payment, and be mortgage-free quicker,
Look at this example from a recent client (mortgage, car loan and credit cards totalled $225,000; by rolling that debt into a new $233,000 mortgage, which included a fee to break the existing mortgage and legal fees):
|Car Loan||$ 25,000||$ 495||$ 0|
|All Credit Cards||$ 25,000||$ 655||$ 0|
That's $956 LESS each month!
