There are refinances, switches and purchases still happening. Lenders are still underwriting deals but that for the most part it is slower, with more documents required, so quick turnarounds are harder to come by.

Rates are up, even though they should be down, with some already adjusting downward, but not quickly.. Whereas they went up and up very quickly in March.. some lenders increasing their fixed rates 4 or 5 times in 2 weeks!  Crazy!  Currently we love the variable product and will try to steer more clients into that for the time being.

Borrowers who are currently laid off will be challenged to get any approvals right now because more and more lenders are saying that won’t do anything until the applicant returns to work.   But some have gotten through for sure, so always, case by case on the strength of the overall deal and the job they have been temporarily laid off from.

We would like to encourage our clients who are second homeowners in Squamish/Whistler/Pemberton or who enjoy recreation in the Sea to Sky corridor to please stay in your home community while we all work to limit the spread of Covid-19. We will be ready to welcome you with open arms and open hearts when this time has passed. Smaller BC communities simply do no have the medical resources to manage an outbreak effectively. For the sake of our vulnerable people and our hard-working front-liners please stay safe at home.
