The Bank Of Canada Drops the Overnight Lending Insurance Rate

January 21st, 2015 by Julie Vesuwalla

Home Owner picture

Huge news was announced by the Bank Of Canada this morning. They announced that the key overnight lending rate was reduced by 0.25 of a percentage point to 0.75. This rate has been steady at 1 % since September 2010. Their reasoning behind the interest rate drop was it being a significant response to the uncertainty surrounding the volatile Oil Market in Canada and the declining Oil prices.

What this means for the average prospective buyer in Canada is that there will now be lower rates for variable mortgage rates, lines of credit, and other loans that differentiate with prime rates. This will provide a greater incentive to home buyers and ultimately provide insurance with the declining oil prices and the effect on the Canadian economy, and most importantly the Alberta Economy.

We foresee the Calgary Real Estate Market staying stable throughout this and the oil prices hopefully rebounding before we see a significant effect on the market.

Today is a very exciting day for our team, which says a lot as it’s a Monday, and it usually takes a lot to make a Monday enjoyable. The reason for our immense excitement on this wintery Monday in December is that a record was set for our team this past weekend.

Our Home Sweet Home Team leader and Realtor, Julie Vesuwalla, firmly sold the most expensive home of her 15 + year career specializing in Calgary Real Estate. Julie has been a top producing realtor her entire career as a Calgary Real Estate Associate but this was her first time selling a multi-million dollar home. The record breaking house was a $2, 525,000 home in the desirable and exclusive Calgary Community of Bayview. Even more impressive about this feat, is how desirable this community is and how prestigious it is, in how how little homes are sold in this area.

We want to extend our Congratulations to Julie. We are ecstatic to be able to contribute to Calgary’s successful Luxury Real Estate Market. Our luxury real estate market has experienced a record breaking year in terms of how many homes have been sold over $1¬† million.
