Since houses in Canada tend to steadily grow in value, there is the option of pulling more equity at very low rates, and using it to reorganize, once priorities and financial life. For instance, renovation may be costly if it’s financed using an unsecured line of credit, or credit card’s debt. Using the mortgage for it while spreading it over the years makes sense as renovations is a long term expense. Same with pulling equity to act as a down payment to purchase your investment property.

To you, the difference in rate of 0.1% or even 0.2% will translate over the course of 5 years to ~$2000-$3000 saved on a 500K mortgage. Saying that, a mortgage that is constructed to allow you further modification along the way, will save you 20-60K throughout the 5 year term. Yes, you heard right. There are much more influential features in your mortgage than a simple rate.

So why do we always focus on rates? Because banks would not want to prompt flexibility with the risk of losing you to their competitor. They draw your attention to rate comparison, knowing that the big money is not there. The big money is in taking the right mortgage in the first place, that will allow breaking it for a small cost, leave your current lender and save thousands of dollars by doing so.
