The Canadian Associations of Accredited Professionals released their Fall Consumer Report – Annual State of the Residential Mortgage Market in Canada – November 2013.
Along with introduction and summary, included are some interesting statistics, consumer sentiment and outlook for the Housing Market.
A key survey for us at Comparemyrates.ca are the Average Interest Rates. The Average Interest Rates for all mortgages are 3.65% for Fixed-rate, 3.0% for Variable or Adjustable Rates and 3.70% for Combination.

These surveys indicate if interest costs increase, borrowers can reduce their payments.
