Financing rural property with a standard consumer mortgage is one of the most common mistakes made by people buying farmland or land in rural areas. It's a mistake that can cost you thousands of dollars. A qualified mortgage broker knows this, and will examine all options and will connect you with the best lender, offering the best mortgage options.


Rates on agricultural mortgages rise and fall based on market conditions. That is the case with all mortgages, and that is why it is important to decide if you want a variable rate, or a fixed rate agricultural mortgage. Fixed rate mortgages offer stability through the life of the repayment period. If you have studied the market and believe rates are going to fall over time a variable rate mortgage might provide savings over time, but if you are wrong and rates increase your mortgage payments could spike and your interest payments could increase substantially. If you are on a tight budget a variable rate agricultural mortgage could put stress on you and your family, which is why it is important to make an informed decision. A qualified mortgage broker can provide information that will help guide you through the decision making process.

Many people also look at refinancing when market conditions are favourable. For instance someone locked into a fixed mortgage might look at refinancing when market conditions result in a substantial interest rate decline. When fees are all accounted for, and the savings on interest payments over time are calculated, it can make sense to look at refinancing. The numbers never lie, but sometimes it takes a professional to provide an accurate assessment, which is why it is important to seek qualified help in this area.
