    Currently have a 5 yr fixed mtg with TD that is up for renewal hext month.They called me about a month and a half ago to offer a rate seeing that the BOC was to make an announcement. I declined and the BOC didn't increase the rate. About an hour or so ago they called to offer me a that is lower than what is stated in the renewal docs that I received 3 days ago. I am being offered 3.34 on a 5 yr fixed but I feel that they can go lower because 8 went through the same thing 5 yrs ago. I know we are not obliged to but I'd like to stay with them. Is this a good rate? I'll ask for a reduction to 3.24 to match what Tangerine is offering (what I saw online).
    Thanks in advance

    RBC just increased their 5 year rate. Expect other banks to follow more than likely.

    Make the big banks compete with each other.

    Good rate! When I started with my mortgage I was paying 14% and the lowest I ever had was 7%. Past tense fortunately Then again I had a mortgage lender who allowed me to pay as much extra every week as I wanted and then when I discharged the mortgage there were zero fees. They just said... "thanks - you are finished" It was a good day

    That is a competitive rate. Keep in mind if you switch, you will have to "re-qualify" under new rules. . . which means you have to qualify at 2% higher than going rate....so for example if you goy a 3% rate, you have to qualify at 5%.
    If you're going to negotiate, do it now before the rate announcement.
