BMO Offers Free Banking

BMO BMO is raising the ante among big banks.  Starting October 31 they’ll offer free banking for 5-year mortgage customers.  They claim an $800 cost savings–but that depends on how much you bank. 

Don’t be surprised if other banks follow suit.  The mortgage industry is about to get a whole lot more competitive in the next 12 months.

Keep in mind, however, that in most cases you’re better off finding a lower rate mortgage, or one with more flexible terms.  $800 savings is peanuts if your rate is 1/4 point higher on a big mortgage.
