Question: I heard that the longest rate hold I can get is 120 days. What should I do if my house isn’t closing for 153 days? – Shirley McCullough
Answer: A couple of lenders now offer 180-day rate holds. National Bank is one of them, through its broker channel. Its rate is pretty reasonable for long-term rate assurance. (For a 5-year fixed, it’s in the 4.09% range depending on the mortgage planner you use).
The nice part is this: If National Bank is offering a lower “90-day rate,” three months from your closing date, you can switch to that better rate. On the other hand, if rates go up, you’re protected.
National’s 6-month rate holds are a handy solution for folks closing in over 120 days. Talk to your mortgage planner for more details.
