RBC Cuts Fixed Rates

RBC-MortgagePosted 5-year fixed rates have been stuck at 5.39% since late August. Since then, the 5-year government yield has dropped 27 basis points.* 

On Saturday, RBC responded by trimming its benchmark posted rate to 5.29%.  The nation’s biggest mortgage lender dropped its other fixed rates by 10 bps also. (See RBC rate table)

RBC is now advertising 3.89% as its “Special Offer” rate but that’s merely a point of reference.  Market rates for a 5-year fixed are at least 30 basis points below that.
