How much do you know about Mortgages?

Did you know, 9 out of 10 Canadians don’t know how mortgage interest is charged? ?
▪️ 28% think interest is compounded monthly
▪️ 17% say bi-weekly
▪️ 17% say annually
▪️ 28% have no idea

(Mortgage interest is charged semi-annually)

That’s not the only scary numbers we’ve come across.
Only 4 out of 10 Canadians (39%) are aware that they can avoid paying default insurance on their mortgage, by making a 20% down-payment or more.

Rates.ca survey also found that:
▪️ 7 out of 10 Canadians (68%), aren’t aware that interest is calculated daily on credit cards
▪️ 40% didn’t know their credit score
▪️ 30% admitted they are unlikely or somewhat unlikely, to make their minimum monthly payments on their credit cards
