Rate Comparison

Let's take the best available 5 yr fixed rate at RBC and compare it with our best 5 yr fixed rate on a purchase price of $320k with a 5% downpayment with a 25 yr amortization. As RBC is currently offering a rate of 3.79% their payments would be $1,608 a month, while we could arrange payments of $1,525 a month.

Today, on the 5 year fixed rate, compared to the Royal Bank of Canada, First Foundation will save you $83/month or $4,980 over 5 years!
