Rates are very close to the all-time low and will be low for 6-12 months before creeping up very slowly
NB Bank Prime s/be 4%+ CPI inflation
Take a variable prime less 0.5% to 0.9%
Take a 25 yr ammortization but make payment equal to what you would have been paying on a 5yr fixed.
You’ll be amazed in 3yrs when you see how far ahead you’ll be in principal repayments

A……; Imprecisely worded question, but generally (90+% of the time)the Buyer does not directly pay the Registrant for bring in an offer.
Fees to acquire a property could range from 0.5% to 3.5%
Typically (but by no means the only way) a Buyer contracts for a registrants services and that contract outlines the fees and allows for two contingencies a) agreed min fees paid thru the Seller’s rep or b) in the event min fee from Seller is insufficient, how the ‘topping up’ will occur.
