Compare mortgage rates in Montreal.

Montreal is Canada’s second most populated city, but it still has one of the most affordable urban housing markets in the country, and some of the lowest mortgage rates. At LowestRates.ca, we help you find the most competitive mortgage offers in the city — free of charge and with no obligation.

Variable or fixed: which is lower?

One of the most important decisions Montreal borrowers will make is whether to choose a variable rate or a fixed rate mortgage. We compared the 5-year variable and the 5-year fixed rates that have been available on our site (and taken by our users) since the start of 2019. Our findings? While there has been some fluctuation, variable rates are just a bit lower than fixed rates.

Focus On

Montreal housing.

Housing activity in Montreal has remained relatively subdued in recent years. Prices for both homes and condos have seen only modest increases lately, and realtors characterize real estate in the city as ‘stuck in neutral’ between a buyer’s and a seller’s market.

But for now, Montreal stands out as a bargain, with the price of a single-detached home averaging just above $400,000 – one of the lowest average prices for any major Canadian city.

Your Montreal mortgage questions, answered.

Variable or fixed: which is best?

Variable rates are slightly lower than fixed rates in Montreal, a trend we’ve seen in other Canadian cities as well. However, which one you choose will depend largely on your risk tolerance as well. Lucky for you, fixed and variable rates have almost been equal on LowestRates.ca since 2019 (equally low!), which means that you’ll get a great deal no matter which rate structure you choose.

About Montreal

Visitors and residents agree: it's hard not to love Montreal. This elegant island metropolis is known around the world for its European ambiance, rich cultural heritage and big city charms. Legitimately bilingual, Montrealers can be heard conversing in both French and English and the city serves as a crossroads for people from around the globe, with particularly strong Arab, African, and South Asian communities.

Montreal is also the site of four separate universities, giving it the highest concentration of post-secondary students of any major city in North America, and imbuing its streets with a youthful, vibrant feel. The city is home to one of the Original Six teams of the NHL, the Canadiens, and recently added a Major League soccer team, the Impact, to its roster of pro sports franchises.

Visitors and residents alike can find art and music festivals in the city year-round, with the Montreal Jazz Festival being perhaps the most famous annual event.
