Want a mortgage rate lower than those advertised by lenders? Ask and you shall receive.

In a Globe and Mail survey of more than 300 mortgage holders, 82 per cent said they were able to get a rate better than the lender’s official posted number when they last negotiated their mortgages.

Of the survey respondents with five-year fixed-rate mortgages, interest rates varied widely, and those who haggled for a rate lower than what their lenders advertised paid less overall. Among the group that bargained with their lenders, 45 per cent said their interest rates were 3 per cent or less, compared to 32 per cent of those who did not try to get a deal. Similarly, only 5 per cent of the hagglers were paying more than 4-per-cent interest, compared to 16 per cent of the group that didn’t dicker.
