You are on: Features and Benefits
Whether you're buying your first home, moving to a new home, or renewing an existing mortgage, choosing a fixed rate mortgage means you won't have to worry about future interest rate fluctuations during your mortgage term.
A fixed rate mortgage offers a specific interest rate that is fixed or "locked-in" for the term of the mortgage. That means you'll know exactly what to expect, including:
If you are arranging a new mortgage, your fixed interest rate can be guaranteed up to 120 days before the closing date of your home. If interest rates go up during that time, you'll still receive the lower rate.
And when it's time to renew, RBC will guarantee your mortgage interest rate for 30 days prior to your renewal date.
With your choice of closed, open and convertible fixed rate mortgages from RBC, you can select the term that provides the level of security (and interest rate) that is right for you.
You are on: Payment Options

You can also reduce the number of years it takes to pay off your mortgage and enjoy substantial savings by:
