Mortgage rates in Canada have been on the rise in recent months, and The Bank of Canada is also set to raise the stress test qualifying rate again, this time from 4.64% to 4.84%.

But despite most analysts projecting two or maybe even three more rate hikes before the end of 2018, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to pay more, as long as you act now.

What many potential home buyers in Canada may not realize is that even if you’re not quite yet ready to buy, you can still lock in a rate quote based on current lending conditions, and whatever rate you eventually become pre-qualified for will hold for a maximum of 120 days while you search for the perfect new place to live.

The Calgary housing market has been trending upward lately, and while the recovery still feels slow, it’s also been fairly steady over the first half of 2017. But starting last October, lending standards in Canada tightened, and both fixed lending rates and prime lending rates have continued to climb at what some mortgage brokers are saying is the quickest, most frequent series of rate increases they've ever experienced.  

Earlier this month, the Bank of Canada just raised its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points to 0.75%, making it the first major central bank to increase rates following the financial crisis. But just what does this mean and how does it affect you as a potential home buyer? Well, that's where it gets complicated.

New data from the Calgary Real Estate Board revealed single-family home sales jumped 8% in June compared to the same time last year, and while any increase in sales activity is welcomed, new listings added to the market also surged by 24% last month as well, which isn’t great news for home sellers heading into the upcoming fall season. 

According to the same report, though, year-to-date inventory still remains roughly 9% below the first half of 2016, and with both year-to-date sales and home prices up slightly, market conditions are still relatively normal for what you'd expect during a gradual, and hopefully on-going recovery. 

As of the end of  last month, the median price for detached single-family homes jumped by 5.2%, reaching $514,800. Overall
