This thread has 2,666 pages of great information related to mortgages. There are at least 4 professionals who have a ton of knowledge on the industry (and based of my experience in the industry, the regulars here are much more knowledgeable than the average mortgage agent or bank rep.) and there are also some great non-professional regular posters. Also, there are non-regular posters who share their recent experiences and rates at that point in time to help others.
You get the latest rates, rules and a ton of information here. You get pretty quick 2-way communication from high quality professionals and fellow consumers.
I think this thread on RFD may be the best resource on the internet for mortgages in Canada (bold statement for sure). More people should definitely be taking advantage of it and visiting this thread. I'm actually very surprised how few people (given how big the mortgage market is) visit this thread.
I guess most people don't bother shopping around.
