Tangerine mortgage products

Tangerine offers seven fixed-rate mortgages, with terms ranging from one year to ten years. It also offers a five-year variable mortgage. 

All eight are closed mortgages, which means there are limits on your ability to make prepayments.

Tangerine’s mortgages are portable: If you want to move before your current mortgage is up, you can essentially transfer the same loan terms and interest rate to your new home without penalty.

Tangerine also offers a home equity line of credit (HELOC). The rate is set at 0.5% above its prime rate.

Tangerine mortgages: Things to consider

Prepayment options

If you think you’ll be in a position to make additional payments to shorten the life of your mortgage, you should be aware of Tangerine’s prepayment limits. You can make a lump sum payment up to 25% of your original loan amount each year. In addition, you can increase your standard mortgage payment by up to 25% at any time.

Prime rate

As of October 26, 2023, Tangerine’s current prime rate was 7.2%, similar to that of the Big Six banks.

Tangerine’s prime rate is the basis for its variable rate mortgage. When the Bank of Canada adjusts its overnight rate, Tangerine’s prime rate will increase or decrease by the same amount, affecting the cost of borrowing for these products.

Other lenders’ rates

Once you’ve taken a look at Tangerine’s mortgage rates, compare them to rates offered by mainstream lenders, including:

Finding the best mortgage rates usually involves comparing rates from multiple lenders. If you don’t feel confident making these comparisons on your own, consider working with a mortgage broker, who can take care of this step for you and possibly negotiate a lower interest rate.

How to get the best mortgage rate at Tangerine

To get the lowest mortgage rate at Tangerine, you can:

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage at Tangerine

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is an important step in the home buying process. A pre-approval tells you how much a lender is willing to loan you at a particular interest rate. This establishes your homebuying budget and lets homeowners know that any offer up to the full preapproval amount is legit.  

Expect to provide Tangerine with documentation, including:

The mortgage pre-approval process will also include a hard credit inquiry, which permits access to your credit score and credit history. Hard inquiries may lead to a temporary dip in your credit score.

What else should you know about pre-approvals at Tangerine?

When discussing your mortgage options with a broker, make sure you understand the fees, terms and conditions involved with each mortgage offer. This includes prepayment privileges (and prepayment penalties). Having clarity around these factors during pre-approval can make the next step — officially applying for a mortgage once you’ve made a successful bid on a home — go smoothly. 

A mortgage pre-approval is free and non-binding. Just because you get pre-approved based on a Tangerine mortgage rate doesn’t mean you can’t get your mortgage elsewhere.

Frequently asked questions about Tangerine mortgage rates
