The 5-year Canada bond yield hit a 12-month low last week, causing fixed mortgage rates to drop.  This unexpected turn of events may be jump starting the spring market as potential buyers can now secure attractive rates. We saw many homebuyers putting their plans on hold due to high interest rates last year, but we're now seeing many of those buyers back are ready to jump into the market.
