The next time it will be a relatively small mortgage, so I might go variable. Historically you can get a better deal with variable rates, if you can weather the potential increases.
HMB? Hi neighbor

With variable I could weather well an increase. That might not be a winner this term but it is always a winner long term.

I would not wave and go with a fixed rate if it was not for the crazy penalty (IRD), specially if I decide to terminate the agreement in the middle of the term. Nobody mean to do that but things happen in life.

But yeah, if it was for a small mortgage, variable is an easy one.
