However, the game also includes a repetition of the last historically most radical jump of 0.75 points. Some economists are already talking about reaching the 4% level for mortgages provided in 2022. Mortgage rates in 2022 should start to provide in the range of 3.8 – 4.1%
End of refinancing
At the same time, with rising interest rates, interest in refinancing previously granted loans with 7, 5 and 3-year fixations is declining. In November, we are witnessing the end of pure refinancing, as the early provision of a favorable rate before the end of the fixation of a running mortgage ceased to make economic sense. The purpose of refinancing will thus mainly fulfill the function of consolidating more loans.
For refinancing loans, for which the pricing policy consists of a lower margin, a rate of 2,44% p.a. can be obtained for the last time. – during November, however, this minimum limit will also increase at least to 3,29% p.a.
