Cheap Contractor Mortgage Deals
We have had some of the best cheap contractor mortgage deals we have ever had over the past few years. Mortgage rates have been unbelievably low, historically, in recent years.
This was caused by the savage economic downturn and efforts by the Bank of England to boost the economy by keeping interest rates at their lowest rates ever.
However, that could be all coming to an end in the next few weeks.
Interest Rate Rises
Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney, has recently stated that he expected to be considering higher base rates by the year’s end.
That statement in itself is causing forward market interest rates to rise.
This is putting pressure on the fixed rates over 2, 3 and 5 years that banks are giving.
It seems that the cost of funding these deals has jumped by 10% in recent weeks. The banks won’t suck that up for too long.
Contractor Mortgage Rates
Lenders are expected to increase their fixed interest mortgage rates over the coming weeks hitting contractor mortgages hard.
Low interest rates have been around for a while. If anyone wants to take advantage of cheap contractor mortgage deals then now is the time to do it.
We are unlikely to see such low-interest rates again – and they have just weeks, even days, to go.
The first tweaks to interest rates are expected to take place over the next week or two. This will just be the start.
Contractor Mortgage Market
The competitive contractor mortgage market has kept prices low but, with the cost of money that the banks can borrow rising, the dam is about to burst and banks and mortgage lenders will have to push rates higher very shortly.
Base rates have been at 0.5%, an astonishingly low-interest rate, for 6 years. This will never happen again.
They are expected to rise by the end of the year but fixed interest mortgages are already rising in anticipation of that rise. The cost of money is rising.
Long Term Fixed Rates
Those wanting longer term fixed rates need to get those now.
There has been a rush of mortgage applications over the last few weeks as house buyers rush to get those once-in-a-lifetime deals.
Cheap contractor mortgage deals are coming to an end. There are only days, or at most weeks, to take advantage of this.
