Put simply, the very lowest interest rate you can get will be the best for you. There are a few other considerations, but generally the lower the better.
The interest rates you see floating around are decided by the mortgage lenders and generally relate to:
One consideration you’ll need to think about is the fees associated with the interest rate you apply for. As a general rule of thumb, the lowest rates come with higher fees. So if you have a smaller mortgage it may not be worth having the cheapest rate if it is going to cost you £1,000. Instead you could have a marginally higher rate that doesn’t have an arrangement fee attached.
Other fees to consider are the cost of the survey and solicitors fees (if you’re remortgaging these will apply, but they can be free in some circumstances, depending on the lender. My job, when recommending an interest rate, is to factor in the fees associated and discuss all your options. This means you can see for yourself what is available, and of course I will give you my advice as well.
As interest rates are changing daily with various lenders, this information changes all the time as the market fluctuates. Especially following the BREXIT #leave decision on Friday, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the financial sector. It’s too soon to say what will happen to house prices and interest rates as we try to keep inflation stable.
KNOWLEDGE BOMB: Self-employed or business owner? – you get the same interest rate as everybody else, you just have to jump through more hoops, do a little dance and stand on your head to get it. You’re going to face struggles to prove your income and more: yes, that is a stressful as it sounds… but trust me, when you’ve moved into your forever home, it’ll be on the same rates as everyone else.
When it comes to sourcing and giving advice on the best interest rate for clients, I find this is very dependent on their future plans, adversity to risk and unique financial situation.
So let me share some specifics which are only accurate as of today (26/06/2016) and will give you a breakdown of how things work and what is on offer for you and also the benefits of using an independent broker.
The number of product available grows with the amount of deposit you have. This means more lenders are available to you because the extra deposit adds another layer of security.
The lowest rates available today are:
|Deposit Size %||Interest Rate||Interest Rate Type||Period (years)||Products Available|
As you can clearly see, the larger the deposit, the lower the interest rate. This means you’re paying back less each month for your mortgage repayments. Even though the rates shown here may change, the pattern *should* stay the same.
Send me a message, or better yet call me, if you want to find out the best rates and deals at the present time. It’s simple. Tell me a little bit about you (what you want to achieve, how much you can afford, if you’re self-employed, business owner etc.) and I will tell you what the best options for you are.
Don’t be a stranger: I look forward to answering all your queries and questions.
