ARCHIVE: Popularity of fixed rate mortgages near to record levels

According to research from the Mortgage Advice Bureau, fixed rate mortgages are reaching record levels of popularity. In fact, during September 2015, 96% of homebuyers opted for a fixed rate deal. This was reported on the What Mortgage Website on 28th October 2015*.

The report from the Mortgage Advice Bureau also revealed that the total number of mortgage products on the market also reached record levels in September. In total, there were 16,465 products available, which is a rise of 4% from August.

What this means for home buyers and home movers

Adam Nanson from Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“We are finding that lots of home buyers and home movers are looking for fixed rate mortgages at the moment as they are seeking to take advantage of the low interest rates while they are still available.

“There has been a great deal of speculation about when the base rate may rise. Latest predictions** are that it will probably be April 2016. As a result, homeowners are rushing to fix their mortgage deals before they have to pay more.

“We are starting to see that lenders are increasing their rates. In, fact, the average two-year fixed rate rose from 2.68% in August to 2.72% in September, for the first time in 12 months*. It would therefore be prudent for homeowners and buy-to-let investors to fix their mortgages to avoid missing out on the mortgage deals that are currently on the market.
