The best of today’s fixed rate mortgages – a perfect time to remortgage

November 20, 2014

We know you’re probably gearing up for Christmas but now could be a great time to remortgage and take advantage of some of the best fixed rate mortgage deals around. We explain what’s happening in the market and what this means for you

Why are there such good fixed rate deals now?

  • Lenders borrow on money markets, buying money at a certain rate – the “swap” rate – for a certain time period. These swap rates reflect expectations of future interest rates and inflation.
  • Expectations for an increase in interest rates have shifted back, with the General Election pending. November’s meeting of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee decided the weak outlook for inflation warranted keeping interest rates on hold at a record low 0.5 percent.
  • This coupled with expectations of continued low inflation has meant a recent reduction in the cost of funding. In addition lenders’ appetite for business has increased in the run up to the end of the year.

What does this mean for me?

  • It means there are some really good deals to be had.
  • No one can be sure how long these deals will last, so if you’re thinking about remortgaging, now might be the time.
  • If you do leave remortgaging to the point when rates do rise they won’t be as low as they are today.  – i.e. even if you fix you could still save money as they are so low

Here are this weeks best remortgage rates  –
