One and two year fixed rates preferred

ANZ economists have reiterated their view that one and two year fixed rate home loans offer the best value at the moment.

Rates on on longer-term home loans have remained unchanged despite a mild rise in wholesale interest rates. Although the latter might ordinarily flag a lift in fixed mortgage rates, the Reserve Bank’s reiteration that the OCR will likely go lower in November should cap wholesale rates and keep a lid on term mortgage rates.

"With little on the visible horizon to drive global interest rates markedly higher and the RBNZ flagging rates being low for quite a period, we prefer to target low cost 1-2 year fixed rates," they say.

HSBC offers home loans at 4.99%

Tuesday, February 26th 2013, 4:44PM

HSBC has launched what it calls the lowest home loan rate offered by a New Zealand bank in at least a decade.

Its key new rate in the battle for borrowers is a three-year fixed term of 4.99%. However it is also offer that rate for one and two year terms.

For longer maturity loans it is offering 5.50% for four years and 5.75% for five years.

Like many of these bank offers it is “open for a strictly limited time” and it is limited to new HSBC Premier customers and existing Premier customers who borrow an additional $100,000.

As usual with HSBC there are qualifying criteria to becoming an HSBC Premier customer; individuals need to qualify with either a minimum combined home loan of $500,000 or $100,000 in savings and investments.
“We are excited to bring this offer to our customers,” Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management John Barclay says. “These options mean that our Premier customers can get the rates that work best for them and discussions indicate that many are now considering longer term fixed rates.

“Customers can also work with one our experienced Relationship Managers to put together the home loan solution that best meets their individual needs. From our experience, when it comes to home loans, one size doesn’t fit all and it is important for customers to be able to choose the home loan structure that suits them best.”

“Since introducing HSBC Premier to New Zealand, we have offered highly competitive fixed home loan interest rates, and offering New Zealand’s lowest three year fixed rate in at least 10 years demonstrates that.”
