One and two year fixed rates preferred

Thursday, September 29th 2016, 9:50AM

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.
