Mortgage Tips: SA Home Loans
- SA Home Loans Interest Rates
Most home loan providers in South Africa lend money based on the Prime Interest Rate and have been forced to increase their rates due to the consistent rise in prime rates over the past 6 months.
SA Home Loans (SAHL) is not a bank, they are Home Loan specialists and their lending rates are based on the JIBAR rate (definition). SAHL rates are at times offered at less than the Prime lending rate.
At the time of writing, the JIBAR base rate was 11.3% while the Prime base rate was 15%

- Flexible Terms
While the average South African holds their bonds for about 5 years – SAHL does give you the choice to extend the term of your home loan to over 20 years. Most banks limit their home loan terms to a maximum of 20 years.
A longer term will lower you monthly bond instalment, making it easier to manage your financial commitments during high interest rate cycles.
