    I would like to know the interest rate I can get. I want to make is fix and over 30 years. What would be my monthly instalment.


    Hi Mark

    In order to shop around for the best interest rate, we will require your supporting documents and specific information pertaining to your application. Kindly advise us of a contact number to call you where we could discuss the processes in detail to follow and we will be able to offer you a hassle free way of obtaining the best deal for you.

    The banking institutions unfortunately do not offer very competitive interest rates on a fixed rate option. If you choose a fixed rate it is usually prime [currently at 11.50%] PLUS a percent or even higher. Therefore it would be best to select a variable rate option, as the banks would be able to offer a lower interest rate on this selection.

    For example:
    On a Fixed Rate option for a R500 000.00 homeloan over 30 years your monthly repayments would amount to approximately R5336.29 [prime PLUS 1%]

    Whereas on a Variable rate option, let’s assume the rate concession is 1% below prime, [equivalent to 10.50%] your estimated monthly repayment would amount to R4573.70

    As you can see there is almost R1000.00 saving you would make by choosing the variable rate option.

    Feel free to contact us or send us your details to discuss this in more detail.

    Kind Regards
