Great news for the Irish mortgage market this week! Avant Money became the first lender to cut its mortgage rates in 2023 and is now letting borrowers fix for life. Lock into a fixed rate mortgage today!
Whilst Avant is increasing some of its shorter-term fixed rates, it is reducing its long-term One Mortgage rates in the hopes of attracting more people to switch their mortgage. The “One Mortgage” products will enable borrowers to fix for the entire term of their mortgage, with rates for the 3 year term starting at 3.60% for a 60% Loan to Value (LTV) ratio. The lender is also offering €1,500 to cover legal fees for those switching to One Mortgage, which has the long-term rate.
Avant Money is upping the ante, enabling borrowers with a long-term perspective on their mortgage to switch and secure a mortgage rate.
What does this mean for borrowers?
It means whatever ups and downs life brings you, the one thing you can depend on staying the same is your mortgage payments. All you need to decide from the onset is how long you want to fix your mortgage from 3 to 10 years. It is important to choose wisely, and a good broker helps with these decisions.
Long term fixed rates may not be for everyone. However, there are some great rates available now, with short term fixed rates from 3.60%.
