  • Two years, not bad at all. Not enough to change banks, but enough to get the other banks to potentially offer comparable specials.

    • The BNZ has dropped some of its 3 and 5 yr rates today.

          • Terms of trade at 40-year high

            ANZ senior economist Mark Smith said the strength of the data suggested the official cash rate, which sits at 2.5 per cent, was "increasingly at odds with the current economic backdrop".

            The 7.5 per cent rise in the goods terms of trade was considerably stronger than the median market expectation. "This is a major support factor to the economy," Smith said in a commentary.

            • Good move from Kiwibank

              Kiwibank targets LVR changes with cheap loan
              Kiwibank has slashed its floating interest rate for construction loans in the wake of the Reserve Bank's decision to exclude construction lending from low deposit restrictions.
              The state-owned bank this afternoon announced a rate of 4.99 per cent per annum for owner-occupied construction loans - a 0.66 percentage point discount on its normal variable rate.

              • Yeah nice work, actually something usefull.

                Maybe the government should support banks lending them money at really good rates.

                • ^ Or exempt new builds from GST for owner occupiers for the next three years.
                  Leave the banks alone to do their own thing, but lowers the amount the owner occupier needs to borrow.

                        Use your friendly mortgage broker to broker a deal.

                        Wave a quote from another bank under their nose.

                        If you are under 80% the power should be with you.

                        I do note, however, that banks do get quite reluctant on deals, just before rates go up

                        • Was at my networking group and my banker goes along, one of the guys asked him about 800k under 80% was told he could pretty much name his price and said he could do 4.7% for 1 year.

                          • Both ANZ and Westpac have moved most rates upwards.

                              and 1 year will bring you right into the middle of the rates raising.
                              Now is the time to go longer with at least some of the mortgage (as said many times before - split mortgages into lumps of differing maturities).

                              Just got 3 yrs at 5.75% which doesn't look too bad.
