Real estate rates remain close to the floor levels observed in November 2016. The majority of our partner banks have financial conditions on the decline , averaging 0.10% base, for maturities beyond 10 years. Two tranches of terms are preferred, 13-15 years and 19-20 years, benefiting from a decrease of 0.15%.

Banks are more offensive

All banks offer even more offensive rates on very targeted profiles. Banks may apply haircuts up to – 0.65% of the base rate depending on the case.

For example, possible haircut applicable on the following profiles:

  • borrowers investing in Ile de France
  • the liberal professions of health or legal
  • the mono borrowers with income superior or equal to 4000 € per month
  • financing with a contribution of more than 10% excluding fees
  • borrowers with incomes over € 100k per year
  • borrowers already customers of the financial institution. For this type of “already customers” profile, the discount can reach up to – 0.65% if it is an excellent profile. In all cases, the bank will do its utmost to align or do better than the offer offered by the competition in order to retain its client.

Through these preferential offers, the banks aim to conquer a global relationship with prospects who will subscribe to their products and services.

Longer processing time

It should be remembered that in this summer period the study times are usually longer . The completeness of the file is essential to obtain its loan offer on time. In case of loan redemption, it is imperative that the prepayment settlement stopped at 3 months and in case of bridge loan, if the property is not sold, it is necessary to provide an estimate of the price accompanied by a mandate of sale.

Usually, a minimum period of 45 days is recommended for obtaining a mortgage. Given the increased processing of files in the summer, Bulldog Drummond advises borrowers to negotiate additional time by extending their conditions precedent of at least 15 days, it is an additional security to avoid possible disappointments .
