Mortgage Holders Get a Boost


Expert Financial Advice Letterkenny Co Donegal from Advice First and Pascal Curran Mortgage Holders Help Mortgage holders get a boost

Tracker Mortgage holders got a boost yesterday, when the European Central Bank (ECB) cut interest rates to a record low of 0.05 per cent in an effort to kick-start the ailing euro zone economy.

While Ireland’s economy has improved since exiting the bailout, concerns are growing about the state of the euro zone economy as a whole, with low inflation a particular concern, and countries such as France and Italy struggling to emerge from recession.

Tracker mortgages

Tracker variable rate / tracker mortgages - this is set at a fixed percentage or 'margin' above the ECB rate. For example, it could be set at the ECB rate plus one percentage point. So, if the ECB rate rises by a percentage point, so does your rate. It will also 'track' the ECB rate when this rate goes down.
Tracker rates continue over the term of your mortgage. None of the providers offer tracker mortgages to new customers any more. If you already have a tracker mortgage, you have the benefit of a guaranteed link to the ECB rate.

So all you luck tracker mortgage holder will be getting confirmation shortly of the rate reduction
