Buy while rates are low

Industry players urge prospective homeowners to take advantage of buyers’ market and unchanged interest costs.

South Africans are resilient and have become accustomed to the blows of economic struggles and political uncertainty, so when we get a lifeline, no matter how short, we graciously accept it.

The latest reprieve is the announcement that the repo and interest rates will remain unchanged. Moody’s decision to hold off on publishing the country’s new credit rating is welcome news for prospective property buyers, but if they are serious about owning a home, they will need to make a move, and fast.

The repo rate will stay at 6.75% and the interest rate at 10.25%, and ultimately means there will be no increases in home loan and car instalments, or personal loan, credit card, and store account repayments until at least after the May general election, says Rudi Botha, chief executive of bond originator BetterBond.

Household expenditure is currently declining so static interest rates are needed to support growth and offset petrol and electricity tariff increases, he says. 

“Stable rates will hopefully also encourage existing homeowners to pay more than the minimum home loan instalment every month and get their properties paid off in far less than 20 years.”
