Remortgaging Rates Hit a New Low

28th September 2017

Most people looking to remortgage are trying to reduce their mortgage payments. And with interest rates currently at a record low this is certainly very likely. The mortgage market in 2017 has seen the highest number of people remortgaging since 2009, with activity in July 2017 10% higher than in 2016 as a result of these record low rates.

Remortgaging strengthened in July and reached its highest level since January, with customers attracted by borrowing rates that are at or close to their historic low point.

The low mortgage rates currently available are encouraging people to take advantage by remortgaging with clients also taking advantage of longer term fixed rates due to concerns about possible rate rises in the near future.

Research shows a clear shift towards longer term remortgage deals, with 37% of those remortgaging choosing a five-year deal in July.

If you’re coming towards the end of your fixed term mortgage then perhaps it’s time to start comparing remortgage rates. At IMC we are experts in remortgaging and have access to the best rates available in the market. Speak to a financial expert at IMC for sound advice today.

"Andrew Francis has just completed a re mortgage for me on a property I own in London. I live in Bournemouth so good communication is really important. Andrew and Jennie have been excellent during what was a protracted transaction due to the additional requirements from the lender and their appointed conveyance solicitors. Despite unhelpful delays by the lender , I felt IMC were always on hand to negotiate on my behalf and bring the transaction to as swift a close as possible. My cousin is an IFA who I'd naturally automatically go to for advice and products but he recommended I stick with IMC as he couldn't better the deal and lenders they had available. I normally begrudge paying a fee to an IFA when I know they will also be paid by the lender but to be fair in this case, they earnt it and some! Thanks guys. I'm now £600 pm better off for the next five years ! 👍🏻😁 Chris Amey."

"Our mortgage adviser Andrew Francis is brilliant. When we first met him we were first time buyers with very limited knowledge about the process of buying a first home in the UK. However, Andrew guided us through the process with his vast knowledge and professionalism. We had to recently re- mortgage our flat, Andrew got in touch with us well in advance he presented us with the best options for us and made the whole procedure painless. Of course, we were a lot more relaxed this time around, as we already knew that we are in good hands. Thank you for your help, Andrew!"
