Mortgage Fees on the Rise: The Impact of Fluctuating Eurbor Indicator in Spain

Euribor On the Rise: Annual Mortgage Rates Set to Increase

The 12-month Eurbor, the most commonly used indicator in Spain to calculate variable mortgages, is expected to close March with a slight increase of around 3.72%. This means that those who review their mortgage annually will see a small increase in their fees, while those who review semi-annually will experience some relief. Despite initial expectations of a significant drop in the Eurbor due to potential rate cuts by central banks, the indicator has remained relatively stable, with fluctuations impacting mortgage holders differently depending on their review frequency.

For mortgage holders who review their loans annually, this means their fees will become more expensive. However, for those who review their payments semi-annually, there will be some relief. The Eurbor has been on the rise since November and is currently at its highest level since then. Analysts attribute the recent increases in the Eurbor to the tough stance of the European Central Bank and uncertainties in the geopolitical field.

Experts predict that the Eurbor may continue to fluctuate around 3.7% in the short term, with small rises and falls. In the longer term, there may be a significant decrease starting from June potentially ending up in the range of 3% to 3.5% by the end of 2024. While annual reviews may lead to increased fees, semi-annual reviews could provide some relief.

Despite initial expectations of a significant drop in the Eurbor due to potential rate cuts by central banks, experts foresee potential stability and even a downward trend in the months ahead. However, it remains uncertain whether these trends will continue or if there will be another fluctuation before they become permanent.

In conclusion, while mortgage holders may experience different impacts depending on their review frequency and whether they are annual or semi-annual reviews; it’s important for them to understand how fluctuations can impact their finances and plan accordingly.
