It was nice while it lasted: ING makes its fixed and mixed mortgages more expensive again
A little over a month ago, ING surprised locals and strangers by announcing that it was lowering the interest on its fixed mortgage and, also, on the mixed one. It was a measure taken against the tide, given that banks have chosen, in recent months, to do just the opposite: make their fixed and mixed rates more expensive to encourage variables and maintain their profit margins in the face of the European Central Bank’s interest rate hike.
This reduction, however, has been short-lived. Since yesterday, ING’s fixed-rate and mixed-rate mortgages have a higher interest rate; especially those of the first modality. Do you want to know what are the new prices offered by this online bank? We tell you about it below.
This is how the interest of the Fixed Orange Mortgage of ING has risen
Let’s start with the Fixed Orange Mortgage, which was the one that had become cheaper in January (from 3.55% to 3.30%). From now on, the interest of this product is significantly higher:
|3.30% at 25 years
|3.50% at 25 years
This interest is what you can get if you direct deposit your payroll in ING and take out the home and life insurance offered by the bank. If you do not meet any of these requirements, the applied rate rises by 0.50 percentage points.
And so the Mixed Orange Mortgage of ING has become more expensive
As for the Mixed Orange Mortgage, the interest that has risen is the fixed rate that is applied during the first ten years of the term. However, unlike what has happened with the other product, the increase is only 0.05 percentage points:
|3.15% in the first 10 years
E + 0.79% the following
|3.20% in the first 10 years
E + 0.79% the following
This interest is also subsidized by 0.5 percentage points for domiciling the payroll in ING and contracting their home and life insurance. The repayment term of this mixed mortgage can be up to 40 years.
Which banks offer better mortgages than ING’s?
As you can see, the mortgages offered by ING if you want to have a fixed or mixed interest are now significantly more expensive. However, there are other banks that can offer you products of this class with more attractive conditions than those of this online entity of Dutch origin.
