Rising mortgage interest rates are expected for the rest of 2021.

As the economy starts to build up again due to the rollout of Covid vaccinations and our borders slowly opening again, interest rates are also likely to increase. Investors and homebuyers should prepare for this potential rise ahead of time to ensure their financials are in order.

In the first few months of 2021, the mortgage interest rate has already risen by 0.5%, highlighting the fact that it is likely going to grow further. The exact increase is difficult to define and is influenced by a number of factors, including inflation.
