What's happening with mortgage rates?

That's the question on everyone's lips. And, the most common question asked by our social media community about mortgages. 

We reached out to our partners at NZ Mortgages for some answers. 

Forecast for interest rates

As the economy continues to recover from recent events, many people are eager to know when interest rates might shift. While it's still early to make precise predictions, the latest announcement on the Official Cash Rate (OCR) suggests that rates could experience a slight decline towards the end of this year or early 2024. Economists are reconfirming that the financial landscape might remain relatively tight for the next 6 to 12 months, keeping rates stable during this period.

Relief on the Horizon

Despite the short-term forecast of stable rates, there is a glimmer of hope for potential relief in the future. Economists are anticipating a positive shift in the market, offering the possibility of favorable rate adjustments beyond the initial recovery phase. As market conditions evolve, it's essential to stay informed and monitor any developments that may impact mortgage rates.
