Fixed-rate mortgage
In a fixed-rate mortgage, the mortgage holder and the borrower agree on an interest rate that remains the same over the entire term of the mortgage. Although the borrower does not benefit from falling interest rates, he also does not have to bear any additional costs if interest rates rise. This guarantees a high degree of financial planning security.

Saron mortgage
The Saron is about to replace the Libor in Switzerland. Unlike the Libor, the interest rate of the Saron is based on actual transactions and is therefore more transparent. In the past, the interest rates of Libor and Saron were generally very similar.
Saron mortgage
Libor mortgage
The Libor mortgage is based on the London Interbank Offered Rate, i.e. the interest rate at which financial institutions lend money to each other. The bank sets its margin on this interest rate, resulting in the actual interest rate for the borrower. The Libor mortgage is adjusted to the current Libor rate every 3, 6 or 12 months, depending on the contract. Although the borrower can benefit from a falling Libor, a rising Libor can also lead to additional costs.

Variable-rate mortgage
The variable-rate mortgage is the most expensive of the three types of mortgage in the current low interest rate environment and is normally only used for short-term interim financing. The variable-rate mortgage has no fixed term, it is only subject to a period of notice.

Find the optimal mortgage for your dream property with MoneyPark


With MoneyPark you will find the optimal financing solution tailored to your needs. But to get the best possible terms, you have to consider some basic conditions - and make some important decisions. MoneyPark is at your side every step of the way: as an independent and competent companion for the financing of your property. By the way: Our mortgage comparison offers you an overview of the best conditions of different providers.


What is a mortgage?


Whether it's a condominium or your own house - if you want to acquire a property with a suitable plot of land, you usually need financing. The most common form is a mortgage loan. The property itself and certain assets that can be pledged serve as collateral. Only with this collateral, the mortgage provider - a bank, an insurance company or a pension fund - grants the mortgage.

.

The conditions such as interest rate, term and amortization are fixed from the outset and become legally valid when the mortgage is concluded. But only after the last installment the property and the land become the property of the mortgagee. If he cannot make the repayment, the mortgage provider may sell the property. By selling the property, he can try to cover the outstanding mortgage amount and his costs.

.

Two basic requirements for any financing


In order to be able to repay the mortgage loan, all financial institutions set minimum requirements for mortgage holders based on legal requirements and voluntary commitments. This is not only in the interest of the banks and insurance companies, but also serves the customer. With the help of a solid and long-term oriented financial planning you protect yourself against a later loss of the property.

.

The two basic requirements are:


Loan-to-value ratio


80 percent - This is the maximum loan-to-value ratio for a mortgage in Switzerland. The term refers to the ratio of the mortgage amount to the market value of the property. Conversely, this means that you must contribute at least 20 percent from your own capital. Banks and other financial institutions generally only grant the highest possible loan-to-value ratio if additional collateral - for example, inheritance benefits or retirement capital from pillar 3a - is pledged.

In such cases, it is also usual that the required amount is split into 2 mortgages. The first mortgage is granted up to a loan-to-value ratio of about 67 percent of the market value, the second mortgage covers the remaining 13 percent. However, there are separate conditions for the second mortgage, which concern the interest rate, term and the exact form of the loan/credit.

Affordability


About 35 percent - By more than this percentage your monthly income should not be burdened by the expenses for the property. Considered are on the one hand interest and amortization payments of the mortgage, on the other hand also running costs for maintenance and provisions for larger modernization measures, which are perhaps due in 10 or 15 years. The basis for the calculation is your gross income, i.e. your income before taxes.

However, the calculation is not based on the actual interest rate, but on a calculatory interest rate. This is several percentage points higher than the mortgage interest rates charged on the market. This is because it is intended to take into account any interest rate increases that may occur in the medium and long term. After all, property financing should still be on a firm footing in 5 to 7 years' time.

Variable-rate, fixed-rate, Libor or Saron: the four types of mortgages


When taking out a mortgage, there are usually four different types available: There is one fixed-rate model and three variable-rate mortgage forms. Under certain circumstances, additional models or even mixtures of different models are possible. Which form is the optimal one depends on the financial starting position: The decisive factor is, for example, how much leeway there is for higher monthly installments in the short term. Every form has its advantages and disadvantages.

The most important mortgage models are

Fixed-rate mortgage: With this mortgage model, the interest rate is stable over the entire term. Maturities between 5 and 10 years are usually chosen. This allows mortgage holders to secure the currently low interest rates and benefit from a low risk premium. This is because the longer the agreed term, the higher the premium with which mortgage lenders protect themselves against the default of a mortgage.

Variable-rate mortgage: This form is characterized by an indefinite term and an interest rate that the financial institution adjusts at regular intervals. If the general interest rate level falls, the monthly rate is also lower. If interest rates rise, you have to pay more accordingly. If you regularly receive larger bonuses or dividends, this model makes it relatively easy to make unscheduled amortization.

.

Libor mortgage: In principle, this model is similar to the variable mortgage, but the loan has a fixed term of between 2 and 5 years. The interest rate is based on the LIBOR - the money market interest rate for major banks in London. The adjustment is made automatically and at pre-determined intervals - every 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. In addition, the respective financial institution charges a margin which is added to the LIBOR rate. The LIBOR mortgage is currently a favourable form of financing, but it does involve interest rate risks.

.

Saron mortgage: The Saron is about to replace the Libor in Switzerland. Unlike the Libor, the interest rate of the Saron is based on actual transactions and is therefore more transparent. In the past, Libor and Saron interest rates were usually very similar.
