What makes an interest rate comparison regarding the bank for a mortgage so important and what should one consider when looking for the right offer and for the right bank? Every year, countless mortgage borrowers pay thousands of francs too much for their mortgage because they do not compare the various offers of other banks beforehand and blindly trust the offer of their own bank. This applies to both new mortgages and refinancing. With a thorough comparison, a lot of money can be saved on the interest rate by choosing another bank, which can then be invested, for example, in furniture for your own home instead of in the loan to finance it.
When comparing mortgages, one should make sure to include the offers of as many providers on the market as possible (banks, insurance companies and pension funds as well as other providers) for the selected term in the comparison in addition to one's own bank. It often happens that potential mortgage borrowers only compare the offers of the best-known banks, if at all. However, those who broaden their comparison and also take into account smaller providers in addition to banks, insurance companies and pension funds in their search for a loan to finance their own property may, in addition to the longed-for move into their own home, ultimately often be pleased about an offer with significantly better conditions.
Before actually comparing the real estate financing options of different banks, insurance companies and pension funds, one should be clear about which mortgage form with which conditions is best suited for one's own needs and for one's own house. A fixed-rate mortgage, for example, offers budget security and thus the ability to plan, but the interest rate is not as favourable as other loans for financing the same property. However, the longer the term of a fixed-rate mortgage, the higher the interest rate. Saron mortgages usually have a lower interest rate than other mortgages, but there is a risk that the interest rate will rise because, unlike a fixed-rate mortgage, it is not fixed - but it is not quite as cheap. On the other hand, you can also benefit from an offer with even more favourable interest rates if the interest rate continues to fall. When it comes to interest rates, the timing of the financing or refinancing also comes into play: If the interest rate is currently high, it may be more worthwhile to go for a Saron mortgage instead of a fixed-rate mortgage, especially if interest rate forecasts indicate that rates will soon come down. Once you have decided on a mortgage type, you can focus on these criteria when comparing mortgage rates and looking for the right deal.
So comparing mortgage offers from many different providers and getting detailed information from your bank is worthwhile, because it is effectively a lot of money that mortgage borrowers can save with the right loan from the right provider.
