“This suggests that borrowers are aware of the fact that in the case of variable-rate home loans, an increase in interest rates is immediately reflected in installments. These loans are more risky than home loans that guarantee a fixed repayment installment for several years or until the end of their term, ”explains Bankráció.hu.
The min. From January to May 2018, the amount of housing loans with a fixed repayment period for 10 years was close to HUF 19 billion, an increase of 26% year-on-year.

There are also significant differences between these constructions, both in terms of banks and packages, so before borrowing, it is worthwhile to look closely at the multitude of home loans, ”added Iyandel Lertoys.
