The Euribor rises today and dispels the hope that mortgages will go down in April

Date: May 20, 2024 Time: 08:20:57

The Euribor today rises to 3.748% and is heading into the month of April in which all mortgage holders who renew their mortgage payment this month can have good news. March closed with only a decrease for semiannual renewals, but in this fourth month of the year the average (3,685) will be compared with the data for April 2023 and that 3,756 from a year ago is the hope for all mortgages linked to a variable type. But for now as the month progresses, this good news dissipates. In the first days of April, the Euribor moves along the thin line between paying more or achieving the first mortgage reduction in months. Thus begins a comparison to calculate the new mortgage payments between an upward trend and one that falls or if it rises, it does so very little. Gone are the increases of up to 600 euros per month that many mortgage holders have been enduring for a year.

How much does the mortgage go down in April?

If April returns to the initial trend, in this trend, whoever has contracted a variable mortgage of 150,000 euros for 30 years with a Euribor + 0.99% differential and makes the annual review with the Euribor at 3.658% will see their quota go from from 778.68 euros to 773.41 euros, so the decrease will be 5.27 euros per month or, which is the same, 63.26 euros per year. The data contrasts with what happened in March where only semi-annual renewals lower the mortgage payment: up to 25 euros less per month.

The best fixed mortgages of April

In the field of fixed mortgages, Sabadell is one of the entities with the best conditions. It offers a TIN of 2.75% and an APR of 3.87% as long as the payroll or pension is domiciled and three insurance policies are purchased (home, life and payment protection).

Santander’s fixed mortgage follows closely. The user will be able to enjoy a TIN of 2.80% and an APR of 3.39%. However, in this case more requirements will have to be assumed: direct debit of payroll, pension or self-employed payment; use the credit card up to six times; take out four insurance policies (home, life, accidents and disability); have the renting of a security system from Movistar Prosegur Alarmas and have a home with an A+, A or B energy efficiency certificate.

Caixabank is one of the banks that has decided to join the ‘mortgage war’ this April. It markets a fixed rate loan with a TIN of 2.90% and an APR of 4.27%. In exchange, the direct debit of a payroll of more than 600 euros and 3 receipts will be necessary; make purchases with Caixabank cards; take out two insurance policies (life, home) and purchase a Securitas Direct alarm.

The best mixed mortgages of April

Although fixed mortgages are improving their conditions, we must not forget that mixed-type mortgages continue to be an alternative for those people who want a lower fixed TIN for a specific period of time.

Sabadell, for example, has a mixed mortgage with a fixed NIR of 2.25% for the first three years and, afterwards, Euribor +0.85%. All this as long as the payroll is domiciled and two insurance policies (home and life) are purchased.

For its part, Abanca offers a mixed mortgage with a TIN of 2.50% for the first 5 years of the life of the loan. From the sixth year onwards, the TIN becomes Euribor +0.60%. The links that will have to be assumed in this case are direct debit of the payroll, making 24 purchases a year with the entity’s credit card and taking out two insurance policies (life and home).

The best mortgage variables

For those who are considering opting for a variable mortgage, they should take into account the one marketed by EVO. It is made up of a TIN of the Euribor +0.48% (2.20% during the first two years) and an APR of 4.29%. In exchange, you will have to domiciliate your payroll, unemployment benefit or pension of more than 600 euros and take out home insurance.

Openbank is not far behind. Your variable mortgage has a TIN of Euribor +0.60& (1.60% during the first year) and an APR of 4.59%. In order to enjoy these conditions it will be necessary to domiciliate the payroll and purchase two insurance policies (life and home).
