Have the mortgage interest rates of banks in Hebei dropped in tandem? On May 16, the reporter learned after interviewing a number of mainstream banks for the first time that some banking institutions in our province have responded to the above notice immediately and have been actively deployed and implemented.

However, some interviewed bank principals said that they are waiting for the relevant policy guidance of the head office, and the latest mortgage interest rate policy will be announced to the public as soon as possible.

Conducive to new home buyers
Zhang Yanfeng, executive vice president of Hebei Housing and Real Estate Association, believes that the adjustment of the lower limit of mortgage interest rates will have a positive impact on the real estate market in our province.
“The notice of the central bank and the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission can indirectly promote the reduction of the interest rate of the first commercial housing loan of individuals, further reduce the capital cost of purchasing a house, and be more conducive to the purchase intention of groups such as rigid needs, improved needs and new citizens. ” Zhang Yanfeng said.
At the same time, Zhang Yanfeng also pointed out that this policy adjustment is mainly aimed at newly issued commercial personal housing loans, and the interest rate of existing commercial personal housing loans is still implemented according to the original contract. It can be seen that while moderately relaxing the real estate control policy, it better reflects the general tone of "housing and not speculating", but it also gives more autonomy to localities.
Lower interest rates are also affecting homebuyer decisions. According to Liu Ping, although the policy has just been introduced, the market still needs time to react, but the multiple interest rate adjustments after "years have prompted some customers who have continued to wait and see to start taking action, the market activity has increased, and some of the homeowners who have been replaced have been successful. Sell your house and complete the replacement. ”
In interviews, several property managers said that due to the short time since the introduction of the New Deal, there are currently no relevant plans to take advantage of the situation.
