With “core inflation” in the EU at 5.6%, the ECB cannot say that it has completed the series of monetary tightening harmful effects on the mortgage business, but also on the lending businessby reducing the granting of the TLTROs that underlie the provision of bank credit to the non-financial private sector.
Euribor will not go down before 2024, and with some further increases in the cost of money in July and September, the rate of a floating rate could exceed +60% per year and that of the fixed rate twice by the end of the year. The situation seems to say: If you can reduce the remaining debt, otherwise the fixed interest rate is worth it for the time being to consumers both for new mortgages, provided the variables do not fall below 4%, and for renegotiation with one’s own institution or subrogation with another. MutuiSupermarket claims that the landline received over 95% of the preferences on its online portal in April, e.g Savings on the variable are expected to increase in the coming months. It’s strange that a fixed-rate mortgage for the same amount and term actually costs about 80% less today than it did about thirty years ago. Telemutuo has made a “generational” comparison between the final price of a 30-year mortgage loan taken out by a young man now and in 1990 to buy his first home: the amount for an amount of 100,700 euros (equivalent to 195 million old lire) now amount to €162,000 versus the equivalent €292,000 paid by the ‘parents’ even if they had renegotiated the original rate over time. At that time, the interest rate applied by the banks was actually around 14%, compared to an inflation rate of 6.5%.
„Financing conditions for buying a house have improved in recent decades – explains Angelo Spiezia, CEO of Telemutuo – Not only given the fall in interest rates, but also because of the benefits offered by the 2007 Bersani decree, which guarantees the possibility of subrogation, allowing the borrower to optimize his mortgage loans according to market conditions“. Let’s go back to younger times in February 2023, the total value of mortgages was 426 billion euros. Out of 25.7 million Italian families, 3.5 million have a mortgage, and out of a total of 6.8 million (25%) they are also in debt through other forms of financing, mainly consumer and personal loans, which is also slowing. With the interest rate hike for Lando Maria Sileoni, Secretary General of Fabi, who recently published these data, there is a risk of a sharp slowdown in real estate, construction and corporate investment, with repercussions on the quality of employment.
As for the first sector, the trend is towards smaller objects, which are proportional to the decreased purchasing power, but the owners are not afraid of devaluations or extensions of the sale periods. In fact, not only are mortgages back to where they were before the unrepeatable anomaly of zero interest rates, which would end sooner or later and slow down business, but they are too Real estate prices that don’t go down (Italians with more than one registered address officially reach almost 30%) and average salaries that are not increasing (and falling due to the high cost of living). Interest rates over 25 to 30 years for mortgages of 70% and more are now well over twice the amount requested and half the value of the same property purchased: according to an average calculated by Corsera, a worker in Milan can expect to pay €1,500 net per month Now the best I can afford is a one-room apartment. Even the Consap fund’s 80 percent guarantee on first-home mortgages for under-36s — after initial success with a peak of 8,000 applications in May 2022 — began to dwindle compared to last fall, until it dropped to 2,524 payouts last February, according to the latest available data.

Write a title for this content She takes all the light. Kate Middleton made a remarkable appearance on May 22 at the Chelsea Flower Show, surrounded by British schoolchildren. The mother of the family, perfectly at ease with the children, attracted all eyes in a long flowing pink dress. During his visit to this horticultural event much appreciated by the late Queen Elizabeth II, his least confidences were dissected in the English press. What she is strictly forbidden to do as Princess of Wales, this beloved activity of Prince Louis at school, this first thing she will do when she becomes Queen…What annoy Charles III and Camilla? Indeed, their appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show on the same day, a first since the death of Elizabeth II, created much less enthusiasm. And the journalist Daily MailRichard Eden, to ask the annoying question: Did the Princess of Wales steal the show from Charles III at the Chelsea Flower Show? It is indeed legitimate to ask the question and to go even further. Kate Middleton, considered the main asset of the British royal family, would she be omnipresent? Some think so. Burst appearances before, during and after the coronation of Charles III, star presence on social networks, remarkable performance at Eurovision… And if the question of overshadowing Charles III is raised, some detractors also find that Prince William, heir to the throne, would too often take a back seat. In her time, Lady Diana attracted all the spotlight, eclipsing at each of her appearances the one who was still only Prince Charles…⋙ PHOTOS – Kate Middleton’s most beautiful looks in 2023Kate Middleton, Charles III’s trump cardBut it is clear that Kate Middleton seduces wherever she goes.

Charles III and Camilla know this and are counting on them, especially since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle failed them, slamming the door of the royal family in January 2020. To the new Fab Four, Charles III, Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton of skilfully share the work. And to their detractors to hear this: if there is a star, it is the Institution, which everyone strives to defend.Photo credits: Agency / Bestimage
