Winter property market | Hong Kong has added P after 4 years, and the burden of housing supply has become heavier? The 6 million floor will pay an additional 371 yuan per month

Last night the Fed raised interest rates again by 0.75%, bringing the rate to 3%. Several banks in Hong Kong announced today that they have raised their prime rate (P) by 0.125% after a long period. The details are as follows:

Zhuang Jinhui, CEO of Star Valley Mortgage Referral, said the increase in P this time was slightly smaller than expected, and he believed it was just “testing the temperature of the water”. He pointed out that the bank’s cost of capital is linked to the one month interbank offered rate (HIBOR), which has now risen to 2.6% However, the actual mortgage interest rate is generally only 2.75% to reduce the pressure on the mortgage. spreads. In addition, the United States predicts that interest rates will continue to rise in the future, and the pressure on banks’ capital costs will continue to increase in the future, so I think that P has the opportunity to increase more than once .

The monthly increase in housing supply is 371 yuan

If the bank were to add P after almost 4 years, will it increase the burden on Hong Kong people?

It is more beneficial to choose P in the future

Zhuang Jinhui continued to point out that although the increase this time is not large, HIBOR has continued to rise from 0.15% at the beginning of the year to 2.6% today, and the H mortgage rate also reaches the cap rate at the end the month of July. It is believed that existing mortgage borrowers have already felt the burden of housing supply rising. Calculated with a repayment period of 30 years, from the actual interest rate of 1.45% at the beginning of the year to today’s increase in P, the monthly payment has increased by about HK$589 per 1 million; taking the loan amount of 5 million as an example, the monthly payment has increased by about HK$2,946 .

In addition, Zhuang Jinhui said that even after raising the prime interest rate, the real interest rate P according to the plan launched by major banks is still lower than the capped interest rate H according to the plan, and it will still be in the interest rate hike cycle in the next two years Very Small, so it is more advantageous to choose a P press than an H press.
