DNB adjusts interest rates on home mortgages
On Thursday, Norges Bank raised the key policy rate by 0.25 percentage points. The price that banks pay to borrow money has also gone up in the past months.
DNB has therefore decided to increase the interest rate on home mortgages by up to 0.25 percentage points.
"The last few years, the interest rates in Norway have been record low, and an increasing key policy rate from the Norwegian central bank is a sign that the Norwegian economy is still doing well. This has an effect on mortgage interest rates, and that is why they are now being raised. DNB will continue to offer competitive terms on loans," says Ingjerd Blekeli Spiten, head of Personal Banking in DNB.
"We also want to help young customers enter the housing market by offering them favourable interest rates, while green home mortgages will have our best indicative floating interest rate of 2.89 per cent," she continues.
The customers whose interest rates will be adjusted, will be given information in the Internet bank or receive a letter by regular mail, explaining how their mortgage will be affected. For these customers, the interest rate adjustments will become effective as of 7 November.
