How low can you go?
Very low, it seems, with New Zealand’s major banks offering incentives for those financing new builds and house and land packages.
ANZ has just announced a floating interest rate of 1.68%, available from 5 July, for borrowers who are financing a new build. Dubbed the Blueprint to Build, the ANZ special rate will be available for 24 months for new builds and projects that are already underway.
ANZ aren’t the only ones competing for the new build market, with ASB last month launching a 1.79% floating interest rate through a programme called Back My Build, for people building a new house or buying a house and land package.
Standard floating home loan rates are generally around 4.44% to 4.59% so these reduced rates represent a significant departure from the norm and a great incentive to get new builds underway.
