Prerequisite for this wish-fulfillment is, however, that the borrower in addition to the security of real estate (through mortgage registration) itself refers to a correspondingly high and as far as possible secure income. Additional collateral, E.g. additional borrowers with further income covers are useful. “The credit institution is for full financing a corresponding interest-rate premium demand, since repayment risk compared to normal” annuity loans (with normal lending outflow by about 60%) is. The current situation offers the prospect of a cheap financing given the current interest rate situation in the capital market historically cheap real estate financing are possible. Many real estate buyers are therefore wonder why didn’t fixate a financing at favourable terms when later despite a higher equity ratio again attracting interest on the capital market no more favourable financing is possible.
