Most fixers choose to fix rates for three years

27/02/2013

Two thirds of borrowers who choose to fix their mortgage rate are opting for a three year product. Three year fixed rate mortgages are by far the most popular of all fixed rate mortgage products.

Just 1.4 per cent of fixers opt for a one year fixed rate, while 10.24 per cent choose a two year term and 19.64 per cent go for a five year fixed rate mortgage.

Fixed mortgages remain a marginal product with the majority of borrowers; 80% to 85% choosing a variable offer of some kind.
