Ten Best Mortgage Deals

Best Mortgage Deals Fixed or Variable

Mortgage Deals - Top 10 Mortgage Deals

Where are the best mortgage deals? With home loans getting ready to rise as we get closer and closer to an interest rate raise, or two or three, from the BoE, now might be a good time to check out mortgages and try and get yourself a good deal before the rates go up.

Here are some of the best fixed-rate and variable-rate mortgage deals currently on offer. Bear in mind, particularly if you are from the US, that BS below stands for Building Society, not that other stuff it may evoke.

Loan to value is fairly self-explanatory it means that percentage of the house price that the bank is prepared to make you a home loan for e.g. 75% LTV means, for a 200K house, the bank will only lend you 150K so you need to find the other 50K somewhere else.

Don't forget the fees too ! Banks do love them. If you have the cash then pay the fees in cash upfront rather than adding them to the mortgage or loan, it will save you money in the long run.

MIDAS SHARE TIPS

Hummingbird Resources has a licence from the Liberian government to explore and mine for gold.
Hummingbird joined Aim at 167p and the shares are now 143.5p, hit mainly by concerns about political risk. The shares are not riskfree, but the potential rewards are enormous and they look very tempting. A punt for the adventurous.

CPC Group
Midas recommended CPP after it floated when the shares were 256p - they are now 303p. The price should continue to rise. The dividend may rise too, as CPP generates lots of cash and has no debt. Existing investors should hold. New investors may decide to buy on weakness.
