Interest rate hike: This is how much more you will pay on your home loan

Posted by IOL Property on October 26, 2023

As much as South Africans are praying for the South African Reserve Bank to keep the repo rate unchanged next month, arguing that inflation is still within the target range, there is a very high possibility that it will go up.

If it does, an increase of 0.25 percent seems likely, although it may not be a bad thing to budget for a 0.5 percent hike, just to be safe.

If you are paying off a R1 million home loan, your monthly bond repayment is currently about R10,837 a month at the current prime lending rate of 11.75 percent. Should the interest rate go up to 12 percent, your monthly repayment will be about R11,011. This means you will need to find an extra R174.

While predictions have not yet touched on the rate increasing by 0.5 percent, if it does, you will have to fork out an extra R349 a month on a R1m bond repayment as the monthly repayment will climb to R11,186.

Of course, the higher the value of your home loan, the more any interest rate increase will affect your pocket.

Here is an idea of what you can expect if the interest rate is hiked on November 23:
