The reason is the friendly approach of banks, which sometimes and successfully tried to win over the client and provide him with such returns, with his fulfillment may have problems in the future. The favorable mortgage market is also affected by rising wages and a record low unemployment rate, which generally increases life expectancy and willingness to borrow.

The number and volume of newly agreed mortgages have increased

For the first time since the month, the total volume of mortgages agreed by banks, which provide their data, did not exceed 10 billion crowns. As for the pots of new mortgages, all banks recorded a decline compared to August. It will now be seen whether, given the annual rates, there is a significant increase in the demand for mortgages, or whether it is only a temporary fluctuation. This may be due, for example, to the acquaintance of mortgages during the year or to the reverberation of very early previous months, when the mortgage was negotiated at a record rate and those who considered a mortgage took it in the spring (most of it was provided in May and June).
