Nevertheless, the average ratio rose compared with the previous year, when it was still 3.96 per cent. Average interest for 15-year fixed-interest mortgages fell to 3.99 per cent after 4.04 per cent in the previous year.

Yields culminated in May at 3.11 per cent and have since fallen to 2.83 per cent, as the finance market looked for a port under the risk of a commercial upheaval. In spite of the recent falls, long-term lending interest remains almost at the highest level for seven years. On 24 May, the average 30-year mortgage interest rate of 4.66 per cent achieved a high this year; the 15-year interest rate on this date was 4.15 per cent.
