THE Savings Bank is informing the real estate agents that your interest rate on credit with savings resources (SBPE) to finance the purchase of real estate will increase next month.
The reduced rate charged to customers who maintain a relationship with Caixa, the largest real estate lender in Brazil, will rise from the current 8.3% per year to 8.7% per year, with an increase in the Referential Rate, from the first day of February, according to publicity material revealed by Reuters. Nothing changes for the over-the-counter rate, which remains at 8.99% pa
From this increase, the bank begins to practice an interest rate closer to that offered by private sector competitors. The rate offered by Santander Brasil starts at 9.99% per annum, compared to 9.5% for Bradesco and 9.1% for Itaú Unibanco, all with an increase in the TR.
The change took effect days after Caixa President Pedro Guimarães predicted a 10% increase in real estate lending this year, in an interview with Reuters, saying it has lower interest rates than most of competitors.
Caixa said in a note that there will be “adequacy in the conditions for the application of reducers… depending on the customer’s relationship with the bank” and that “it will continue to have the best interest rates on the market”.
