Property Investment News – Fixing your mortgage now – is it in your best interest?

Should you fix your mortgage rate now?

Let’s kick start this Property News Update by addressing the UK’s unemployment rate. The government has taken a leaf out of Clinton’s book on how to lower the unemployment rate in the UK. They’re finally doing something right as figures fall below 1.5 million – big signs of recovery!

And we ask ‘How is it possible that properties are cheaper to buy now than they are to rent?’ Watch this week’s property news video to find out if you need to take action quick.

To fix or not to fix… scaremongering tactics are on the prowl again to “fix your mortgage now!” as talks about swap rates surface. What are swap rates? Learn about swap rates here to decide what to do with your mortgage.

Also whilst the MPC are having trouble deciding what they should do with the economy, the FSA are planning their next move for 2011. Learn how and why these crucial moves could hurt your property investments.
