In general, the change in interest rates from one month to the next is very small. Although the figures from the Banque Centrale du Luxembourg are always published with a delay of one to two months, they reflect the current market situation quite well and therefore allow you to estimate whether your interest rate corresponds to the current market situation or not.

Does the corona crisis affect the interest rates on real estate loans?
According to the latest figures from the Banque Centrale du Luxembourg published in October 2020, the interest rates on real estate loans, which were fixed for a very long term of 10 years and more, fell by 0.06% in one year. In October 2020, the average rate for this fixed period was 1.30% compared to 1.36% in October 2019. The rates fixed for an initial period between 5 and 10 years have also decreased slightly to 1.18% compared to 1.21% in October 2019. We also recorded a decrease of 0.09% for variable interest rates and those that were fixed for very short terms of up to one year. These reached an average of 1.35% compared to 1.44% in October 2019. On the other hand, the rates set for short periods between 1 and 5 years rose by 0.11%. These increased from 0.98% in October 2019 to 1.09% in October this year. Despite the current corona crisis, interest rates in Luxembourg generally remain at historically low levels. As the figures from the Luxembourg central bank show, the corona crisis did not lead to a general rise in interest rates.
