In May 2021

Implicit interest rate in housing credit and loan repayments in the Autonomous Region of Madeira hit a new low

In May 2021, the implicit interest rate in housing credit in the Region was 0.710%, decreasing by 0.012 percentage points (pp) from the previous month. It is the lowest value of the available time series, which starts in January 2009. In May 2020, the rate was 0.829%.

The average value of loan repayments went down to €236 in the month of reference, with the interest component standing at €35 (same value as in the previous month) and the capital amortisation at €201 (down by €1 from the previous month). In May 2020, the average value of loan repayments was 237 euros.

The average outstanding loan value in housing credit in the Autonomous Region of Madeira dropped to €58,053 (€58,619 in the previous month). One year before it stood at €57,921.

In Portugal, the implicit interest rate in housing credit stood at 0.820% (down by 0.006 pp from the previous month), while the average value of loan repayments increased to €232. The average outstanding loan value for Portugal rose from €55,915 in April 2021 to €56,011 in May 2021, thus maintaining a steady growth since March 2019.

It should be noted that Decree-Law no. 10-J / 2020 establishes a moratorium on the responsibilities of households with mortgage loans. The moratorium gives households the possibility to suspend the payment of the monthly loan repayment for a period of six months. The various banking institutions offer flexible regimes, regarding term and repayment (interest and capital amortisation). These measures result in a reduction in the loan repayment, deriving  from the suspension of the interest payment and capital amortization or both, which accounts for the differences when comparing data year-on-year.
