  • The interest rate will drop at the end of March!
  • The South African Reserve bank will hold its Monetary Policy Committee meeting between 26 and 28 March. At this stage all the indications are that interest rates might actually drop by 0.25%. That means, if you keep paying the same amount on your property loan, you will pay it off 13 months faster - just thanks to the lower interest rate!
