Cheapest way to finance
The cheapest way to finance an is to expand the mortgage loan if that opportunity exists. It requires that you have enough high income so that you do not hit the debt-to-income ceiling (4.5x gross salary) and you should also bear in mind that the amortization requirement for new loans differs from previous rules and may ultimately mean a higher amortization rate and thus take a larger part of one’s net income.
If one is not able to finance it through the mortgage loan, an alternative is to borrow through a private loan. Private loans for can be granted for up to 15 years, which means a faster rate of amortization than a mortgage loan, but only on the private loan. This means that the monthly cost can still be considerably lower than the entire mortgage loan if it is required by the new amortization rules. When you are going to borrow you should make a set up of your options and see which one is most favorable. One question that you will then have to answer is whether a lower interest rate justifies higher monthly costs. Lower interest rates are obviously preferable if the opportunity exists. But the interest rate on private loans is relatively favorable at the moment and at the time of writing, the difference between the average interest rates between mortgages and private loans is about 2.5%. So much more, a private loan costs on average versus a mortgage loan.
