Mortgages were granted to the tune of NIS 3.95 billion last month.
The total value of mortgages granted in April was 11.7% lower than the total for March, the Bank of Israel reported today.
In April, mortgages were granted to the tune of NIS 3.95 billion, compared with NIS 4.47 billion in March.

57% of the total granted in April was at a variable rate of interest, and 43% was at a fixed rate.
