Find out what your new repayments might be in seconds.
Well, they’ve done it again! On Tuesday, the Reserve Bank of Australia dropped the cash rate by another 0.25%. Following June’s cut of 0.25%, the Australian cash rate now sits at a historical low of 1.00%.
Many of Australia's banks and lenders have already passed on the cut and reduced their home loan interest rates. These recent cuts, if applied directly and in full, could save the average Australian with a $380,000 home loan, an incremental $1,200^ in interest per year.
If your lender has not passed down this cut, it’s worth reviewing your options to see if there are savings to be made that can help put you in a financially stronger position.
Below we've listed all of the banks and lenders who have already passed on the 0.25% rate cut to their home loan customers, and the lenders still waiting. It's worth noting that most of those who have moved are not making those rates available for a few weeks.
