Find out what your new repayments might be in seconds.
The Reserve Bank has cut the cash rate by 15 basis points, leaving it sitting at a new all time low of 0.10%.
This news has the potential to free up a lot of cash for Aussie homeowners, meaning cheaper mortgage repayments and huge savings. We expect more banks and lenders to further drop their rates following this announcement.
Today’s 15 basis point drop, when combined with cuts over the last 18 months, could save the average Australian homeowner an incremental $3,372^ in interest over the next 12 months alone.
Everyone can do with extra savings in their pocket. If you haven’t reviewed your interest rate in the last 6-12 months you may be paying loyalty tax and could stand to save thousands. All you need to do is answer a few questions about your loan.
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 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.

Have you kept track of how many times your lender has passed on rate cuts to you? We’ve seen two rate cuts in March bringing the cash rate to its lowest in history. If your rate hasn’t been reviewed in the last year you may be overpaying by thousands. Check if you're overpaying by reviewing your rate today.
On the first Tuesday of every month (except in January), the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) sets the cash rate. They decide whether to raise it, lower it or leave it the same, depending on a number of factors, including the performance of the Australian dollar, the state of the housing market and inflation.
The last time the cash rate rose was in November 2010. Since then, the general trend has been for the rate to remain the same, decreasing only every so often. Prior to June 4 2019, The last decrease was in August 2016.
