On June 4, the Reserve Bank of Australia cut the cash rate to a now historic low of 1.25%. This update was the first cash rate move in almost three years, since August 2016.
This cash rate cut of 0.25%, if applied directly and in full, could save Australians (with an average size mortgage of $380K) $600*, or more, a year.
Following the RBA's announcement, a number of banks and lenders have already started reducing their home loan interest rates.
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.
