Find out what your new repayments might be in seconds.
Today the Reserve Bank cut the cash rate for a second time in a month, leaving it sitting at yet another low of 0.25%. The decision was made on the heels of a stimulus package announced by the Federal Government earlier this week.
This means cheaper mortgage repayments and huge savings for Aussie homeowners, as it frees up a lot of extra cash. We’re seeing rates as low as 2.49% / 3.89% c.r.* and we expect banks and lenders to further drop their rates following this announcement.
Today’s 0.25% drop, when combined with cuts in the last year, could save the average Australian homeowner an incremental $3,024* in interest over the next 12 months alone.
|Loan size||Monthly savings||Annual Savings*|
*repayment rate based on a P&I loan over a 20-year term decreasing from 3.75% | 3.75% to 2.50% | 2.50%.
If your rate hasn’t been renegotiated since January 2019 or it still starts with a 3, you could be paying thousands more than necessary every year. Now is a great time to find yourself a better deal so you can have greater financial security. 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 are listing all of the banks and lenders who have passed on the 0.25% rate cut to their home loan customers, and the lenders still waiting. It's worth noting that many of those who have moved are not making lower rates available for a few weeks.
Stay tuned as we'll regularly update this list.
