More banks are dropping their fixed home loan rates, enticing borrowers to lock in their rate.

With at least one more cash rate cut expected in the coming months, it’s likely these won’t be the last cuts to fixed rates we’ll see.

Many economists are tipping the Reserve Bank to take the cash rate to a further record low of 0.5% at its first meeting of 2020 in February.

Non-majors Suncorp and Adelaide Bank, and customer-owned Qudos have all dropped their fixed home loan rates, with many below 3%.

Earlier this week, popular online lender loans.com.au slashed its fixed interest rates by 20 basis points across the board, bringing some of its fixed rates below 3% for the first time.

Below are some of the lowest variable home loan rates on offer across the big four banks, customer-owned banks and larger non-banks.
