Tic:Toc cuts variable home loan rates to 'lowest ever'

Online lender Tic:Toc cut variable rates on some home loans today by 15 basis points to the lowest they've ever been.

The lender's variable rate paying principal & interest (P&I) for owner occupiers was cut down to 2.04% p.a. (2.05% p.a. comparison rate*), for loan-to-value (LVR) ratios up to 90%.

Tic:Toc now also claims to have the lowest fee-free variable loan paying (P&I) for investors, now down to 2.19% p.a. (2.20% p.a. comparison rate*) for borrowers with maximum LVRs of 90%.

Base criteria of: a $400,000 loan amount, variable, fixed, principal and interest (P&I) home loans with an LVR (loan-to-value) ratio of at least 80%. However, the ‘Compare Home Loans’ table allows for calculations to be made on variables as selected and input by the user. All products will list the LVR with the product and rate which are clearly published on the Product Provider’s web site. Monthly repayments, once the base criteria are altered by the user, will be based on the selected products’ advertised rates and determined by the loan amount, repayment type, loan term and LVR as input by the user/you. *The Comparison rate is based on a $150,000 loan over 25 years. Warning: this comparison rate is true only for this example and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate. Rates correct as of May 29, 2022. View disclaimer.

Tic:Toc head of marketing and communications Laura Osti said there's now "no excuse" not to find a competitive interest rate.

"Tic:Toc wants to prove to Australians that refinancing to a lower rate isn’t a burden, it’s a right," she said.

"We’ve made the process fast and simple, so that Australians can take control and look after themselves by getting the best possible home loan for them."

Fixed loans continue their hiking trip

As well as some cuts, Tic:Toc also raised interest rates on some home loans, most notably in the fixed space.

Some highlights include:

  • Investment Fixed IO 1 Year: 43 basis point rise to 2.82% p.a. (2.85% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Live-In P&I Fixed 4 Years: 10 basis point rise to 2.59% p.a. (2.23% p.a. comparison rate*)

Tic:Toc is not the only lender to raise rates on fixed loans lately, with Westpac, Aussie, UBank, and Citi having done so in recent weeks.
