Important Information and Comparison Rate Warning

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. Some products will be marked as promoted, featured or sponsored and may appear prominently in the tables regardless of their attributes. All products will list the LVR with the product and rate which are clearly published on the product provider’s website. 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 . View disclaimer.

Move Bank also raised its 'Complete Package' home loan for owner occupiers fixed for one year paying principal and interest (P&I) by 10 basis points.

It now sits at 2.09% p.a. (3.12% p.a. comparison rate*).

Raising home loan rates has been an emerging trend of late, with UBank and Aussie having done so recently.

Westpac also hiked four and five-year fixed loans by up to 30 basis points towards the end of April.

There are various reasons for this, including the Reserve Bank signalling the cash rate will rise in 2024, and potentially earlier, as well as the Term Funding Facility - which provides cheap funding for banks - rolling back in June.
