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.

Northern Inland Credit Union introduced a couple of different home loans with an advertised interest rate below 2%, adding to the list of near 40 lenders to have already done so.

For example, the new 'Dream Value' home loan is 1.89% p.a. (2.28% p.a. comparison rate*).

The loan is variable, for owner occupiers paying principal & interest (P&I) with a maximum LVR of 60%, and is offered to new borrowers as a 'special offer' only. 

This is one of only a few products under 2% on a variable basi, as many are on a fixed basis instead.

For investors, the lowest rate to get a cut was the two year fixed loan paying P&I, cut by 21 basis points down to 2.18% p.a. (3.92% p.a. comparison rate*).
