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.

It's important to note that ING also cut rates on a wide variety of products by up to 80 basis points.

However, the most substantial cuts were to fixed investment loans.

For example, the investor loan fixed for 5 years paying P&I was cut by 80 basis points down to 2.64% p.a. (3.93% p.a. comparison rate*).

Adelaide Bank home loan rate changes

Earlier in the week Adelaide Bank also hiked some fixed owner occupier loans by up to 15 basis points.

This affects both the 'SmartFix' and 'SmartSaver' product lines, fixed by between one and three years.

For example, the SmartFix P&I 3 Year rate is now 2.20% p.a. (2.83% p.a. comparison rate*), while the SmartSaver P&I 3 Year rate is also 2.20% p.a. (2.64% p.a. comparison rate*).

Where did the cuts happen?

In the past week, a few lenders did manage to cut a few home loan interest rates.

HSBC cut a few loans by up to 20 basis points, including the Investment 'Home Value' loan paying P&I with 80% LVR down to 2.69% p.a. (2.70% p.a. comparison rate*).

The equivalent 'Home Value' loan for owner occupiers up to 90% LVR was also cut by 10 basis points to 2.54% p.a. (2.55% p.a. comparison rate*).

These are promotional rates and could end at any time.

Community First Credit Union also cut a couple of fixed home loans by 71 basis points.

The 'Honeymoon' owner occupier product fixed for 1 year is now down to 2.44% p.a. (3.78% p.a. comparison rate*) when paying P&I.

The equivalent loan for investors was also cut by 71 basis points, down to 2.74% p.a. (4.08% p.a. comparison rate*).
