The ME home loans to get the biggest haircut were interest only (IO) investor home loans, including:

  • Inv Flexible Fixed 4 Years IO: 50 basis point cut to 3.34% p.a. (4.50% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Inv Flexible Fixed 5 Years IO: 50 basis point cut to 3.34% p.a. (4.38% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Member Package Inv Flexible Fixed 4 Years IO: 50 basis point cut to 3.19% p.a. (3.69% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Member Package Inv Flexible Fixed 5 Years IO: 50 basis point cut to 3.19% p.a. (3.68% p.a. comparison rate*)

These rates apply to borrowers with a maximum loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of 80%, meaning borrowers either need at least a 20% deposit, or the equivalent of 20% equity in the home.

All of ME Bank's cuts in the past week were to investor loans, with other cuts by between 29 and 40 basis points.

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.
