It was a fairly subdued week for home loan rate changes after some large institutions made changes last week.

St. George also introduced a special LMI offer, reducing the insurance to just $1 for those with a loan-to-value ratio (LVR) up to 85%.

This week, a few member-owned institutions cut home loan interest rates across a variety of home loans for investors and owner-occupiers, across both principal and interest (P&I) and interest-only (IO) payment terms.

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.
