Despite the Reserve Bank opting to keep the cash rate steady at its most recent meeting, that hasn’t stopped lenders from cutting their home loan rates.

With more RBA rate cuts expected to come, these are likely not the last cuts to home loan interest rates we can expect to see.

ME Bank has hopped on board the bandwagon, trimming rates on its fixed and variable home loans for investors and owner-occupiers, effective from today.
