With home loan rates dropping to new record lows in 2021 in the wake of the Reserve Bank's recent rate cuts, there's never been a better time to compare your current home loan against the best on market and see how much you could save by switching.
Mozo's analysis reveals that there is now a huge difference between the average home loan rate and the best on the market. In fact, the average big 4 bank borrower with a $400K owner occupier home loan could now save up to $4,024 a year by switching. That's more than $120,000 in savings over the life of a 30 year loan!
Finding the best value home loans can be hard work given the mountain of choice on offer, which is why the Mozo experts are committed to doing the hard work for you. Read for our Editor's run down of some of the best value Mozo Experts Choice Winning home loans on the market today...
