Is it getting hot in here? Maybe it’s time to strip… down your home loan interest rate. 

Over the past month, Aussie mortgage lenders have made a bunch of cuts to variable home loan rates, leaving potential borrowers spoilt for choice. 

One of the cuts came from major bank ANZ which dropped its Simplicity PLUS Special Offer by 12 basis points to 3.12% (3.16% comparison rate*). 

But the action didn’t stop there. Here are some of the other lenders that cut variable rates last month: 

Variable Rate home loan cuts

“With a potential RBA cut around the corner, interest rates have been trending downwards across a bunch of banking products, including home loans,” Mozo Banking Expert, Peter Marshall said. 

“This is great news for borrowers who are looking to snag a low rate on their home loan, because there are now plenty of competitive options for them on the market.”

Currently, the average variable interest rate in the Mozo database, for an owner occupier paying principal and interest, is 3.73%. The lowest, however, is the 2.69% (2.71% comparison rate*) being offered by Reduce Home Loans with its Low Rider home loan

But Reduce Home Loans isn’t the only mortgage lender offering a hot deal under 3.00%. 

According to Mozo’s database there are 24 home loan providers that are currently offering a variable rate lower than 3.00% - some of which are solely online or smaller lenders, challenging big banks with competitive mortgage products. 

So if you can handle the heat and are on the hunt for a sizzling home loan, check out the table below for some killer mortgage options or head over to our home loan comparison tool.
