Fixed rate upheaval: UBank slashes 1, 3 and 5 year home loans

Online lender UBank has made a host of changes, effective today, to its suite of fixed home loan offerings, cutting rates by up to 0.25% for owner occupiers and a whopping 0.50% for investors.  

Among the highlights for owner occupiers, UBank’s UHomeLoan (Fixed) offer for borrowers making principal and interest repayments has dropped to just 2.99% (3.63% comparison rate*) for three year fixed terms and 3.19% (3.59% comparison rate*) for five year fixed terms.

UBank’s one year UHomeLoan (Fixed) rate offer for owner occupiers has remained steady at 2.99% (3.86% comparison rate*), but this is perhaps unsurprising given that it was cut by 0.60% last month following the RBA’s June rate cut.

In fact, as of the time of writing, the UHomeLoan (Fixed) deal is now offering the second lowest rate in the Mozo database for 1 year and 3 year terms, while the 5 year term rate is now the lowest in the database.
