Anyone looking to refinance or move up the property ladder has a smorgasbord of options available to them nowadays, but one major bank lender is going out of its way to stand out from the pack. HSBC has cut the variable rate on its popular Home Value Loan to an ultra-low 2.19% (2.20% comparison rate*) for borrowers with 30% deposit or equity.
Not only is this the equal lowest variable rate currently on offer from any major bank tracked by Mozo for borrowers with 70% LVR, but HSBC is sweetening the deal even further with $3,288 cashback for refinancers.
Currently the most generous home loan cashback offer in the Mozo database, it’s available to refinancers borrowing $250,000 or more but you’ll need to be quick and apply before 31 July 2021.
Of course, HSBC is not the only home lender to cut rates to new lows lately, and there are some hot offers on the market that home loan hunters would do well to have on their radar. Below we’ve compiled a few options to suit any type of borrower.
