Forget fixed rate home loans with rates above 3%, the new competitive rate you should know about starts with the number 2.
Last week, HSBC announced that it’ll be cutting its 3-year fixed home loan to an impressive 2.75% (3.45% comparison rate*).
This hot offer is available on the HSBC Premier Fixed Rate Home Loan, for new customers looking to borrow above $50,000.
HSBC’s new and improved 3-year fixed interest rate is only available for owner-occupiers making principal and interest repayments, aligning it with the existing 1-year and 2-year fixed rates, which both sit at 2.75% as well.
“Locking in an interest rate can help first home buyers and existing borrowers stay on top of their finances, providing certainty over cashflow,” HSBC Australia’s Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Jessica Power said.
Just remember, you can only seal the deal on this competitive rate if you apply before the end of the year - the 31st of December 2019 to be exact!
Where else can I find a fixed home loan rates under 3%?
It’s no secret that since the multiple RBA cuts this year lenders have been quick to make adjustments to many of their fixed rate home loans.
Among some of the lenders who are now sitting pretty under the 3% mark after making cuts this month are online lenders like Tic:toc with a 2.84% (2.92% comparison rate*) 3 year fixed rate, ME Bank with a 2.88% (3.96% comparison rate*) 2 year fixed rate and UBank with the lowest 3 year fixed rate in the Mozo database at 2.69% (3.19 comparison rate*).
With many Aussie lenders opting to dump the big four in search of a better home loan deal, it might be time you got picky about your rate.
