ING and Suncorp cut rates to variable home loans

cash rate cuts to home loan variable rates

Earlier this month the RBA put a hold on the rate hike cycle, much to the relief of many mortgage holders. With rates currently sitting at an average variable rate of 6.58%, and a general feeling that we’re coming closer to the end of the hike cycle, some borrowers might be wondering if there are any banks that have begun to cut their rates.

ING and Suncorp cut variable home loans rates

While some providers are continuing to hike their variable and fixed rate home loans in July, challenger banks ING and Suncorp made a range of cuts across their variable home loan products.

ING cut interest rates across its  owner-occupier variable rate loans, with the Mortgage Simplifier and Orange Advantage products seeing rates cut by 10 basis points. Investor home loans also saw rates reduced across the same products with a 15 basis point reduction.

In a similar move, Suncorp also made the decision to lower its variable rates for the Standard Variable Home Loan Special for owner occupiers (LVR of <60%) by 10 basis points, by 15 basis points for the 60-70% LVR tier and by 5 basis points for 70-80% LVR . Investor loans of the same product were also cut by 5 basis points.
