ING has blown competitors out of the water after announcing massive rate cuts across its investment home loans today.
The ING Mortgage Simplifier for investors taking out a principal and interest (P&I) loan of over $150,000, fell by 50 basis points (bp) from 3.19% (3.22% comparison rate*) to a stellar 2.69% (2.72% comparison rate*).
This rate change means it’s jumped in rankings to be the second lowest basic variable rate offer in the Mozo database among investment loans (excluding those with offset accounts) - tied with People’s Choice Credit Union’s Basic Variable Home Loan and 10 bp behind Credit Union SA’s Discounted Home Loan Special Offer.
Or if we also factor in home loans with offset accounts, this is where the ING Mortgage Simplifier now sits:
Top variable rates for investors (incl. offset account offers)
|Rate as of 23 October 2020 (for LVRs up to 80%)||Lender||Home loan|
|2.54% (2.55% comparison rate*)||homeloans.com.au||Low Rate Home Loan (includes offset account)|
|2.59% (2.61% comparison rate*)||Credit Union SA||Discounted Home Loan Special Offer|
|2.59% (2.62% comparison rate*)||Homestar||Star Classic Investment Variable Home Loan|
|2.59% (2.63% comparison rate*)||Easy Street||Standard Variable Home Loan - New Money Offer (includes offset account)|
|2.59% (2.64% comparison rate*)||Homestar||Variable Rate Loan (includes offset account)|
|2.64% (2.98% comparison rate*)||Resimac||Prime Flex (includes offset account)|
|2.69% (2.70% comparison rate*)||People's Choice Credit Union||Basic Variable Home Loan|
|2.69% (2.72% comparison rate*)||ING||Mortgage Simplifier|
ING slashed another 50 bp off its Orange Advantage (Package), reducing its variable rate from 3.24% (3.57% comparison rate*) to 2.74% (3.08% comparison rate*) for investors making P&I repayments on loan amounts over $150,000.
The ING Orange Advantage is now 102 bp below the average variable investment loan rate of 3.76%, while the gap between the ING Mortgage Simplifier and the average is an even wider 107 bp.
To put these numbers into perspective, for an investor making P&I repayments on a $400,000 loan over 25 years, you can lower your monthly repayments by $216 or $226 just by going with the ING Orange Advantage or ING Mortgage Simplifier respectively, instead of the average.
Short term fixed rates also slashed
ING also brought down the axe on its Fixed Rate Loan, making 45 bp rate cuts to its two-year and three-year terms. Both rates have now dropped to 2.49% (4.38% and 4.20% comparison rates*).
While ING still hasn’t made it to the top five for investor fixed rates, the cuts today place it much closer to the lead.
For comparison, the current short-term fixed rate leader is Police Credit Union with two-year and three-year fixed rates from 2.19% (4.06% and 3.89% comparison rates*). The ING Fixed Rate Loan sits 30 bp above that.
Compared to investor fixed rate averages, ING is now far ahead. It’s 35 bp below the two-year term average of 2.84% and 37 bp below the three-year average of 2.86%.
