In a rates dream for Aussie borrowers, the home loan party is showing no signs of stopping as lenders launch new sizzling hot deals to take advantage of the rate cut momentum created by the Reserve Bank and tempt more borrowers to switch and save.

Online and rival lenders are leading the charge, with the likes of UBank and ME all slashing rates in recent weeks. While the average home loan rate currently sits at 3.93%, borrowers who are prepared to switch can now access ultra low variable rates from under 3.00%. Fixed rates are also tumbling and borrowers can now lock in a rate starting with a '2' for 1 or even 3 years.

With lenders rolling out the red carpet, savvy borrowers could save tens of thousands on their home loan by refinancing. So if you'd like to crush your mortgage in 2019, take a look at some of the top deals on the market right now and get switching!
