Macquarie Bank slashes fixed rates by up to 0.35%

By Niko Iliakis ·

Macquarie Bank has made substantial changes across its range of fixed rate home loans today, cutting rates for 1, 2 and 3-year terms for both owner occupiers and investors by up to 0.35%. 

Below is a snapshot of the changes:

  • Owner Occupier, P&I loans with an LVR of ≤ 70% have been reduced by 0.20%.
  • Owner Occupier, P&I loans with an LVR of ≤ 80% have been reduced by 0.10%.
  • Investment, P&I loans with an LVR of ≤ 70% have been reduced by 0.35%.
  • Investment, IO loans with an LVR of ≤ 70% have been reduced by 0.25%.

Fixed rates for OO, P&I repayment loans with an LVR of ≤ 80% saw a reduction of 0.10%. That means new customers looking to lock in a Basic Home Loan for 3 years (P&I, ≤80% LVR) will now receive a 2.39% p.a. fixed rate (2.77% p.a. comparison rate*).

For those with a deposit of at least 30%, the rates on offer are even more generous. Following a 0.20% cut, rates for 3-year fixed terms (OO, P&I) now sit at 2.19% p.a. (2.60% p.a. comparison rate*).

That puts it among the lowest fixed rate home loans in our database at the time of writing. For comparison, the average 3-year fixed rate (OO, P&I) among home loans we track is currently 2.67% p.a.

Macquarie has also sharpened its offerings for investors, cutting rates for P&I loans with an LVR of ≤ 70% by 0.35%, and interest only loans with an LVR of ≤ 70% by 0.25%. Investors making P&I repayments will now be looking at rates as low as 2.59% p.a. (2.89% p.a. comparison rate*) 3-year terms.
