More lenders slash their fixed home loan rates following RBA cut

Since the RBA rate cut two weeks ago, lenders have been slashing their fixed home loan rates like it’s going out of fashion.  

Both ME and loans.com.au have dropped their fixed home loan rates today for new owner occupier, principal and interest borrowers.

For their 2 year fixed rate offerings, loans.com.au reduced their rate by 0.29%, dropping it to 3.19% (3.67% comparison rate*), while ME made a 0.31% cut, lowering their rate to 3.43% (4.26% comparison rate*).
