More lenders slash their fixed home loan rates following RBA cut

By Polly Fleeting ·

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*).

ME has also reduced interest rates from 0.10% to 0.30% across their fixed investment home loan products, for both principal and interest, and interest only loans.  

But these new rates aren’t the lowest around, Greater Bank cut their fixed home loan rate for their 1 year term to an impressive 2.99%, and then UBank matched it by also offering the same rate on their 1 year fixed home loan.
