NAB cuts 5-year fixed rates by 0.55%

National Australia Bank made a number of changes to its fixed rate suite today, cutting rates for both owner occupiers and investors by between 5 and 55 basis points.

The major bank reserved the largest cut for the 5-year term on the Tailored Home Loan (Choice Package). As of today, owner occupiers looking to fix long-term can now access rates as low as 2.24% p.a. (3.66% p.a. comparison rate*).

Today’s reductions also saw headline rates for 3-year terms dip below the 2% mark, bringing them in line with NAB’s 4-year option, which has offered 1.98% p.a. (3.69% p.a. comparison rate*) since November last year.

NAB executive of home ownership, Andy Kerr said the new rates are among the lowest offered by the bank.

“Both our 3- and 4-year fixed rates for owner-occupiers paying principal & interest are now below 2 per cent, a level that would have seemed unbelievable just a few years ago. These changes will also offer our lowest ever rate to property investors,” he said.

Owner occupiers making principal and interest repayments:

  • 1 year: 2.09% p.a. (4.16% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 2 year: 2.04% p.a. (3.99% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 3 year: 1.98% p.a. (3.83% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 4 year: 1.98% p.a. (3.69% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 5 year: 2.24% p.a. (3.66% p.a. comparison rate*)

Investors making principal and interest repayments:

  • 1 year: 2.54% p.a. (4.73% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 2 year: 2.44% p.a. (4.53% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 3 year: 2.44% p.a. (4.37% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 4 year: 2.94% p.a. (4.38% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • 5 year: 2.94% p.a. (4.28% p.a. comparison rate*)

Current interest rate settings have fast-tracked plans to buy for thousands of Australians, with promising economic signs leading NAB to predict a 10 per cent increase in capital city property prices over 2021.

“For the past few months home lending applications have been at their highest level in several years as buyers flock back into the market after a quiet period through the nationwide lockdowns,” Kerr said.

“We expect the current trends to continue in the near-term given the historic low rates and government support programs.”
