On the heels of Westpac’s announcement only yesterday, NAB’s fixed home loans have joined the May climb upwards. Both owner-occupier and investment interest rates have been lifted, upticking by 60 basis points on 1-year terms. 

Below, the table shows the new fixed rates for NAB’s Tailored Home Loan (Choice Package) for owner-occupied mortgages with P&I repayments (LVR < 95%).

NAB’s latest move aligns with the increasing cost of home loans overall, as numerous lenders – not just the Big Four – have also announced variable raises in line with the RBA cash rate. The era of pandemic stimulus and low interest seems to be winding down, which is bad news for the 1.1 million borrowers who have never experienced an official cash rate above 0.10%. 

However, it’s not time to hit the panic button yet. While the housing market may be cooling down due to mounting mortgage costs, anticipating these fluctuations and budgeting for rate changes could see borrowers through. Price rises are inevitable over time.

Consider this latest hike a reminder that comparing home loan interest rates is the name of the game – and if push comes to shove, refinance.
