Lyn McGrath, Group Executive of Retail Banking said, “Our fixed rates are some of the most competitive in the market right now and a great option for people looking to lock in some certainty.”
“We want to partner with customers to realise their home ownership dreams – whether that’s purchasing their first home, or expanding their property portfolio,” she added.
With a potential RBA rate cut right around the corner, many lenders have been preparing for change by cutting fixed rates on their home loan offerings. ING cut rates on it’s Orange Advantage and Mortgage Simplifier home loans earlier this week, following moves by lenders including loans.com.au, Tic:Toc, ME and Mortgage House.
