The home loan rate cut party is alive and kicking, as lenders big and small drop fixed rates to gob-smacking new lows, despite the Reserve Bank's decision to keep the cash rate on hold for the time being.
Popular bank and non-bank lenders like ANZ, Suncorp, loans.com.au and UBank have all cut fixed rates in recent weeks, giving borrowers the opportunity to secure peace of mind over their mortgage repayments by locking in amazingly low rates well below 2.90% for two or even three years.
The super sharp fixed rates now on offer now match the ultra low variable rates we've been seeing since the Reserve Bank cut the offical cash rate in October, making now the perfect time to review the fixed and variable deals on offer to see how much you could be saving on your home loan.
So if you'd like to crush your mortgage in 2019 and beyond, take a look at some of the top deals on the market right now and get switching!
