RBA's supersized rate hikes spark refinance rush

Aussies looking to save money on their home loan are racing to refinance to a cheaper mortgage in the wake of the Reserve Bank's latest supersized rate hikes.

Challenger lenders like Macquarie, loans.com.au, Unloan and Ubank are proving particularly popular with refinancers looking to secure lower rates and cut the cost of their mortgage.

Online leader loans.com.au is generating strong refinance interest in its discounted Variable 70 Home Loan, while Unloan and OneTwo are offering low upfront rates and discounts as you pay down your loan.

The Mozo database reveals that there is still a huge gap between the lowest home loan rates and those offered by the banks, creating the perfect opportunity for savvy borrowers to shop around and potentially save thousands of dollars a year on their home loan by switching.

Mozo Money Expert Tom Godfrey said, "If you have a mortgage and your interest rate is costing you too much, now is the time to strike and see how much you can save by switching to one of the low rates on offer from smaller lenders."

With rates expected to continue rising over coming months, now is an ideal time to review your current home loan against the market. So if you'd like to crush your mortgage in 2022, take a look at some of the latest rates available right now and get switching!
