September RBA rate hike: Which banks have increased home loan rates?

people jumping off towers as the cash rate goes up

Last Updated: 3:217 pm 12 September

The latest Reserve Bank Australia cash rate increase is 50 basis points, bringing the official rate to 2.35% as of September 2022.

This is the fifth increase of the year, with possibly more to come before 2023. Westpac and NAB economists predict that the official cash rate might reach a high of 3.35%.

With every cash rate hike, we’ve seen lenders increase their interest rates for variable home loan rates, fixed home loan rates, savings accounts and term deposits. In August, we saw most lenders tracked in Mozo’s database pass the entire 50bp hike to customers with few exceptions. Just like in previous months, chances are that financial institutions will once again pass the rate hike to their customers.

Which lenders have moved on home loan interest rates?

Response times to today’s announcement will vary between lenders. To help you keep track of significant changes, this page will be regularly updated with the size of the rate hike and when it’ll come into effect from popular lenders.

Below we’ve put a snapshot of the average owner occupier^ home loan rates in Mozo’s database as of 6 September 2022 to reference. These numbers are likely to jump in the coming weeks.
