The secret backdoor to better home loan rates with a big bank

Home owners across the country are feeling the bite of increased home loan repayments since the RBA began its war on inflation, and we are all looking for ways to save extra cash where we can. 

By far the biggest monthly expense is likely to be your mortgage and chances are that your current home loan is with a big bank. While big banks are great for stability, they do generally have higher interest rates so you want to make sure it’s worth paying extra for.

But what if we told you there was a way you could lower your repayments and still have the stability of a big bank?    

The massive shift in digital banking in Australia has led to the development of several new banking brands and products, and three of the most innovative  players - Unloan, Ubank and Up - are actually the offspring of some of the biggest players in the Australian banking industry - CommBank, NAB and Bendigo Bank. 

With competitive interest rates, unique features and speedy approvals these home loans are proving popular choices for Aussies of all ages and they could be your secret backdoor to a better deal on your home loan too.
