Mortgage rate cutting war breaking out for February 2020

Westpac and other lenders have announced big rate cuts on home loans in the last few weeks. The RBA is expected to cut rates again as soon as Tuesday 4th February which will lead to many more lenders cutting rates across variable and fixed home loans for owner-occupiers and investors.

Right now, the best (lowest) home loan rates in Australia listed on InfoChoice are from smaller lenders.

Commonwealth Bank and NAB have special discount deals for first home buyers to go with their participation in the FHLDS. Westpac is among the market leaders in the fixed rate investor home loan market. ANZ Bank is promoting a $2,500 cash back offer for refinancers and new borrowers (Terms and conditions apply to all these deals and offers).

“In the popular 2 and 3-year fixed rate home loan market, lenders are competing particularly hard at the moment with some big recent rate cuts from some of the leading current lenders,” said Vadim Taube, Chief Executive of InfoChoice.com.au.

“Westpac now has fixed rates for investors set extremely low.”

“An owner occupier with a small 10 per cent deposit can now lock in sub-2.5% rates for three years,” said Vadim Taube.
