Vadim Taube, CEO of leading Australian financial comparison site InfoChoice.com.au, said borrowers can lock in record low monthly repayments for the next five years.

“With these amazing low rates it is possible to lock in loan repayments on a $300,000 home loan of around $360 per week for the next five years,” said Vadim Taube, CEO of InfoChoice.com.au

“Plenty of people will be looking at the low monthly repayments now being charged on fixed and variable rate loans and deciding that buying might be cheaper than renting.

“Fixed rates are clearly now being set with the future in mind,” said Vadim Taube.

“Banks are expecting the RBA to keep rates low for years. The RBA is already expected to cut rates as soon as Melbourne Cup Day.”

“Variable rate home loans can change rates up or down but a fixed rate will stay the same until the end of the term,” said Vadim Taube.
