5 Year Fixed Rate War – ANZ NAB CBA and Westpac


No sooner I wrote that Commonwealth Bank reduced their 5 year fixed rate loans to 4.99%, NAB and Westpac also reduced their rate down to 4.99%.

All these loans are available under their packaged loans where there is an annual fee to be paid, up to $395 depending on the lender.

ANZ and other lenders have yet to reduce their 5 year fixed rate but the pressure from the other majors will see better deals in the coming months.

Variable Interest Rates On Hold – CBA ANZ NAB Westpac expect no changes

The Reserve Bank of Australia announced yesterday at 20pm that they will leave the official cash rate unchanged.

We expect that the major lenders (ANZ, NAB, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac) will therefore leave their variable interest rates unchanged as well, but will be monitoring in case of any changes outside of the official rate.

Fixed rates move independently of the RBA decision and we can keep you up to date with changes.

Variable Interest Rates On Hold, Fixed are Falling

The RBA announced this afternoon they have decided to leave the official RBA cash rate unchanged. It looks like that rates will remain stable for some time yet according to many economists.

We expect that lenders will therefore leave their variable interest rates unchanged as well, but will be monitoring in case of any changes outside of the official rate.

We have noticed that many lenders such as ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB, ING Direct and Westpac have been decreasing their fixed interest rates. There are some good bargains to be had if you are seeking a fixed rate loan.

Interest Rates Down Today by 0.25% – ANZ, Westpac, NAB, CBA, ING, Suncorp

UPDATE: NAB, Commonwealth Bank,  BOQ  and ING Direct drop home loan rates by 0.25%, Westpac by 0.28%

The Reserve Bank of Australia announced a 0.25% official cut to interest rates, down to 2.50%. The lowest in Australia’s history.

Although this is welcome news for variable interest rate home loan and other mortgage holders; however, it is not so good news for the state of  Australia’s slowing economy as the RBA reduces rates to help pick up economic activity.

One of the major banks has made comments about the cost of lending rising so we will have to wait and see how the major banks; Commonwealth Bank, ANZ, NAB and Westpac, will reduce their interest rates.

Below shows how much each lender passes on the interest rate cut. Interest rates will be updated on our main website once each lender passes on the reduction.

ANZ cuts Variable Rates by 0.27%

ANZ decided to decrease their variable interest rate for home and investment loans by 0.27%  which is .02% more than the other banks.

I see on twitter and in news reports praising the bank for being generous. Let us not forget the bank has increased its margin by 0.49% since November 2010. So the 0.02% is nothing compared to what they have taken.

This is not to say the NAB, Westpac, Commonwealth Bank and many other lenders are any better as they have all been guilty of not passing on full rate cuts or increasing interest rates.

It is always best to check with a qualified mortgage consultant to see if you are getting the best deal on your mortgage by submitting a mortgage enquiry.
