Which Banks are Passing on the Rate reduction

Posted by Simon Dehne on August 4, 2016 in Latest News with No Comments

Below is a list of which banks have announced rate cuts as 3rd August 2016

However, the lending market has become increasingly more complex, with some banks, not offering the same reductions for interest only loans.

For example, Westpac has announced  a rate reduction of 0.14% effective from the 23/8/16 for its variable rate home loan. However, if the loan is interest only the rate reduction is only 0.10%. So Westpac is actually holding back 0.05% of the rate reduction given by the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia)…this is a little sneaky.

In our comparison site on our website, the rate reductions will only show the new rates once the new rates have taken effect.

My advice if you are in the market to purchase a new property or wanting to see if you can save money on your current loan, it is very wise to check what your bank will be offering as a result of this rate recent reduction.

Better still, why not use our comparison site and allow one of our brokers who have access to over 30 lenders to help you find the right deal for your circumstances.

Plus a number of banks are offering refinance specials where they will pay you money to transfer across…so it is wise to check. After all, will your bank tell you that another bank has a better deal.
