Lenders act quickly on rate cut

Font size :
 A number of lenders have made sure they acted quickly on the Reserve Bank’s reduced rate.
 
The Bank of Queensland (BOQ), ME Bank, and ING Direct have all committed to providing the lowest rates possible for homebuyers, with BOQ announcing a cut to 5.76% for variable home loans and 7.25% for business term loans.
 
BOQ customers, however, will have to wait until 24 February to enjoy the low rates.
 
ME Bank’s cut is scheduled to start on 20 February, which will allow customers to benefit from the 5.13% variable rate. ING Direct, the nation’s fifth largest home loan lender, also pledged a 0.25% rate cut.
 
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Westpac are the only major lenders that have passed on the rate cut so far. ANZ Bank promises to announce its stand on Friday. 
 

With interest rates at their lowest for more than 50 years, there are some great rates available. The best thing to do is to compare rates from all the lenders. Let us help take the leg work out of doing this - Compare Home Loans now
