All of September 2018’s out-of-cycle home loan rate changes

Adam Smith 3 September 2018 NEWS

dollar stop1The first of the big banks has already announced a September rate change. What lies in store for the rest of the month?

Westpac may have heralded a wave of rising home loan rates when it recently hiked its variable rates by 0.14%. With rising funding costs, the major banks have already claimed to be under pressure to lift rates.

Other lenders certainly haven't been waiting on the major banks to make their own moves. In August, 27 lenders in Finder's database moved on rates. This made the month the busiest of the year for rate moves.

If your lender raises rates, it could be time to refinance your home loan. We'll keep you updated on all of September's out-of-cycle rate moves in the table below. As rates begin moving upward, keep your eye out for a better deal.
