With many lenders raising rates, now might be the time to fix yours. Luckily there are plenty of home loans with rates well below 4%.

Fixed rate loans are rising in popularity with Australian borrowers. This is due partly to greater competition among lenders offering lower fixed rate products, but also because of fears that rates will soon rise.

In finder's monthly survey of economists, 100% of our experts predicted that the Reserve Bank will keep interest rates on hold for now.

At finder we've sorted through all the fixed rate loans in our database and compiled a top ten of our cheapest fixed rate loans. Keeping in mind the requirements of the average mortgage consumer, we've applied the following criteria to ensure these loans have low rates and are actually products most consumers will find useful.

Each loan:

  • Has a minimum loan amount no greater than $350,000
  • Has a maximum loan amount of more than $500,000
  • Is a 3-year fixed rate product

We've also excluded construction, investment and line of credit loans. Rates are correct as of November 8.

You can compare our ten cheapest rates in the table below, but we've also written up some mini-reviews of the top three. You can apply for any of these loans at the bottom of the page.
