February’s 10 cheapest fixed rate home loans
Lock in a competitive rate to protect against future rises.
The Reserve Bank may have kept the official cash rate on hold when it met yesterday, but there's a growing consensus that the next move will be upwards. If you're worried about the potential for rising rates, or just want some certainty around your home loan repayment, it could be time to consider a fixed rate mortgage.
We've scoured our database to put together February's 10 cheapest fixed rate home loans available through finder.com.au. To make sure the loans we chose are helpful to the average borrower, we applied a few criteria:
- A minimum loan amount no greater than $250,000.
- A maximum loan amount of $500,000 or higher
- A three-year fixed interest rate
If you want the security that your home loan repayments won't rise in the near future, regardless of the path the RBA chooses, give the deals below a look.
