New home loan rate changes for Jan-Feb 2017

Jodie Humphries 13 January 2017 NEWS

out of cycle rate changesThe RBA has yet to meet for the first time in 2017 but lenders are opting to start the year with their own rate changes

As the RBA takes a break for January and begins to gather data for its meeting and announcement on 7 February 2017 lenders have taken it upon themselves to continue the trend that began late last year of making changes independent of what the RBA decides for the cash rate. We have already seen ME, Virgin Money and Suncorp have all already announced or implemented changes to their variable or fixed products or both.
