Every month at Finder we analyse the mortgages in our database to find the home loans with the lowest interest rates.*
Our selection criteria ensure that the loans listed here are relevant for the majority of Australian borrowers. The rates on this page meet the following criteria:
- Principal and interest loans have a maximum LVR of 80%, meaning you need a 20% deposit (or lower in some cases).
- Mortgages have a minimum loan amount of $200,000 or lower and a maximum loan amount of at least $500,000 (meaning that most borrowers will have a loan size that qualifies for the product).
- Owner occupier fixed rates have a 3 year term (we've picked any year for fixed investor rates due to a smaller set of products available).
- Mortgages are currently available on Finder with rates correct as of 2 May 2019 (updated at the start of every month).

What if I've already got a mortgage but my rate is really high?
Most Australians borrowers don't check their mortgage rates. And that means you could be paying thousands of extra dollars in interest every year – for no reason at all.
But while your mortgage is a debt you're stuck with for a long time, you can easily switch lenders. Simply find a lower rate, make sure the mortgage suits your needs and you're eligible for it then apply (you'll need financial and identification documents, of course). If your new lender accepts your application, they will handle the changeover with your new lender. And for a few hours' work, you've saved yourself a chunk of money.
Learn how to refinance to a cheaper rate and start saving on your mortgage repayments.
