Lowest monthly mortgage rates for January 2020
Every month at Finder we analyse the mortgages in our database to find the home loans with the lowest interest rates.*
We've gathered up some of the market's lowest mortgage rates below. 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).
- Mortgages have a minimum loan amount of $200,000 or lower and a maximum loan amount of at least $500,000 (meaning that the average borrower will be eligible for the loan).
- Fixed rates have terms of between 1 and 5 years.
- Mortgages are currently available on Finder with rates correct at time of publication (updated 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.
