May’s 10 cheapest fixed rate home loans
In spite of inaction from the RBA, now could be a great time to lock in your home loan rate.
The Reserve Bank met expectations at its May meeting when it left the official cash rate untouched at 1.50%. The latest decision marks 19 consecutive meetings with inaction from the RBA.
With variable rates near record lows and the RBA predicted to keep the official cash rate on hold for the foreseeable future, you could be forgiven for thinking now is not the time to fix your home loan rate. But fixed rates aren't about taking a punt on the official cash rate. They're about security and peace of mind.
Fixed rates allow you to accurately budget for your home loan repayments. You'll have the certainty that your repayments won't change for the duration of the fixed term.
