Lenders big and small are dropping variable home loans as the cash rate falls to 1.00%.

This page contains rate cuts for July 2019. Head to this page to see which lenders are passing on the latest RBA cut (October 2019)

The Reserve Bank of Australia has once again cut the cash rate. This means home loan rate cuts, and in the last month, at least 23 lenders have cut their variable mortgage rates.

Here's a list of the lenders who have said they will pass on part or all of the 0.25% rate cut, the date the cut will take effect and their lowest variable owner-occupier home loan. Keep in mind that a lender's lowest variable rate offer might not currently be on the market if the lender is cutting the rate a week or two from now.

Loyalty to your lender could be costing you thousands

We will continue to update this table as more lenders announce their responses to the cash rate cut.

*This table will be updated as more rate cuts are announced. Cuts are for variable owner-occupier rates only and won't necessarily affect all of a lender's products. Rates in the lowest offers column may not be available until the effective date.

Lenders are not obligated to pass on the rate cut to borrowers. And if you're on a fixed rate mortgage, then this news won't affect your home loan at all. But if you have a mortgage, here's what you should do regardless of your situation:

  1. Check your current interest rate. If you're on a variable rate, you might be surprised to see that it has changed since you last checked.
  2. Compare your rate against other offers on the market. Rates change all the time and the mortgage market is very competitive. As a comparison site, we're obviously going to say this but it's still true: compare, compare, compare.
  3. If you find a better mortgage offer, then you should consider switching to this product by refinancing your loan. There's absolutely no point being loyal to your lender if they're not giving you the best deal.

If you don't want to go through the application process that refinancing requires, you could also ask your lender to lower your interest rate. It's possible to negotiate with your lender, and the worst that will happen is they'll say no. In which case, you should look at refinancing.
