Fixed Rate Home Loans Increase for 3 & 5 Year Terms

For the third consecutive month the RBA has left the cash rate on hold. We are however seeing an upward trend within the 3 to 5 year fixed rates. It would appear that the Banks appetite for discounting in this product segment is over. 

The big four banks have all recently increased their fixed rate offerings. Remember, fixed rates are generally more expensive than variable rates. After all, you're paying for peace of mind. When considering a fixed rate:

  • check the fees associated with the loan;
  • the costs if you exit the loan early;
  • check if you can make extra repayments; and
  • whether you can have an offset account linked to the loan.
Aren't sure whether to fix or not?
If you aren't sure whether to fix or not, as a general rule you do have the option of splitting the loan between fixed and variable – so you can enjoy the flexibility of both worlds.

And there are some great variable rates still on offer if you know where to look…

Great variable rates are still on offer!

As always, please feel free to call us at any time if you wish to review your current finances
