“It is a very competitive market at the moment and there can be great benefit in people shopping around and re-examining their home loan provider and product periodically,” he said.

The survey also found that 32.4 per cent of respondents looking to borrow or refinance within the next six months would select a fixed-rate home loan. This compares to 28.3 per cent six months ago.

“The results from the survey are distinct indications of the instability and uncertainty in the market at the moment,” said Naylor.
