ME is the third lender to announce pricing changes following the Reserve Bank’s decision to keep the cash rate at 1.75 per cent at its monthly board meeting.

Bluestone Mortgages’ three-year fixed rate is now 30 basis points lower than the current variable rate, while its two-year fixed rate has been cut by 20 basis points.

Online lender Loans.com.au reduced its three-year fixed rate loan by 32 basis points to a record low 3.67 per cent, with a 3.88 per cent comparison rate.

The offer is available to owner-occupiers who are repaying principal and interest, with a maximum borrowing amount of $500,000. A $350 rate lock fee applies.
