Earlier this month, ME also announced that it would drop its variable rates by 25bps for all of its existing customers, effective from 27 June.
The rate cuts have come off the back of the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) monetary policy adjustment, with several lenders, including the big four banks, passing on the reduction to their mortgage customers.
The RBA’s decision has prompted some lenders to drop rates to as low as 2.99 per cent – as offered by Greater Bank and UBank on their one-year owner-occupied fixed rates.
Non-bank lender Reduce Home loans has also announced the introduction of an owner-occupied variable home loan offering with an interest rate of 3.09 per cent, targeted at borrowers with 40 per cent deposit.
Mortgage House, which recently funded the launch of an owner-occupied variable home loan with an interest rate of 3.29 per cent through uno Home Loans, has also dropped its rate to 3.15 per cent in response to the RBA’s announcement.
