Frequently Asked Questions
Below are a few popular questions. If none of them addresses your needs or for any other purpose please use our contact form to reach us.
RateCity compares more than 16,000 financial products, based of different criteria, to help consumers find a product to suit their needs. Every customer has a different set of needs and desires, which means no one loan or account will suit every customer, but our hope is that you will be able to find something that works for you.
RateCity is not a lender, which means we don’t broker home loans. Instead, we offer a list of lenders for you to choose from and compare them based on their interest rates and fees. The process of applying for the loan is over to you.
That is ultimately up to you. RateCity does not offer personal advice and acknowledges that there is no such thing as the perfect loan. We do however help you to make an informed decision by lining up product features and costs side by side.
RateCity is frequently in the media as an expert source of financial information and commentary. We also offer journalists data on interesting trends. Our commentary has appeared on Nine News, Seven News, Ten News, Sky News, the Daily Telegraph, News.com.au, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age, the Daily Mail and many others. If you’re a journalist with a media inquiry, please get in touch on the media number listed above.
RateCity regularly writes commentary on financial matters for websites for free. All we ask for in return is a link to the RateCity home page or another RateCity page that provides value to your readers. For content requests, please email email@example.com.
RateCity is a consumer service and we pride ourself on providing free, accurate and informative comparisons for our users. In order to provide that service, we make money in in two ways. The first is by generating qualified leads for financial institutions. That means when you click on the ‘go to site’ button for a specific institution, RateCity may receive a referral fee for the click or more likely when you do something, such as apply for a loan. The second way we make money is through display advertising.
We take accuracy very seriously. If you notice a rate that is incorrect, please contact our general inquiry line or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

RateCity will not retain any personal details unless we have your express permission. Occasionally we collect and analyse anonymised visitation data to help improve our website.

RateCity has built a suite of comparison tables, home loan calculators and other personal finance calculators for third party sites to use for free. The comparison tables and calculators are mobile responsive and the colour schemes are customisable to your site. Simply hit ’embed results’ in the top corner of rate table pages or at the bottom of the site for widgets and you will receive a code to copy to your website.
