While uncertain economic times can lead borrowers to look into home loans with fixed interest rates, the number of lenders offering decade-long fixed interest rates can be counted on one hand.
Based on RateCity research, there are just 33 home loan offers currently available with 10-year fixed interest rates, from the following lenders:
While this is the lowest of these rates that are currently available, it remains above the average variable rate for home loans on RateCity, which was 4.64% at the end of March 2018.
It’s important to remember that home loans with low interest rates aren’t always the best options for every household, as different features and benefits may provider greater or lesser value based on an individual’s financial circumstances.
