3-year fixed home loan rates now at lowest absolute levels in three years. New ABS data shows highest number of fixed home loans written since May 2008. Borrowers need to focus on the gap with variable: could be $1,600 worse off by fixing if variable rates fall further!

^Words such as "top", "best", "cheapest" or "lowest" are not a recommendation or rating of products. This page compares a range of products from selected providers and not all products or providers are included in the comparison. There is no such thing as a 'one- size-fits-all' financial product. The best loan, credit card, superannuation account or bank account for you might not be the best choice for someone else. Before selecting any financial product you should read the fine print carefully, including the product disclosure statement, fact sheet or terms and conditions document and obtain professional financial advice on whether a product is right for you and your finances.
