Reduced Rates

Macquarie is reducing their fixed home loan rate offering across all loan types, terms, and LVR tiers.

These rates will be effective for new loans from Wednesday 11 November 2020.

The following reductions are being made:

  • four- and five-year fixed-rate loans by 0.25%, and all other fixed-rate loans by 0.10%.
  • 2.09% p.a. for one- and two-year terms for owner-occupier P&I loans at 80% LVR
  • 2.09% p.a. for one-, two- and three-year terms for owner-occupier P&I loans at 70% LVR
  • 2.39% p.a. for one-, two- and three-year terms for investment P&I loans at 70% LVR.

The fixed-rate your client gets at approval is what they'll get at settlement if the loan settles within 90 days - no lock rate fee required.
