HSBC Australia launches ‘lowest rate’ home loan

HSBC Australia has introduced an owner-occupier mortgage with a rate of 3.59 per cent, which it says is the “lowest of all national banks”.

The lender’s Home Value Loan has a comparison rate of 3.60 per cent (based on a secured loan of $150,000 over the term of 25 years). According to data sourced from finder.com.au, it is the “lowest rate” of national banks (when compared to national with a branch network across multiple states/territories).

Speaking of the new rate, Alice Del Vecchio, head of mortgages and third-party distribution at HSBC Australia, commented: “Switching your home loan to a lower rate is one of the quickest ways to save money each month, and [it] can help you reduce the total size and length of your loan.

“[But] a new home loan is not just about a great rate. You should also remember to also look at the monthly fees, requirements for lenders mortgage insurance and the degree of flexibility, as a mortgage should be considered in its entirety.”

As such, Ms Del Vecchio outlined that the Home Value mortgage does not have set-up or monthly account keeping fees.
