Lender unveils 3.49pc fixed rate

The global trend of cheap money is alive and well in Australia, with one lender slashing its one-year fixed rate by 80 basis points.

The Greater Building Society has reduced its one-year rate from 4.19 per cent to 3.49 per cent for new loans that are fully drawn before 30 June 2015.

The Greater is also waiving application, establishment, settlement and valuation fees on this product.

Chief executive Scott Morgan said the new rate is one of the lowest The Greater has ever offered.

The Greater offers home loans as well as other banking and financial services to around 250,000 customers in New South Wales and south-east Queensland.

The lender said its current volumes are strong, but has the capacity to welcome more home loan customers from these areas.

The rate move comes after The Greater passed on the Reserve Bank’s 25-basis-point cut on its variable home loans earlier this month.

According to comparison website finder.com.au, The Greater now has Australia’s cheapest one-year fixed rate.

It is followed by Newcastle Permanent (3.99 per cent), IMB (4.29 per cent), Beyond Bank (4.34 per cent) and Aussie Home Loans’ white-label product (4.39 per cent).

Newcastle Permanent has the cheapest two-year fixed rate (3.99 per cent), followed by The Greater (4.24 per cent), Aussie (4.39 per cent), and NAB and RAMS (both 4.59 per cent).
