NAB increases up to 0.51%



Australia’s third-largest bank, NAB, has increased its fixed mortgage rates for homeowners and investors to 0.51%.

Despite today’s hikes, the NAB still has a rate below 2 percent – that’s a 1-year fixed rate at 1.99 percent.

RateCity.com.au Research Director Sally Tindall said: “Borrowers who were planning on taking a fixed rate loan from NAB, but had not yet locked in, are likely to be annoyed by this new.”

“The average new borrower who takes a 3-year fixed rate today on a $ 500,000 loan with NAB will pay $ 7,498 more in the first three years of their 30-year loan, compared to clients of the NAB. ‘old rate,’ she said.

“The NAB has kept its one-year fixed rate below 2%, however, it’s hard to imagine it being popular.

“Customers are unlikely to want to commit now, having to renegotiate their mortgage in 12 months in a fixed rate market that is expected to be significantly more expensive.

“The rate hikes are not going to stop there. Banks are expected to continue to increase several times over the next few months as they anticipate expected increases in funding costs.

“A month ago there were 162 fixed rates below 2%, today there are only 111, a decrease of 31%, and we expect that number to continue to drop. .

“By this time next year, customers will be looking to find a rate below 2%,” she said.
