The Commonwealth Bank has reduced some of its home and investment home loan fixed interest rates by up to 0.2% pa, effective from Monday 15 July for new loans. The Bank’s three year fixed rate falls to 6.79% pa, while the five year fixed rate drops to 7.19% pa, making both rates the lowest offered by the major banks.

The Commonwealth Bank has also reduced its very popular introductory One Year Guaranteed Rate by 0.2% to 5.79% pa.

The Bank’s new fixed home loan interest rates are:

Executive General Manager Retail Customer Services, Nick Kennett said: "The Commonwealth Bank has taken the opportunity to offer these highly competitive fixed rates due to decreases in wholesale markets rates. These rates represent a great opportunity for customers to lock in their repayments at a time of economic uncertainty. And if taken as part of a ’split rate’ customers enjoy both security and flexibility".
