Is it time to consider a smaller lender when investing in property instead of big four?

If you pay attention to the news, it’s understandable if your opinion of the big four banks has decreased. Many customers are feeling second fiddle to shareholders.  Especially since the Hayne Royal Commission didn’t pass interest rate cuts to their mortgage customers. The time of grinning and bearing it are over. Big 4 customers now have an array of options to finance their investment property.

Are the big banks really the villains the media is making them out to be?

Are you better going with a small bank?

First, you need to contact your lender. Find out how much of Tuesday’s rate cut they are going to pass on to you.  If the answer is less than 0.25%, then you have some thinking to do!

Only a small number of lenders delivering all of Tuesday’s recent interest rate cut to their customers. So, it’s likely that you there is a better deal out there for you.

According to comparison site finder there is a range of 0.59% between the variable interest rates between finance lenders (ranging from 2.69 – 3.28 %). Making the wrong choice or sticking with the status quo could be a very expensive mistake.

There are some great offers in the property market, particularly targeting new customers. Now is the time to start to think with your feet.
