ING DIRECT will lower the interest rate on its fixed rate residential home loans by up to 0.50% p.a.
Effective 10 February 2015, ING DIRECT’s new fixed rates will be:
- 4.49% p.a. for 5 year fixed
- 4.59% p.a. for 1-4 year fixed
ING DIRECT Executive Director of Customer John Arnott says the lower fixed rates are good for customers who want certainty over their repayments.
“Having the peace of mind of knowing exactly what your repayments will be can be a very effective way of planning your household finances,” Mr Arnott said.
Customers can also receive a further 0.10% p.a. discount off the fixed rate portion of their home loan when they take an Orange Advantage (100% interest offset) variable rate home loan as part of their application.
ING DIRECT has a mortgage book of $38 billion.
