The lowest three-year fixed-rate mortgages as ANZ lifts to 6.34%

The lowest three-year fixed-rate mortgage currently available is 5.94% on offer from the Holiday Coast Credit Union, which primarily services the Holiday Coast and Hunter regions of NSW and has about 32,000 members.

The most recent lender to cut its fixed rates was credit union CUA, which cut the interest rate on its three-year fixed-rate loan on February 13, from 6.34% to 5.95%.
