Canstar releases updated five star home loan ratings

The financial comparison company Canstar has released its latest home loan ratings.

The company looked at a total of 5,394 property loans with 3,192 of those meeting its eligibility criteria.

The top 10% of loans assessed achieve a 5-Star Rating for “offering outstanding value” in the following profiles:

  • Owner occupier: An individual either refinancing an existing property, purchasing a new property or constructing a new property.
  • Investor: An individual either refinancing an existing investment property or purchasing an investment property.
  • Line of credit: An individual who borrows credit against their property as security.

Canstar’s Group finance expert, Steve Mickenbecker said that borrowers need to be wary of rising interest rates.

“Not all lenders have put up their rates yet, but most rely on wholesale funding to some degree and will be feeling the pressure of the increasing costs of those funds,” Mickenbecker said.

“The pressure will be flowing through to the profit margins and eventually most are likely to follow with rate hikes.

“Ahead of rate hikes, now is the time to make extra repayments and to take advantage of the banks’ low rate offers to see if you could be getting a better value deal.

“Whether you choose to move lenders or not, it’s a good time to consider fixing your loan’s interest rate to future proof repayments for two or three years while they are manageable.”
