Effective for new loans as of Friday, 7 March, NAB has dropped its interest rates on its Tailored Home Loan package for owner occupiers. It’s has decreased rates to 3.79 per cent for principal and interest loans and 4.34 per cent for interest-only loans. 

NAB has also dropped it fixed rates for investors in its Tailored Home Loan package, down to 3.99 per cent for principal and interest loans, and 4.18 per cent for interest-only loans. 

This follows moves by Adelaide Bank, which repriced its owner-occupier and investor home loans products for new business last week. 

For owner-occupied mortgages with a loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of less than 90 per cent, Adelaide has reduced rates on its SmartFit and SmartSaver products by up to 34 basis points, with rates now starting from 3.87 per cent.
