This reduction takes effect immediately for new home loans, and on or after 25th August 2003 for existing variable home loans.
On a table mortgage of $100,000 over a 20 year term, this equates to a reduction of $15.20 per month.

6 months 5.99% p.a.
1 year 6.20% p.a.
2 years 6.50% p.a.
3 years 6.75% p.a.
4 years 6.95% p.a.
5 years 7.00% p.a.
This variable rate
reduction is a result of a reduction in the Reserve Bank
Official Cash Rate announced last week.
