Variable Rate Home Loans
What is a Variable Rate Home Loan
A Variable Rate Home Loan is one where rates can vary at any time due to market force changes. Interest rates in Australia are set by the Resrve Bank. Should the Reserve Bank make a change to interest rates, then this will impact the cost that Lenders can obtain their funds and cause them to also review / amend the rates tey charge to borrowers.
There are many other factors that can impact the cost of funds for a Lender and it is possible to see interest rate movements occur outside the cycle of any Reserve Bank announcements.
