ING raises rates on home loans

Online bank ING has announced that it will hike interest rates by 10 to 30 basis points on a number of its fixed and variable home loans, effective tomorrow (February 3).

The changes will increase the floating rates for the Bank’s Orange Advantage loan and the fixed rates for the Fixed Rate Loan and Fixed Rate Loan (with Orange Advantage) products.

As a result, the new lowest interest rates available on each loan will be:

loan interest rate
Orange Advantage 2.14% pa variable rate (2.50% pa comparison rate*) for owner-occupiers (
Fixed rate loan 2.44% pa fixed interest rate (3.97% pa comparable interest*) with a 1-year term for owner-occupiers (
Fixed Rate Loan (with Orange Advantage) 2.34% pa fixed interest rate (3.96% pa comparable interest*) with a 1-year term for owner-occupiers (

Since November, 78 different lenders tracked in the Mozo database have raised over 2,500 fixed mortgage rates, so ING’s move to raise a number of its own fixed rates comes as no surprise.

The bank’s decision to raise rates on its Orange Advantage variable rate loan is interesting, as most lenders have shifted variable rates the other way in recent months. In fact, ING only cut interest rates on this loan by up to 25 basis points in November.

However, interest rates on ING’s other adjustable rate loan – the Mortgage Simplifier – remain unchanged.

Owner-occupiers with an LVR below 80% can currently access rates as low as 1.99% pa (2.02% pa comparable rate*) with the Mortgage Simplifier, which is among the lowest variable rates available among lenders in the Mozo database .
