Show Your Card & Save please present your RACT card prior to your quotation or purchase Leading Tasmanian home loan lender B&E Personal Banking has welcomed national research that urges people to shop around to get a better deal on their home loan. CEO Paul Ranson said recent financial comparisons conducted by Infochoice.com.au clearly showed that people could get a better deal on their mortgage repayments if they shopped around and looked at what was on offer particularly from smaller institutions. “Alarmingly, the research shows that the reluctance of Australian consumers to shop around for the best deal is costing them $2.7 billion in excess mortgage repayments each year,” Mr Ranson said. Infochoice reported that despite the major banks continuing to offer significantly higher interest rates than other smaller competitors in the marketplace, 90% of new home loans were cur rently being provided by the majors. “B&E’s standard variable rate is currently 7.20% which compares ver y favourably to the major banks, where the Tasmanians urged to shop around for the best home loan deal var iable rate ranges up to 7.36%. These figures clearly support Infochoice’s findings,” Mr Ranson said. “Importantly, our most popular home loan, Topline, remains a market leader offering consumers a rate of 6.62% on home loans over $300,000 and 6.72% on home loans over $150,000. “As a Tasmanian financial institution, we continue to be committed to keeping our rates as low as possible and providing value for our members as opposed to profit for shareholders,” Mr Ranson said.
