No changes, so what's the best rate?

There continues to be very few changes to home loan rates at the moment. What's the best option currently?
Here's what Westpac said in today's economic update: "For borrowers with a deposit of 20% or more, the best value lies in the two-year rate or shorter terms. Three to five-year rates seem high relative to where we think short-term rates are going to go over that time. That said, these rates are most likely to be pressured higher by global market trends, so borrowers who prefer the security of a longer term still have a chance to lock in at historically quite low levels."

Here is the two-year rates from lowest to highest.

Warehouse looks to the mortgage market

The bargains everybody's supposed to get at The Warehouse may very soon extend to getting your mortgage from a red shed near you.

The bargains everybody's supposed to get at The Warehouse may very soon extend to getting your mortgage from a red shed near you.

The discount retailer is "pretty much there" but still another couple of weeks away from reaching a final agreement with its partner over a package of financial services to be delivered from its stores, says chief executive Greg Muir.

A wide range of financial services are being considered including mortgages.

"Mortgages are certainly amongst the products we're considering. We're considering everything financial institutions cover," Muir says.

The Warehouse had said it would be finalising its banking plans about now, but the negotiations have been held up by key members of each team taking annual leave, he says.

Muir won't say who the retailer's partner is, but it is rumoured to be WestpacTrust. He has previously said the institution is a New Zealand-based bank. (A previously planned alliance with ANZ fell over).

Reaching agreement on the range and details of services to be offered is one thing. The actual launch isn't likely to be before the end of June at the earliest, he says.

Muir has previously said The Warehouse won't be competing head-to-head with Deputy Prime Minister Jim Anderton's plans to set up a "People's Bank" through New Zealand Post.

Instead, it will be an extension of the services The Warehouse already offers, including those provided to its 200,000 Warehouse cardholders.
