The Reserve Bank publishes data on the weighted floating first mortgage new customer housing rate in the Retail interest rates on lending and deposits (B3).
Interest.co.nz publishes mortgage interest rates for a range of terms.

Any special rates or discounts offered to borrowers with conditions (e.g. 30 percent equity) are excluded from the results.
Please note that the same floating interest rate source is published as a weighted average advertised rate for standard first mortgage interest rate borrowers in the B3 web table compared to a simple average in B20 – so the two rates will not necessarily align.

Both tables now include fixed rates for 18 months.
Special (or ‘discounted’) interest rates are advertised first mortgage interest rates offered by banks to new borrowers for residential property. Special rates or discounts are offered to borrowers who meet specific lending criteria, terms or conditions (e.g. at least 30 percent equity).
Over the coming months, we plan to release further series from this survey, including interest rates for:
