All of the home loans have very competitive interest rates:
- Variable Interest Rates - This rate is a benchmark used by all home loan lenders and varies in line with the movements in financial markets. Your repayments could go up or down with the Reserve Bank's rates or as the market changes.
- Fixed Interest Rates - The interest rate is locked in for one to five years, depending on the product. This means that you know exactly what your repayments are. If you fix the entire loan, you may have to sacrifice flexible features like the free offset, extra repayments and redraw.
This shows you the real
rate you pay, once the fees and other loan costs are taken into
account. This figure allows you to compare home loans offered by all
banks, non-bank lenders and credit unions. It factors in such things as
honeymoon rates and fees and is a regulatory requirement. It is
calculated based on a $150,000 loan over a 25 year period. For a more
accurate comparison rate please refer to our Comparison Rate Schedule
and select the product, term and loan amount that most closely
corresponds with your loan.

You can split your home
loan into as many as four sub-accounts after the settlement date. This
means you can split your loan between fixed and variable rates, as well
as Principal & Interest and Interest Only repayments. With the
variable rate you've also got the bonus of a free offset redraw
facility, so that every dollar you keep as redraw reduces the daily
interest accrued on that part of your home loan.
