Chances are you already know the Commonwealth Bank - the yellow and gold bank with a CAN-do attitude. But did you know they have roots dating back in Australia to 1912 - yep CommBank is no spring chicken! Today it’s one of Australia’s big four banks, with over 1,100 branches and 4,300 ATMs all over the country. So if you want to take out a home loan with an established bank that’s certainly not going anywhere anytime soon - you may just have found your perfect match here.

What home loans do Commonwealth Bank offer?

Fixed Rate Home Loans Fixed Rate Home Loans

There are a couple of fixed rate home loan options on offer from the Commonwealth Bank, depending on whether you’re an owner occupier or an investor. Fixed rate loans are available for amounts beginning at $10,000 and LVRs up to 95%. You’ll pay both a monthly service fee and an upfront application fee, so make sure you balance that out by cashing in on the flexible features, like fee free extra repayments up to the value of $10,000 p.a. and the use of a partial offset account.

Variable Rate Home Loans Variable Rate Home Loans

CommBank offers a huge range of variable rate home loan options for homebuyers with an LVR of up to 95%, looking to borrow amounts starting at $10,000. Like the fixed rate alternative, you’ll pay both a monthly and upfront fee on a CommBank variable rate home loan - but in return, you can enjoy a host of flexible, money saving features. This includes unlimited fee free extra repayments, unlimited free redraws both online and over the counter and the full use of an offset account. Don’t like the look of those fees? There’s also a fee free option, although you won’t have the use of an offset account with this choice.

When it came time for us to shop around and switch across to ING, Commonwealth Bank made life difficult and did not place $6000 we had in one of our home loan accounts back into our access account, which they had indicated was possible. So whilst the amount was absorbed off the total of our home loan, and taken out of our pockets, with no choice, no discussion and no apologies!
