7.3 / 10

based on 1645 reviews

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.

Used to have competitive rates, but not anymore

You can only take minimum $500 lots out of your offset account at one time. It cannot be used as an everyday offset account as we were led to believe.

Good service but at an extremely high price

Banks should pass on full interest rate cuts. With the billions of dollars in profits, their shareholders are doing quite well and they should support the hands that feed them.

The comparison rate displayed is for a secured loan with monthly principal and interest repayments for $150,000 over 25 years, and applies only to this example. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Full comparison rate schedules are available from lenders. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
