Key features

The Illawarra Credit Union The Works Fixed Home Loan hits the ground running with competitive fixed interest rates for owner-occupiers on loan amounts of $150,000 and up, with a 95% maximum LVR. Just bear in mind that if you're borrowing with over 80% LVR, you will have to budget for Lenders Mortgage Insurance.

The interest rate you get will depend on which loan term you choose. Here are the interest rates on offer according to the different rate tiers:

• Fixed 1-year interest rate: 2.34% p.a. (3.00% p.a. comparison rate*)
• Fixed 2-year interest rate: 2.29% p.a. (2.98% p.a. comparison rate*)
• Fixed 3-year interest rate: 2.35% p.a. (2.98% p.a. comparison rate*)

In addition to hot rates, the Works Fixed Home Loan offers weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayment options, so you’ll be able to tailor your regular loan repayments around your budget and lifestyle.

On top of all this, the loan comes with tonnes of flexible features, like extra loan repayments and a fee-free redraw facility, which could be super useful should you need access to some extra funds. Just keep in mind that it’s a minimum $500 redraw.

Another fab feature that comes with the Illawarra Credit Union The Works Fixed Home Loan is the optional split account which lets you split between variable and fixed rates. Talk about flexibility!
