What home loans do Macquarie offer?

Fixed Rate Home Loans Fixed Rate Home Loans

The fixed rate Basic Home Loan from Macquarie is a fee free option - no service or application fees in sight. Don’t let the name fool you though, the Basic Home Loan is packed with handy features to help you save money on your mortgage like free extra repayments and the ability to make redraws. Just keep in mind that these features do come with conditions - your extra repayments are capped at 5% p.a. and redraws will attract a fee if you do it over the counter. You can also bundle your Basic Home Loan - or any Macquarie home loan for that matter - with a Macquarie Credit Card, and skip paying the annual credit card fee for the life of your loan. This loan is only available for amounts between $150,000 and $750,000, for borrowers with an LVR of less than 80%.

If you opt for the variable rate Basic Home Loan, you’ll get all the great features packed into the fixed rate alternative, but with added flexibility. You won’t pay upfront or service fees on this loan, and borrowers can get their hands on amounts up to $5,000,000 and in some circumstances, with an LVR up to 95%. Flexible features include unlimited fee free extra repayments, unlimited free redraws and the opportunity to take repayment holidays. You can also choose how you repay your loan by opting for fortnightly or monthly repayments, and either a principal and interest or interest only loan.

Fixed Package Home Loan Fixed Package Home Loan

The fixed rate Offset Home Loan Package from Macquarie is similar to the fixed rate Basic Home Loan, in that it’s available for amounts up to $750,000, for borrowers with an LVR lower than 80%. It differs in that you will pay a half-yearly service fee. The tradeoff for this fee is the use of a 100% offset account to keep your home loan costs low. Other money saving features include the ability to make extra repayments up to 5% each year, choose between an interest only or principal and interest loan and make your repayments either fortnightly or monthly to suit your schedule.

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.
