Key features

The Macquarie Basic Home Loan (Fixed) offers competitive rates for both owner occupiers and investors on a range of different fixed terms. For owner occupiers borrowing up to 70% of the property value, and making both principal and interest repayments, they could benefit from a 2.09% 3 year fixed rate (2.43% comparison rate*), while investors receive a 2.59% 3 year fixed rate (2.83% comparison rate*). 

Not only can you lock in a solid rate at the start of your loan, throughout the life of your mortgage Macquarie offers features like repayment holidays and complimentary extra repayments, as long as you’ve made your minimum repayments. And if you need to access those extra repayments down the track, the Macquarie Basic Home Loan (Fixed) also has a free redraw facility without a minimum redraw amount, giving you the freedom to take back the exact amount you need. 

Looking for a little more? If you’re a Qantas Frequent Flyer member, or want to be one, you can earn Qantas points with the Macquarie Basic Home Loan (Fixed). But before you go and book your next flight, there are a few conditions. To be eligible, borrowers must add 0.05% to their fixed and variable rates on their home loan. They can then earn 10k points per $100k borrowed, 1,000 points every month for balances over $150k and 25k on the 3rd and 5th anniversaries of their home loan. While the points might sound like a small pot of gold when you first take out your loan, keep in mind this will increase your rate by 0.05%, so crunch some numbers and weigh up whether a 0.05% interest rate increase is worth it. 

If you want to avoid paying extra fees, you’ll be happy to know there are no upfront or ongoing fees on the Macquarie Basic Home Loan (Fixed). Keep in mind though, you will be slapped with a $400 discharge fee at the end of your loan.

Who is it good for

Any catches

While there are no application or ongoing fees throughout the life of this loan, don’t forget that you will be charged a $400 discharge fee once you have paid out your loan.
