Mozo snapshot

Ready to lock in your rate? With fixed rates starting from 2.44% (2.60% comparison rate*) for three years, the Switch and Save Special - Fixed Home Loan from Mortgage House could be a competitive option for owner occupiers, especially given the handy extras like free extra repayments, redraws and an optional offset account.

Key features

The Mortgage House Switch and Save Special - Fixed Home Loan has two fixed terms available for owner occupiers willing to make principal and interest repayments towards their loan: 

  • 3-year fixed rate: 2.44% (2.60% comparison rate*)
  • 5-year fixed rate: 2.74% (2.84% comparison rate*)

Just bear in mind that those rates are for loans between $150,000 and $5,000,000 with a maximum LVR of 80%, and once the fixed rate period is over a revert rate of 2.74% will apply. 

Aside from the interest rate, you’ll also want to know about some of the handy features attached to the Mortgage House loan. These include the ability to make extra repayments for free and to redraw them later down the line (minimum $20 redraw amount applies). Speaking of repayments, borrowers will be able to make them on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. 

Mortgage House also gives its Switch and Save Special customers the ability to open an optional offset account which they can use to stash their savings and lower their repayments. However, it does come at a cost of $10/month. 

While the loan doesn’t come with any ongoing costs (unless you opt for an offset account), there are a number of hefty fees you’ll want to consider. These include a $600 application fee, $395 legal fee and $445 settlement fee which all need to be paid upfront, as well as a $500 fee when the loan is discharged.

Who is it good for

With relatively competitively fixed rates for 3 and 5-year terms and some handy extras features that you don't always see with fixed rate home loan offers, the Mortgage House Switch and Save Special - Fixed Home Loan could be a choice worth considering for borrowers looking to fix their rate. However, it’s certainly worth weighing up these benefits against some of the significant upfront fees attached to the loan.

Any catches

Just bear in mind that the $600 application fee also applies to refinancers, though Mortgage House describes this as a ‘refundable’ fee.
