Fixed Rate Home Loans Fixed Rate Home Loans

If you’re after a no-frills home loan solution, check out the fixed rate home loan option on offer. You can borrow up to 95% of the property’s value, and choose to make your repayments monthly, fortnightly or weekly. You’ll also get the option to take a repayment holiday, and to split your loan between fixed and variable rates. Keep in mind there is a legal fee to pay upfront.

You’ll have a bunch of great features, including unlimited free extra repayments, the chance to take a repayment holiday, and the ability to redraw funds, although a minimum applies to this. If you choose the Mortgage Offset option, you'll also have the use of an offset account.

* The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a home loan. 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.

‡ Results from this calculation are estimates only as individual lenders apply different formulas. Actual repayments will depend on your individual circumstances and interest rate changes.
