Variable Rate Home Loans Variable Rate Home Loans

Owner occupiers and investors are given the choice between a basic home loan starting from $150,000 and a standard variable rate which is available on loans starting from $10,000. It’s easy to pay back your home loan on your own terms with flexible features such as extra repayments, repayment holidays and the choice between a weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment cycle. While the basic home loan option doesn’t have an attached service fee but should you opt for the standard variable rate you’ll be charged a monthly fee. If this is the case, you can offset the cost of the fee by taking full advantage of the offset account feature to help you save on interest over the term of your 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.
