Mozo snapshot

Westpac’s Fixed Options Home Loan could be a flexible fit for a variety of owner occupier borrowers - from existing owners with built up equity to first home buyers with lower deposits. The loan comes with competitive rates across a number of terms, as well as a few handy features, but borrowers will need to weigh those up against some costs.

Key features

Let’s start with the basics of the Fixed Options Home Loan. It’s open to owner occupiers looking to borrow at least $15,000, and there are both principal and interest as well as interest-only repayment options available. 

Buyers will be able to lock in a fixed rate for either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 years, but rates vary depending on several factors including the loan-to-value ratio (LVR). The lowest fixed rates currently on offer are for borrowers with LVR’s below 70% making principal and interest repayments.

There are different rates depending on the LVR tier you're on. The tiers are:

  • Up to 70% LVR
  • 70.01% - 80% LVR
  • More than 80.01% LVR

There are also higher rates available for buyers with greater LVRs/a lower deposit (all the way up to <95% LVR), as well as for anyone wanting to make interest-only payments. 

For a fixed rate home loan, the Fixed Options Home Loan actually has quite a few features available. Borrowers can pay off their loan balance faster by making up to $30,000 in extra repayments during the fixed loan period, and there’s also a redraw facility which can be used to tap into those additional repayments (if needs be). Westpac even allows repayment holidays! 

Now there are a few costs to consider. The first is the $8 monthly loan account fee (which may not sound huge, but could add up over time), plus there’s also one-off application ($600) and loan discharge ($350) fees.

Who is it good for

With relatively competitive rates and a generous amount of features, the Fixed Options Home Loan could be a choice worth considering for a range of owner occupier borrowers looking to lock in their rate for a few years. For investors, Westpac’s Fixed Rate Investment Loan will be better suited.

Any catches

Aside from weighing up the ongoing and one-off fees attached to the loan, borrowers should also watch out for the revert rate which is quite high. The revert rate kicks in once the fixed rate period is over, so once you’re getting towards the end of your fixed term, it’s always worth comparing other home loan options to make sure that you’ll still be getting a competitive rate.
