Comparing apples with apples

When you are researching your home loan or personal loan make sure you are comparing apples with apples. Look for the comparison rate information as this takes into the interest rate, account fees and charges into single rate to show you the true cost of a loan and help you pick the best one. Remember the lowest rate is not always the best interest rate - also important to think about features such as repayment options and any ongoing fee that will impact how much interest you pay.
