Types of Home & Investment Loans
We offer a number of different types of home & investment loans designed to match your needs. The loan or combination of loans which best suit you will be based on your individual preferences and circumstances.
Variable rate home loans
Split home loans
Interest-only home loans
Fixed rate home loan
The main advantage of a fixed rate loan is that it gives you certainty of repayments over the fixed term. The interest rate is guaranteed not to go up (or down) over the fixed period, so you know exactly how much you will be repaying each month and can budget accordingly.
Fixed rate loans are however more inflexible than a variable rate loan. Generally, large additional payments cannot be made and you may face a break fee if you decide to refinance your loan or sell the property before the end of the fixed term. There is usually no offset account or redraw features with this type of loan. With that said, the fixed rates on home loans are historically low at present due to Australia’s record low official cash rate, making it a good time to look for a fixed rate home loan should this be your best option.
Variable rate home loan
The main advantage of a variable rate loan is flexibility. While you must meet your minimum monthly repayment, you can usually pay more if you want to. There is also no cost penalty if you decide to sell your property and move. An offset account is a great feature of this type of loan. The idea is to hold surplus funds in this account to minimise the interest you pay on your home loan. This in turn helps to reduce the time it takes to repay your loan and allows you to own your home sooner.
The difference with a variable rate loan is that your minimum repayment amount may rise or fall at any time. This makes it harder to plan and predict your repayments, which can be worrying if your budget is tight or you have a temporary reduction in income eg taking parental leave after the birth of a child.
Split home loan
Interest-only home loan
A bridging loan allows you to secure the purchase of your new home prior to having sold your existing one. It is a short-term facility, usually 6 months and is a slightly more expensive path to take. However, it can provide peace of mind by not having to rush and sell and eliminates the stress of co-ordinating a simultaneous settlement.
