Frequently Asked Questions
Each lender determines their own interest rate, which is constantly changing. These rates are often aligned with the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). When calculating your loan repayments, our home loan repayment calculator is there to use as a guide - your actualy loan repayments might change based on which loan you secure. As such, we reccomend using a 3.80% interest rate as a starting point when doing your calculations. If you know you can service these repayments on this interest rate, you know you'll be able to service them for lesser interest rates too.
Depending on what type of loan you have, you may be eligible to make additional repayments to your loan. Variable home loans often give homeowners the opportunity to make extra loan repayments, as well as access to an offset account and redraw facility, which borrowers can access at a later stage. Variable home loans can give borrowers more flexibility around their home loans, but some of these features may be at an additional cost.
