Interested in interest rates?
Fixed – Your interest rate won’t change or be affected by the market
With a fixed rate your interest is decided from the start, and stays the same for the time you choose – from 6 months to 5 years. If you’re looking for a way to budget this is a great option, your repayments will stay the same over the time you’ve chosen. Plus you’ll be able to make extra payments up to $10,000 per calendar year without penalty. If you’re looking to take out new lending with us, we can hold a fixed rate for you for up to 60 days once your loan is contracted. If your rate is up for renewal, you can easily re-fix with our Online Banking*.
Floating/Variable – Your interest rate will move with the market
A floating or variable interest rate moves with the market, decreasing your repayments when interest rates are low, and increasing them when the market rates are higher. If you’re looking to pay off your home loan faster, a floating/variable rate allows you the flexibility to increase your repayments, or make extra payments without any penalties.
Combine Fixed and Floating/Variable for the best of both worlds
