How to choose and apply for a loan?

Almost all home loans work on a “principal plus interest” basis. That means, over the term of the loan, you repay the principal (the amount of money you borrow) as well as interest (the price you pay to borrow the money) charged on the outstanding balance. There are a number of different loan structures to choose from, which may feel a little overwhelming, however this is where we step in and guide you through the entire process.

Variable rate loans

Unlike a fixed rate loan, the interest rate on a variable loan will move up and down in line with market interest rates. As a result, your loan repayments can vary widely during the term of your loan, and it’s worth allowing for the possibility of future rate rises before committing to a variable rate loan.

Fixed rate loans

This loan locks you into a particular interest rate for a set period (e.g. 1-5 years). Your repayments will remain the same, irrespective of how market rates move during the fixed term, which can make it easier to budget for your loan repayments.

Split loans

A split loan divides your loan into fixed and variable rate portions. This gives you certainty of repayments on the fixed rate part of the loan while still being able to enjoy the savings of possible future rate falls on the variable part of your loan.
