Understanding home loans Balmain & Annandale

Selecting a home loan is an essential step in buying property and it's critical that your loan fits your lifestyle, needs and budget. With a wealth of features and flexibility on offer, it can be hard knowing which loan is right for your circumstances, however, that's where we can help you! To help you narrow down the choice, we've outline the options below. 

Standard variable home loan

This is the most popular type of loan among Australian home buyers. The loan interest rate is variable, meaning it can rise and fall in line with market interest rates set by lenders. We've covered the pros and cons below to help you figure out if this is the right option for you.


  • If interest rates drop, your repayments will fall also
  • Extra repayments may allow your home to be paid off sooner


  • Repayments will rise if interest rates climb 
Basic variable home loan

Well known as the 'no frills' loan, basic home loans come with a lower rate than a standard variable loan, however, it also comes without all of the features. This type of loan is often a favourite among first home buyers. We've outlined the pros and cons below to help you figure out if this is the right option for you.


  • Generally, lower interest rates than the standard variable loans


  • Tend to be less flexible and have fewer features than standard variable home loans
Fixed rate home loan

A fixed loan lets you lock in your home loan interest rate for a set term, typically 1, 2 or 3 years. This means your repayments won't change regardless of how market rates move, which can make it easier to budget.


  • Protection against rate hikes for the fixed term
  • Allows for accurate budgeting


  • If interest rates fall, you could end up paying more than necessary on your home loan
  • Bailing out before the fixed term ends can often see you hit with hefty costs
  • Often have limited, if any, ability to make extra repayments
