"Honeymoon" rates

A Honeymoon rate is an introductory rate on a home loan. Some Lenders will offer an introductory rate which is usually a very competitive low rate. These low rates are for a certain period of time, say 1-3 years, after this period the rates will revert to a higher interest rate.


These honeymoon periods are usually offered to attract borrowers and are often very low. The downside of these extremely low honeymoon rates is that they usually revert back to a much higher standard variable rate once the introductory period expires.


What to be mindful of


Although a low introductory rate might be a great feature, it could detract from the more important things such as the ongoing rate after the honeymoon period, loan fees and most importantly if that loan is right for your long term goals.
There are many short term incentives lenders offer such as cash back deals and bonus frequent flyer points. These incentives may be attractive, and if the home loan is right for you a fantastic bonus. But they should never be the only reason for choosing a home loan.
