Do I have a good interest rate?

The best way to ensure that you’re getting a competitive interest rate is compare your rate to the rest of the market.

  • Margaret

    How are the flexible fixed rates different from the fixed rates?

  • Hi Margaret,

    Generally they mean the same, however different lenders have different products, so it may vary with the lenders. So, please can you provide us the name of a specific bank, so we could answer your question accurately.

  • Dexter

    What is a rate tracker home loan and how does it work?

  • A rate tracker home loan is where the interest rate offered is the RBA rate plus a margin that covers the bank’s cost of funds. Once the loan is set up, your mortgage will move by the same percentage as any change made to the official cash rate. So the variable rate itself doesn’t match the RBA but instead tracks the percentage change. Depending on your lender, your interest rate will change within two working of an RBA announcement.

    Please check out the rate tracker home loan page for more info:

  • Charles

    What is the lowest rate that I can get for a loan amount of $735,000 over 30 years?

  • According to the interest rate calculator on our website, if you’re going for a variable rate and paying P&I then the lowest rate available for your home loan is 3.69% with a 3.85% comparison rate, and your monthly repayment would be $3,379. You can test out different loan amounts and change other values yourself so here’s the link to the calculator:

  • Conter

    Are the rates only a crucial factor while deciding about the mortgage? How could you know about the costs, which are usually not published?

  • Good question Conter. Although home loan interest rates are important, you also need to consider the cost of the mortgage. Most people emphasise only the rates because they don’t know what else to focus on. However, there’s more to it than that, like Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI), which varies with the lenders.
    By choosing the right lender and considering LMI as well as the comparison rate, you can save thousands of dollars over the period of your home loan. Call us on 1300 889 743 or complete our free online assessment form to learn how we can help you with your home loan.

  • Monica

    Hi There
    My daughter is a first home buyer, but has found a good investment home to buy. If she doesn’t claim the first home owners grant this time, can she claim it for another home she will live in or build?
    We can go guarantor for her so she can borrow 100% correct?

  • Hi Monica,
    That would depend entirely on the state. For instance, in New South Wales and Victoria, you can be eligible for first home owners grant (FHOG) even if you purchased your investment property earlier and you didn’t live in it for a period of six consecutive months. However, the Queensland state government will not provide FHOG even if you have bought an investment property.
    Regarding going guarantor for her purchase, some banks allow guarantor home loans even for investment purchase.
