Variable annual interest rate and comparison rate 1,2
Sometimes, Simple is best
At some (life) stage you will probably want a home loan with offset attached. But if you don’t need it now, why pay for it?
With a Simple home loan you get brilliant benefits including free redraw, extra repayments and a suite of personal banking tools like linked accounts, online/mobile banking, electronic payments (ApplePay/GooglePay) and Visa debit cards.
Without an offset account or a fee-free Visa credit card, you'll get a cheaper interest rate with a Simple home loan
Simple loans are also available for investment properties for a small interest rate surcharge of 0.25% and interest-only repayment terms are possible (again, for a small rate surcharge of 0.20%).
You can now lock-in your home loan rate for up to three years from 6.24% p.a. (interest and comparison rate). This works for Simple Loans (without offset) and our Complete Package which includes offset account and low-rate Visa credit card. Also available for interest-only and also investment property loans.
