Types Of Loans

Types of Loans

 

Variable Loans

Variable loans offer extra repayments, redraws on extra funds paid and flexibility to make changes. Rates may fluctuate depending on the RBA rates and funding costs. Great when they go down. Not so great when they go up.

 

Fixed Loans

Rates are fixed and will not change regardless of outside influences for the length of the fixed period. These are normally between 1 and 5 years so it’s ideal for people who do not intend to make finance and property changes within the fixed period. Limited extra repayments allowed and no redraw allowed on these loans. Be aware that break costs may apply within the fixed period.

 

Split loans

Get the best of both worlds. Split your loan between fixed and variable. It’s a great way to mitigate fluctuations in the interest rate and still have a redraw with extra repayments. Ideal for people who do not intend to make finance and property changes within the fixed period. Be aware that break costs may apply within the fixed period.

 

Interest only and principle and interest Repayments

Interest only and principle and interest  repayment can be attached to your fixed or variable loan.

Interest only (I/O) pays only the interest on the loan and not the principle. In this form you will still owe the original loan amount after every repayment. This is normally used by investors.

Principle and Interest (P&I) is where you will pay the interest and a portion of the principle off every month and slowly pay down your loan. This is normally used to repay your owner occupied home.
