As things in your life change, you can adjust your home loan and your repayments to fit your changing needs. If you think it’s time to take another look at how your loan is set up, or want some guidance reviewing your home loan, you can talk to us or take advantage of the changes you can make 24/7 in NetBank.
Changing your repayment or loan type
If you’d like to change your repayment type between principal and interest, or interest only, you can do this anytime in NetBank.
The benefit of a principal and interest home loan is that you could save money by reducing the amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan.See which repayment types you can switch to and from
Switching your home loan to another option – from a variable rate home loan to a fixed rate home loan, for example – is easy. Best of all, your loan number will usually stay the same, so you don’t have to worry about changing any direct debit or salary credit arrangements you've set up with your loan.See which loan types you can switch to and from
Your reason for considering a change to your home loan is unique to you. Our experience shows us that people are most likely to consider changing when they:
- Are thinking about renovating.
- Are coming to the end of a fixed-rate term and want to review their options.
- Need increased flexibility, such as the ability to make unlimited extra repayments or redraw extra repayments.
- Want the certainty of fixed repayments that won’t change for a set period.
- Want to start repaying the principal to build equity (if they’re currently paying interest only).
If any of these reasons sound similar to yours, you can compare all of our home loan options any time.
