Repaying your home loan

With some budget planning, repaying your home loan could be more achievable than you think. But we understand that you might want to make some changes to your loan over its lifetime, or even pay it off early. Here you’ll find some useful tips on repaying your loan and information on how you could pay it off earlier than anticipated.

If you’re looking at the easiest way to repay your mortgage within the agreed term or sooner, here are some things worth considering.

By managing your mortgage loan in NetBank you can review transactions from as far back as two years ago, view loan statements as far back as seven years ago, change your repayment amounts or schedule additional repayments.

You could reduce your home loan interest and pay off your loan faster with an offset account.

Everyday Offset

  • Everyday Offset is an add-on feature to the Complete Access account, linking it to your Standard Variable Rate Home/Investment Home Loans
  • 100% offset. Every cent in your Everyday Offset reduces the interest you pay on your home loan, every single day
  • Ability to link your home loan to multiple individual and joint accounts with Everyday Offset in the same name(s) or combination of names as your linked home loan for one monthly fee ($10)
  • There is no minimum holding balance required; every cent in your linked accounts with Everyday Offset will offset the balance of your home loan
  • Accounts with Everyday Offset, provide full transactional capability and real time banking with NetBank and the CommBank app.

It’s a special savings account linked to your loan where any savings held are offset against the balance of your loan daily. That means every cent you have in your Mortgage Interest Saver Account can help you repay your loan sooner.*
