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.
Repaying your home loan
You could reduce your home loan interest and pay off your loan faster with an offset account.
- 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.
* For the interest offset to apply there must be a minimum of $1,000 in the MISA.
