Bankwest Capped Rate Variable Home Loan

September 19, 2009

The Bankwest Capped Rate variable home loan was launched in the first week of September 2009 with an advertised variable interest rate of 5.4 percent p.a. Compared to most three-year fixed rates, the Bankwest Capped Rate variable home loan is good value because it will not go above 7.5 percent p.a. until November 12, 2012. As the Bankwest Capped Rate variable home loan interest rate can change just the same as a normal variable interest rate, it is likely to move in gradual steps. Australians can pay a slightly higher rate for the Bankwest Capped Rate variable home loan compared to a simple variable interest rate home loan, but the cost is for the surety that the interest rate will not rise higher than 7.50 percent during the capped period.
