Variable home loans are the standard loans that most people apply for. This is because banks only allow you to fix your home loan rate for a few years, after which the interest rate begins to move with market trends.

Potential home owners applying for a variable loan also have the option of splitting their loan, so that a part of it is calculated at the fixed rate. This way, if rates rise, at least you will still be paying a low rate on part of your home loan.

Variable home loans also provide a lot of flexibility, so you can choose to make additional repayments, and redraw these repayments at your convenience.

Compare and find the most suitable variable rate home loan for you.

The best loan, credit card, superannuation account or bank account for you might not be the best choice for someone else. Before selecting any financial product you should read the fine print carefully, including the product disclosure statement, fact sheet or terms and conditions document and obtain professional financial advice on whether a product is right for you and your finances.
