Commbank home loan rates
As one of Australia’s largest banks and one of the biggest of the “Big 4”, Commonwealth Bank (CBA) doesn't always offer the lowest rates on the market, but is able to offer competitive home loan offers, including package deals with other financial products.
CBA has a variety of home loans available at a range of different interest rates. As a general rule, owner-occupiers get lower interest rates than investors; principal-and-interest borrowers get lower interest rates than interest-only borrowers; and borrowers with lower LVRs get lower interest rates than borrowers with higher LVRs.
Commonwealth Bank also puts different prices on its variable interest rates and its fixed interest rates. CBA’s fixed rate mortgages are available for either one, two, three, four, five or seven year terms. As a general rule, the longer you want to fix, the higher the interest rate.
The fastest way to find out what the lowest interest rates on the market are is to use a comparison website.
While a low interest rate is highly preferable, it is not the only factor that will determine whether a particular loan is right for you.
Loans with low interest rates can often include hidden catches, such as high fees or a period of low rates which jumps up after the introductory period has ended.
To work out the best value for money, have a look at a loan’s comparison rate and read the fine print to get across all the fees and charges that you could be theoretically charged over the life of the loan.
The comparison rate is a more inclusive way of comparing home loans that factors in not only on the interest rate but also the majority of upfront and ongoing charges that add to the total cost of a home loan.
The rate is calculated using an industry-wide formula based on a $150,000 loan over a 25-year period and includes things like revert rates after an introductory or fixed rate period, application fees and monthly account keeping fees.
In Australia, all lenders are required by law to publish the comparison rate alongside their advertised rate so people can compare products easily.
