The Mac Fixed Rate Loan

Features

The Mac Fixed Rate Loan may suit borrowers who prefer the certainty of knowing exactly what their home loan repayments will be over a period of time.

A fixed rate may help first home buyers plan their finances, and have more control over their budget without worrying about rate fluctuations. The Mac Fixed Rate Loan allows customers to have flexibility through a split loan option.

Borrowers can nominate an amount that will be at the fixed rate and the remaining amount will be at the variable interest rate, so as to get the best of both options.

The Mac Fixed Rate Loan offers fixed terms of one, two and three years with the flexibility of repaying weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on what suits your income.

The provision of a redraw facility on this loan for those who have chosen to pay more into it, adds confidence for customers that funds will be available if ever needed. The additional bonus of being able to pay those extra funds may compensate for the fact that The Mac Fixed Rate Loan does not offer a 100 per cent offset account.

Who is the The Mac Fixed Rate Loan good for?

If you are an investor, refinancer or a first home buyer, the Mac Fixed Rate Loan can offer a competitive rate home loan with added benefits. The loan is available to members of The Mac only.

Review - What RateCity says

The Mac Fixed Rate Loan offers competitive interest rates on one, two and three year fixed rate terms. A split loan option is also available, giving borrowers the choice of combing a portion of their loan with a fixed rate and a portion on the variable rate. The loan has no ongoing fees and minimum setup costs, making this an attractive mortgage option for the right borrower.

The Mac Fixed Rate Loan offers some basic features, including the ability to make additional repayments without penalty, and a redraw facility to access those additional funds should the need arise.

On the downside, the loan does not have a mortgage offset account, which can be a popular feature. Also, with branches access limited to a small region of NSW, this loan may not be suited to all borrowers.
