Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan

Features

The Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan provides customers with a line of credit on the equity in their home. This line of credit will give borrowers access to an amount of credit that has been agreed on with Auswide Bank. This credit can be used for any purpose, much like the credit on a credit card, but because of the extra security provided by the borrower’s property, the interest rate is lower than that of average credit cards.

In order to give borrowers more control over how they manage their credit account, the Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan provides the option for customers to split their line of credit between several accounts in order to use those accounts for different purposes. How the maximum credit amount is divided between these accounts can be decided by the customer. This feature may be useful for borrowers who need separate lines of credit for different purposes that they want to keep separate, such as household spending and investment.

To add to the convenience of a line of credit that can be split, borrowers will also have access to a debit card that will give them easy access to these funds at any time. The Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan will also allow customers to make additional repayments at any time, so that they can pay off their loan at any speed they like.

Who is the Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan good for?

The Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan will suit any borrowers looking to use a line of credit for multiple purposes that they would prefer to keep track of separately. It will provide them with the flexible management that comes with multiple credit accounts without sacrificing the security of an equity based line of credit.

Review - What RateCity says

The Line of Credit Loan from Auswide Bank provides a line of credit with notable flexibility. The option of dividing the loan’s credit maximum between multiple accounts gives borrowers a good deal of control over how they use the credit in the course of their financial activities. This flexibility is combined with the convenience of a debit card for accessing the funds, the lower interest rates of equity based lines of credit, and the ability to make additional repayments on the loan. The Auswide Bank Line of Credit Loan will be useful to borrowers who would like to be able to manage their use of home loan credit closely.
