Fixed Rate Home Loans

 

 

Fixed Rate Home Loans offers you the ability to manage you budget knowing that your home loan repayments are not going to change regardless of what happens to interest rates. This comfort exists for the full term of your fixed rate period.

At the end of the fixed period, you have the choice of switching to the standard variable rate home loan or another loan product.

Fixed interest rates are set by Lenders based on their forward view of the economic environment. They may be higher or lower than the current day variable rates.

Borrowers need to undertake their own research in regard to selecting a fixed rate and term. Mortgage Brokers are not permitted to provide advice on the direction of interest rates, however they can provide you with historical knowledge and experience to assist in your decision.
