What other home buyers are asking about 
home loan repayments

There's no point re-inventing the wheel. Here's what other savvy home buyers are frequently asking us. If you're still stuck for help, then why not check out all of our home loan FAQs.

Before submitting your application to a lender, it could be a good idea to work out what your home loan repayments might be – the Home Loan Repayment Calculator helps you to:

  • Compare Principal & Interest repayments versus Interest Only repayments
  • Find out how Fixed or Variable interest rates could affect your loan repayments
  • Learn how weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments could affect your loan
  • See how making extra repayments may help you save interest in the long run. 

Give it a try.  Simply enter your chosen loan amount, loan term, interest rate and loan repayment type to understand what your mortgage repayments could look like based on the information you have provided.

When getting a home loan, there are generally two different repayment options: Principal and Interest, and Interest Only.  

Principal and Interest: With each repayment, a portion goes toward reducing the outstanding loan balance (principal) while the remainder covers the interest charges. Over time the outstanding loan balance decreases and the borrower gradually builds equity as the loan is paid off. 

Interest Only: Borrowers only pay the interest charges on the loan without reducing the outstanding loan balance (principal) which remains unchanged during the specified loan period, generally between 1 - 5 years' - very few lenders offer 10 years Interest Only especially for home loans.

Note: When the Interest Only repayment schedule ends, borrowers will need to make higher repayments to cover both principal and interest for the remainder of the loan term.. Note: When the Interest Only repayment schedule ends, borrowers will need to make higher repayments to cover both principal and interest for the remainder of the loan term.

By paying off your home loan faster, you could save yourself some interest. Here some ways how: 

Changing your repayments.

  • Additional repayments above and beyond the agreed amount with your lender could help you pay off your home loan faster.
  • Instead of making 12 monthly payments, consider switching to a bi-weekly payment schedule. This way you’ll make 26 half-payments over the year – that’s equivalent to 13 full payments. This could help you pay off your home loan sooner.

Consider making a lump sum payment towards your home loan.

  • If you receive any large sums of money – a bonus, a tax refund, or an inheritance for example – then consider using this to pay off your principal loan amount.

Note: Fees and charges apply if you pay out your loan. If you have a fixed interest rate home loan, there may be break fees that apply if you make additional repayments or payout your home loan during the fixed interest rate term. Find out what you need to know about home loan break fees.

Looking to reduce your monthly home loan repayments? Here are a few strategies to consider:

Extending your loan term: By stretching the loan term over a longer period (e.g. from 25 years to 30 years), you may lower your monthly repayments. While this could help to reduce your monthly outgoings, you’re likely to end up paying more in interest over the life of the loan.

Using an offset account: An offset account is linked to your mortgage. The funds held in this account are offset against your loan balance, which could decrease the amount of interest paid. The more money you maintain in your offset account, the less interest you could pay.  Note, fees may apply to offset accounts.

Refinancing your home loan: This could be an option to secure a lower interest rate which could result in reduced monthly repayments.

We want you to enjoy your home without worrying about your mortgage repayments. One way that could help is to ensure that your repayments don’t take up too much of a chunk out of your income. According to Forbes, if you’re spending 30% or more of your income on mortgage repayments, then you are already in mortgage stress. Ideally, you’ll have enough remaining from your take-home pay to ensure that you have funds left for other important things like food, utility bills and your health.  Of course, everyone’s situation is different, and these numbers are just a guide.  If you need advice on managing your home loan, it might be a good idea to consult a licensed financial or tax advisor.
