^ Comparison rate accurate for $150,000 secured loan over 25 years. WARNING: This comparison rate is true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
* Repayment is indicative only based on the stated information. Changes in interest rates, repayment frequency and loan term will affect the repayment amount. The calculations do not take into account fees, charges or other amounts that may be charged to the loan (such as establishment fees and security administration fees). If you are borrowing more than 80% of the value of the property, Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance may apply. Any of these additional amounts will increase the repayments under the loan. Calculations are not a loan approval. Applications are subject to credit approval, satisfactory security, and minimum deposit requirements. Conditions apply to all loan options.
1 Discounts off the Basic Variable and Offset Variable Reference Rate are available to (a) new home loans with a minimum application amount of $100,000; or (b) switching or restructuring of the home loan you already have with us when it includes new borrowing of at least $10,000; for new home loan applications unconditionally approved on or after 22 June 2022. Published interest rates are inclusive of any discounts off the respective Reference Rates. Interest rates and discounts vary based on the loan purpose (owner occupier and investor), repayment type (principal and interest, interest only, construction) and Loan to Value Ratio (LVR). Maximum LVR applies and includes Lenders Mortgage Insurance and Great Southern Bank loan setup fees where applicable.
2 Great Southern Bank may withdraw or amend this offer at any time without notice. A change in your loan purpose, your repayment type or your loan product will permanently end your entitlement to the discount.
3 LVR means ‘Loan to Value Ratio’. It is the amount of your loan divided by the valuation of your property, calculated as a percentage. For example, if you apply for a loan of $400,000, which will be secured by a property valued at $500,000, your LVR is 80%. We calculate your LVR at the time we approve your loan and your discount won’t change because of changes to the LVR during the life of your loan.
4 For Interest Only loans, a maximum interest only period of 36 months applies for owner occupier loans and 60 months for investment loans. For Fixed Rate loans, the interest only period must align with the fixed rate period. On expiry of the Fixed Rate interest only period, loans will revert to the Basic Variable Principal and Interest Owner Occupier or Investor Reference Rate (as applicable) which applies at the time of expiry. On expiry of the Basic Variable interest only period, loans will revert to the Basic Variable Principal and Interest Owner Occupier or Investor Reference Rate (as applicable) which applies at the time of expiry, less any discount set out in the loan contract. On expiry of the Offset Variable interest only period, loans will revert to the Offset Variable Principal and Interest Owner Occupier or Investor Reference Rate (as applicable) which applies at the time of expiry, less any discount set out in the loan contract. Comparison rate for Interest Only loan is based on interest only payments for the fixed term and principal & interest payments for the balance of the term.
5 A $200 minimum withdrawal amount applies for redraws conducted in-branch.
6 You must maintain a minimum balance of $500 in each offset account to obtain an offset benefit. You will also not receive any interest on the funds in your offset accounts.
7 A daily transfer will refund any amounts paid in advance in excess of the total advance repayments allowed during the fixed rate period ($30,000) unless sufficient to pay out the loan in full (in which case an Early Payout Cost may apply). Excess funds will be transferred to the nominated deposit account, which must remain open for the fixed rate period.
8 An Early Payout Cost may apply if the loan is terminated during the fixed rate period. A partial Early Payout Cost may apply if a reduction to the principal is requested during the fixed rate period. Click here to view the Early Payout Cost Factsheet.
