Offset Account Home Loans

Posted in Home-loans-perth

An offset account home loan generally has a savings account in which the balance of the savings account directly offsets against the balance of the home loan. For example if you have a home loan of $100,000 and you have a balance of $10,000 in your savings/offset account, the interest charged on the home loan would be the balance of $90,000 ($100,000 Home loan minus $10,000 in the savings/offset account). If you had $40,000 in the offset account, you would be charged interest on $60,000. Interest on home loans is generally calculated daily, so the interest charged on the home loan is the home loan itself ($100,000 in our example) minus the average daily balance of the offset account. This is a great way to save interest, on your home loan, as an offset account is generally a savings account, and can be used as your day to day transaction account, with a debit card, bpay etc.

 Advantages

  • A great way to save money.
  • With most banks, an offset account home loan can be packaged under a banks professional package, saving on fees and offering a discount interest rate on your home loan.
