Offset accounts work as a transaction account linked to your Low Cost Home Loan. The money in that account ‘offsets’ daily against the balance of your loan. So, it reduces the interest you need to pay because interest is only charged on your net balance (i.e. your overall loan balance minus your offset account balance). In other words, the loan ‘thinks’ you've paid that money off your loan already, reducing the interest charged accordingly. Qudos Bank offers multiple offset accounts on a number of home loans, check with your lending specialist.
Some of the main benefits of the Low Cost Home Loan include:
The Low Cost Home Loan is a great option for borrowers who want a low variable interest rate and access to a range of home loan features that are usually included in package products (and would typically incur a package fee). It’s often particularly ideal for first-time home buyers, those who are refinancing their home, or those who want to keep their home loan costs low. However, it’s important to note that this loan may not be suitable for everyone, and there may be other loans available that better suit your needs.
At Qudos Bank, we offer a range of low rate home loan options, including variable rate loans, fixed rate loans, and package loans. We encourage you to compare all of our home loan options to determine which loan is right for you. It’s important to consider more than just which options have low home loan rates when deciding on the most suitable loan. You can compare home loan options on our website.
Repayment holidays, also known as payment holidays or loan deferment, are a feature of some low rate home loans that allow borrowers to temporarily stop making repayments on their loan. This is typically offered by lenders for home loans, personal loans, and other types of consumer loans.
During a repayment holiday, the borrower does not need to make any repayments on the loan for a set period of time. Depending on the lender and the type of loan, repayment holidays may be available for a period of several months or even up to a year.
By taking a repayment holiday, borrowers can free up some cash flow and use the money for other pressing needs. It’s important to note that repayment holidays are only available when your repayments are in advance, are not available on interest only loans, and applications are subject to the lender’s approval.
At Qudos Bank, we use a daily interest calculation method to determine the interest charges for your Low Cost Home Loan. This means that the interest on your loan is calculated on a daily basis, based on the outstanding balance of your loan.
Our loan interest calculation method allows for up to ten decimal places in rounding the daily interest rate. This level of precision ensures that interest is calculated as accurately as possible, and that you’re only charged the appropriate amount of interest on your loan.
It's important to note that the interest rate on your Low Cost Home Loan can vary over time, depending on market conditions and other factors. We encourage you to stay up-to-date on your interest rate and to speak with one of our lending specialists if you have any questions or concerns.
