Chris wants to join the first home buyers’ club by buying his first property in Australia. He’s found the perfect inner-city apartment in Melbourne for around $500,000.
Through careful money management, he’s managed to save a 20% deposit. At this point, he likes the idea his repayments are the same each month, that way if interest rates rise, his loan repayments won’t change during the period he’s fixed his home loan. So a fixed term home loan is what he’s thinking at the moment. Chris also wants some flexibility to make an extra repayment on his home loan if circumstances allow.
A RAMS Fixed Rate Classic Home Loan has all the features Chris is looking for in a home loan, including a fixed interest rate (so he’ll know exactly what his monthly repayments will be) and a broad range of fixed term periods to choose from.
With the Fixed Rate Classic Home Loan, Chris can deposit up to $30,000 extra during the fixed rate period, with no break costs, but also have the ability to redraw this money if he needs to (minimum redraw amount of $1,000).
Other loan features, like direct salary credit and repayments via BPAY® will make managing the loan straightforward.
After having a chat with his local RAMS home loan specialist, Chris chooses a split loan option. His loan will be split between a home loan with a 2 year fixed rate period combined with a variable interest rate as part of his overall loan.
It’s a ‘best of both worlds’ scenario, as Chris now has security only in relation to the amount he has fixed and only for the fixed rate period. He has the added ability to make additional repayments if he has a windfall.
Whether buying a new home, refinancing an existing home loan or investing in property, RAMS mortgage calculators can give you an estimate of what your repayments could be, based on your home loan amount, your loan type and the interest rate you think you'll be paying. Once you get an idea of your mortgage repayments from the calculator, together with the rest of your budget, you'll start to see whether you can realistically afford the home you want to buy. Your local RAMS franchisee can also help guide you through this process. View all of our calculators.
