Thanks to some diligent saving and an unexpected small inheritance, professional couple Tanya and Matt found themselves with a deposit of almost $150,000 to go ‘shopping’ for their first home.
Plus, they had a baby coming, so it had to be a home that would meet their growing needs.
Financially, they’d operated separate bank accounts, but had a combined savings account for holidays.
After talking to their RAMS home loan specialist, Matt and Tanya decided the RAMS Full Feature home loan would be their best option, and they would deposit both their salaries into the linked offset account.
This would help to reduce the interest cost on their loan, as the money saved in the offset account will offset the balance of the loan. Because of this, they also decided to add their joint savings into their offset account, to reduce interest even more.
Tanya and Matt qualified for the Value Advantage Package, so they added that to their loan. It meant they would save on fees, and would get a discounted variable interest rate too, to lower their monthly repayments.
They decided that they would try to make additional repayments on their loan as often as possible once Matt got his pay-rise, and their loan type was great for that, because they could make as many additional repayments they liked, with no fees. And with the redraw facility of the loan, they had the flexibility to redraw any time they need to – like when they needed some money to get the baby’s nursery set up.
With the offset transaction account in mind, Matt and Tanya decided they no longer needed separate accounts. They could each have a debit card for their transaction account, for purchases or ATM withdrawals, and each have a login for myRAMS^ too – giving them both visibility over all their shared accounts.
