How much difference does 0.5% make on a home loan?

It makes a big difference to your interest payments. As an example, if you had a $600,000 home loan with a loan term of 30 years, the difference between an interest rate of 6% and 6.5% is: $195 in monthly repayment savings and $70,238 in interest saved over the life of your loan.
Note: These figures are estimates only and assumes all fees and other charges are equal.

You can estimate your monthly repayments on a Tiimely Own home loan, including the total interest charged with our repayments calculator.

Legal information about our rates
Our home loans are subject to credit criteria and eligibility requirements. Home loan interest rates are for new customers only and can change. Our comparison rates are based on a $150,000 loan amount over a 25 year term. They factor in fees associated with applying for the loan; ongoing fees and fees associated with leaving the loan. Our fixed loans roll to a variable principal and interest rate at the end of the fixed term. If the interest only period is not specified, the comparison rate is calculated on a one year period.

WARNING: The comparison rates are 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.
