Fixed interest rate home loan

With this loan you keep the same interest rate and make the same payments for a selected period of time. This may make it easier for you to manage your finances because you know that your payments won’t change.

Benefits at a glance

  • Fixed interest rate terms to suit you – from 6 months to 5 years.
  • Budget with certainty knowing your payments won’t change for your fixed interest rate term.
  • Interest only option available.
  • You can increase your regular payments by up to $500 per fortnight, or $1000 per month for the rest of your fixed interest rate term.

Is it right for me?

A fixed interest rate loan may suit you if you want to make regular loan payments and know exactly how much each payment will be. Budgeting may be easier knowing your interest rate and payment amounts won't change during the fixed interest rate period.

However you need to be mindful that a fixed interest rate means limited payment flexibility. If flexibility to make extra payments is important to you, you might like to consider a floating interest rate loan, or perhaps split your loan and have a combination of both fixed and floating. If you need to make one or more extra payments during the term of a fixed interest rate loan, you may incur an Early Repayment Adjustment fee. 

About this loan

Increasing your payments

You can increase your payments by up to $500 a fortnight or $1000 a month without any cost through ASB Home Central. If you do this, you’ll need to keep your payments at this new amount for the remainder of your fixed interest rate term.

Make an extra payment

It is possible to make an extra payment on a fixed interest rate loan however you need to be aware an early repayment adjustment (ERA) may apply.

Choose how you repay the interest and principal

There are different repayment options to choose from. This includes a table loan, a reducing loan or interest-only.

Re-fix an existing ASB home loan rate wherever you want.
