A revolving credit home loan may suit you if you want a flexible loan that allows you to repay and redraw up to your credit limit at any time. Your available funds are always on call, so you don’t have to reapply unless you need to exceed this limit. If you aren’t confident in budgeting or actively managing your finances, this loan is not suitable for you. If you’re looking for payment certainty, you might like to consider either a fixed interest rate home loan or have a combination of fixed and floating.
It may be suitable if you have a fluctuating income. If you direct your income into your revolving credit home loan, you’ll lower your account balance and reduce your interest cost as a result. This is because you are only charged interest on the outstanding balance of your home loan.
Revolving credit home loans are on a floating interest rate, so you should keep in mind your interest rate and payments may go up or down in line with market conditions.
Since your home loan and transactional account are combined, you can access funds up to your credit limit at any time. Directing your income into this account will help lower your loan balance and also help you reduce interest costs. We charge a monthly fee for this account. If you aren’t confident in budgeting or actively managing your finances this loan is not suitable for you.
This loan has a variable interest rate so it may increase or decrease in line with market conditions.
Choose a payment option that suits you. With revolving credit you have the option of an Orbit Home Loan; where your credit limit stays the same over the life of the loan, or an Orbit FastTrack Home Loan; where the credit limit reduces regularly. A reducing limit can help you with repaying the principal on your loan.
