Here’s an example of why it may pay to find a lower interest rate on your home loan.

For the sake of this example, let’s assume that the rate offered by your lender is 4.73% p.a. for their basic variable home loan, compared to a rate of 4.05% through Australian Unity.

It’s a difference of just 0.68% which doesn’t seem like much, but as you will see below, those savings add up over time. Some interest rates can be a lot more than 0.68% higher than loans we could find for you.

Assuming that rates remain unchanged, with your lender, the standard monthly repayment on a $350,000 loan would be $1,822, and your interest bill over the 30 year loan would be $305,758.

However, if you switched to the loan we arranged for you, your monthly repayment obligation may reduce to $1,682.

If you were to make repayments of the original amount of $1,822 per month, your interest bill over the term of the loan arranged through Australian Unity may be just $215,124 – a saving of $90,634 and you would repay your loan 4.08 years sooner.

That’s not a bad return for just switching your home loan with the help of Australian Unity. Call or email your financial adviser today to help you make the switch and save.
