Basic Variable Rate Home Loan
The best place to start your home loan search
What is a Variable Rate Home Loan?With variable rate home loans the interest rate varies according to market forces but is normally several percentage points higher than the current Reserve Bank interest rate. When the Reserve Bank changes official rates then variable rates from bank and non-bank lenders follow suit. Interest Rates can move up or down.
The Variable rate home loan is still the most common form of loan in Australia and is normally a principal and interest type loan, but can be interest only. Equity, Renovation, Low Doc, No Deposit, Debt Consolidation, Investment and First Home Loans are just other names for Variable Rate Loans. However as many of the loan titles suggest, the eligibility criteria is different for each.
Standard Variable loans include features that give the borrower maximum flexibility in management and repayments.
Basic variable loans are usually the cheapest loan on the market in terms of interest rates. However this doesn't always mean they are the cheapest loan as there may be extra charges like monthly account fees, and they often don't have many of the useful features of the standard loan (see below).
Variable Rate Loans are still the largest part of the mortgage market as they have been for many years because they are flexible and feature rich.

Features of Basic Variable Rate LoansStandard Variable rate loans offer flexibility, low fees and moderate interest rates. With a Basic Variable Rate Loan you generally trade flexibility and low fees for a slightly lower interest rate.
If there is a reduction in official interest rates, your repayments also reduce.
Other useful features can include a redraw facility, direct salary crediting, portability and repayment options. Most Basic Variable Loans do not include offset accounts or a split loan facility. Account keeping fees are usually higher than Standard Variable Loans and so are Redraw fees.
