You've got questions
We've got answers.

If you are already a homeowner, you may have built up equity in your home over time that you could use to fund part or all of the deposit on an investment property.

Speak to your lender to find out how much equity you have and whether you could put it towards the deposit on an investment property. 

  

Interest is calculated based on the unpaid daily balance of your loan. For example, if you had a loan balance of $150,000 and your interest rate was 6% p.a., your interest charge would be: $150,000 x 6% divided by 365 days = $24.66 for that day. For most ANZ Home Loans, interest is usually calculated daily and charged monthly. For details refer to the ANZ Consumer Lending Terms and Conditions (PDF 412kB) and your letter of offer.

  

A comparison rate is designed to help you work out the total cost of a home loan by building the known costs like up-front and ongoing fees into that rate. It doesn’t include things like government charges, redraw fees or fee waivers. 

You can use comparison rates to help you compare the cost of different home loans with similar features. When deciding which home loan is right for you, it’s important to think about what features each home loan offers, and how much these matter to you. Keep in mind that you may not necessarily pay the comparison rate that is advertised for your loan type.  This is because, for example, you may not pay all the fees and charges which the comparison rate includes.

  

If you choose interest only, the minimum payment amount on your loan will be lower during the interest only period because you are not required to repay any of the loan principal. You will have to repay the principal down the track and so you may end up paying more over the life of your loan. There may be additional restrictions on the amount you can borrow or loan type you can select if you choose to pay interest only.

Choosing to repay principal and interest means that, with each repayment, you're paying off interest charges as well as some of the loan principal.

Learn more about payment types.

  

LVR stands for 'Loan to Value Ratio' and it's the amount you’re looking to borrow, calculated as a percentage of the value of the property you want to buy (as assessed by ANZ). For instance if you’re borrowing $400,000 to buy a $500,000 property, your LVR would be 80% (because $400,000 is 80% of $500,000).

LVR is important because it may affect your borrowing power. Generally, the lower the LVR the better, as it carries less risk for the lender. If your LVR is above 80% (that is, you're looking to borrow more than 80% of the value of the property you want to buy), you may need to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI). This insurance protects the lender - ANZ, not you - if you default on your home loan and there’s a shortfall following the sale of the property. Generally speaking the higher your LVR, the more LMI will cost.

Learn more about ANZ LMI with our Key Fact Sheet (PDF 370kB) or read our article on Lenders Mortgage Insurance.

If a Variable Rate Loan is selected, the interest rate will be subject to change throughout the term of the Loan, which can impact on repayment amounts.

Results are based on approximate amortised scheduled repayments and do not take into account interest rate changes or other events that may change repayment amounts on a loan.

For fixed rate loans, once the fixed rate period expires, the loan reverts to a variable rate loan and repayment amounts will change.

For interest only loans, once the interest only period expires, the loan will revert to the applicable variable rate loan for the remainder of the loan term (unless another interest rate period is taken). At the end of the interest only period, minimum repayment amounts may increase to cover principal and interest. Interest only loans are not for everyone and you should consider if this is the right strategy for you.
