Handy tips to help pay off your home sooner

Make extra payments

If you're not in a fixed rate term, you could add extra to each loan payment, or deposit large amounts (such as tax returns, dividends or bonuses). By doing so, you could save on interest and pay off your loan sooner.disclaimer

Consider setting up more frequent repayments

You may like to think about changing the frequency of your repayments. For example, if you make fortnightly repayments instead of monthly repayments, you'll be reducing your total interest charges.

Save on interest payable with an offset account

If you have an eligible loan (such as an ANZ Standard Variable loan or a one-year ANZ Fixed loan), you can link an ANZ One offset accountdisclaimer to it. The more money you have in your linked offset account, the less interest you'll need to pay on your home loan.

Repay principal and interest

If you're looking to pay off the total amount of your home loan rather than just the interest, then switching from interest-only to principal and interest is something you could consider.

Get access to your money

Redraw your extra repayments if you need to 

ANZ Redraw could let you access extra payments you've made to an eligible loan account when you need to.4 You can easily access your redraw funds via ANZ Internet Banking and other convenient ways.

Using equity to build wealth through property investment

Unlocking the equity in your home could be an option if you were thinking about purchasing an investment property, as it could help with a deposit for that purchase. Investors may be able to negatively gear their property investments depending on their personal circumstances.5

Increase your home loan

If you find that your financial circumstances have changed and you need additional funds, you could have options such as applying for a top-up or supplementary loan. Just contact one of our home loan specialists to discuss your options.

For ANZ Fixed Rate loans, you can make early or additional repayments up to a set available tolerance amount (the lesser of 5% of the loan amount at the start of the current fixed rate period or $5,000) each year of the fixed rate period, without triggering an Early Repayment Cost.  An Early Repayment Cost may be incurred if, during the fixed rate period, the available tolerance amount is exceeded, the loan is fully repaid or refinanced, or ANZ agrees to change the interest rate at your request. Please be aware that Early Repayment Costs can be very large. Terms and Conditions apply please refer to the ANZ Consumer Lending Terms and Conditions (PDF 296kB) and ANZ Fixed Rate Loans - What happens if you repay some or all of it early?
