Things to consider about the Bankwest Complete Home Loan Package - Fixed Rate
You can apply for this home loan package if you wish to buy a new home, either to live in or for investment purposes, although note that different rates apply to investment purchases. You can choose a fixed term of between one and five years, after which you can fix for another term or let the rate revert to a discounted variable rate.
As mentioned, this loan is a package loan, meaning that while you get a competitive interest rate and discounted fees, you will pay an annual package fee. The package, however, offers you access to other Bankwest products with certain fees waived also.
Features of the Bankwest Complete Home Loan Package - Fixed Rate
- Loan amount, term, and LVR This fixed rate home loan package comes with a minimum borrowing limit of $200,000, and the maximum amount depends on factors like your financial standing, the valuation of any given home, and your ability to make repayments. The maximum loan to value ratio (LVR) stands at 90% and the loan term can go up to 30 years.
- Offset account. Not many fixed rate home loans come with offset accounts, but this one does. The Bankwest Complete Home Loan Package - Fixed Rate offers a 40% offset transaction account, where the calculation of interest on your home loan takes into account 40% of the balance in your offset account. This offset account doesn’t attract a monthly offset fee under the package.
- Flexible repayments. You can make weekly, fortnightly, or monthly repayments with this loan. You have the ability to make extra repayments, although any amount exceeding $10,000 p.a. in the form of extra repayments can attract an extra repayment fee. While you can repay the loan off ahead of schedule, an early loan termination fee applies if the loan is paid off during the fixed term. In addition, you can make interest-only payments for up to five years.
- Credit card. At the time of application you get to choose either a Bankwest Qantas MasterCard or a Bankwest More MasterCard (Classic, Gold and Platinum tiers only). Your product tier will be determined based on the credit limit you are approved for. All of these credit cards give you the ability to earn reward points, and the annual fee is waived under the package.
There aren't any application fees charged with this loan, and annual fees on packaged credit cards and offset accounts are also waived. Below are some of the fees that are charged with this loan:
- Annual loan package fee: $395. This fee is for the maintenance of your loan accounts and all the benefits that come with this package home loan.
- Portability fee: $350. This fee is charged if you sell your property and want to move your home loan to this new property.
