Features of the Firstmac VIP Package Variable Home Loan

  • Discounted rate. With this package home loan, you’ll get a discount off the Firstmac standard variable rate. This discount can be applied to an unlimited number of loans.
  • Discounts and bonus rates on other Firstmac products. Not only do you get a discount on your home loan, you can also get a 10% discount on home and contents insurance with Firstmac, a 0.10% bonus on any Firstmac Term Deposit accounts opened, a $150 discount on Firstmac Lifestyle Protection Insurance premiums, and finally a free financial plan worth $750.
  • Get cash for referring your friends. If you refer a friend to Firstmac, they’ll reward you with $750 cash.
  • Maximum loan amount. You can borrow up to 90% of your property value with this loan, and up to $2,000,000, meaning this loan can be used for more expensive properties and with a smaller deposit than the usual 20%.
  • Flexible payment frequency. It’s up to you to decide whether you want to pay weekly, fortnightly, or monthly. Choose a frequency that would be easiest for you.
  • Additional repayments without penalty. Firstmac does not charge a penalty if you choose to make a lump sum repayment or extra repayments over the course of your loan. This can save you thousands of dollars in interest.
  • Free redraw facility. Have the confidence to make additional repayments knowing that there is a redraw facility which allows you to make unlimited withdrawals whenever there's an unexpected expense or emergency, or if you just want to use your additional funds for something else.
  • 100% Offset account. An offset account can help you save money on interest while also encouraging you to build up your savings. An offset account acts as a linked account which you can deposit and withdraw money from like a transaction account. The difference is any amounts in the offset account offset the interest payable on your loan. An offset account with $10,000 in it on a home loan of $300,000 would mean you pay interest on only $290,000.
