Expert review

The Athena fixed rate home loan is a basic fixed rate solution that caters to both owner-occupiers and investors.

Although the interest rates are competitive for a fixed rate loan, it doesn’t come with the option for an offset account or flexibility with making extra repayments. You can only make additional repayments towards your loan of 5% of the outstanding balance and you are unable to draw those funds back down.

However, another positive is that the loan continues Athena’s trend of not having any fees associated with it. In the end, the comparison rate is actually much lower than the initial interest rate.

    I only have pension money. Can I apply for fixed interest loan.
    I read that your fixed interest rate was only about
    About 5% but after I filled out my information the rate suddenly went up to about 6%.. What is the correct rate?

      Hi Rose,

      The comparison rate for Athena Home Loans is 5.37% but the actual interest rate is 6.09%. However, to qualify for Athena Home Loan, at least one applicant must be employed (PAYG).

      Kind regards,
      Rebecca
