Features of the St.George Portfolio Home Equity Loan Advantage Package
Using the St.George Portfolio Home Equity Loan Advantage Package you can borrow up to 90% of your home’s value to help fund your investments. The main features of the St.George Portfolio Home Equity Loan Advantage Package are:
- Have up to 10 different sub-accounts for all the investments you purchase. If you buy more than one investment you can place each investment into a sub-account. Each sub-account can be managed separately and can even have different ownership applied to it. This is handy if you have multiple investments with different investment partners. Each sub-account will also have separate statements issued for them which will allow each of your partners to receive their relevant account summaries.
- Choose your repayment frequency. St.George gives you a choice in how you pay the Portfolio Home Equity Loan off. You can choose between weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments depending on your pay structure and your financial obligations. You may also want to pay your wage directly into the account to lower the interest which accumulates on the loan.
- The ability to borrow more. If you want to purchase further investments in the future or upgrade your original investments the Portfolio Home Equity Loan Advantage Package will allow you to do so.
- Special package offers. There are additional features available with the St.George Portfolio Home Equity Loan Advantage Package. The Advantage Package offers a range of special offers. You can get a discount or exemption on administration fees, establishment fees, credit card fees and monthly service fees. You can also receive special rates such as a 0.70% p.a discount on the variable interest rate and up to 0.15% p.a off the fixed interest rate. In addition you can also receive free transaction and credit accounts.
- You can choose to fix your interest rate. If you'd like to fix the interest rate on this loan you can request to do so. With the added flexibility of this option you can make sure that if interest rates reach a good low you can take advantage of the rates and set them in stone.
- Deposit protect bond option. By paying a deposit protect bond you'll not have to put the deposit money onto the loan. Instead, you can earn interest from the deposit money while paying off your loan. It also ensures that if the bond money is not paid off by settlement then St.George will pay it.
