The St.George Super Fund Home Loan features
For people who run their own super fund and are interested in purchasing an investment property, here is some information about the St.George Super Fund home loan that can help you make a decision on whether or not this is the right loan for your superfund:
- Variable rate. The St.George Super Fund home loan has a variable rate, which means that the interest rate on the home loan can be changed by the bank. Variable rate home loans often have a rate which is cheaper than a fixed rate home loan because the banks will often factor in future interest rate fluctuations. If you like the sound of this loan, but you would prefer a fixed rate than St.George offer, you can view a fixed rate super fund home loan here.
- Offset account. The Super Fund home loan has the option of either having a 100% or partial percentage offset account. This means that any savings that the super fund may have in another account can be used to offset either all or part of the interest being paid on the home loan. This can be a great option for super funds that have large savings.
- You can make extra repayments. You have the option of being able to make extra repayments on your home loan up to the amount of $10,000 per year with a St.George Super Fund home loan. Being able to make these extra repayments is a great way of reducing the total amount to be paid in interest and the length of your loan.
- Several payment options. You can have either weekly, fortnightly, or monthly repayments on your St.George Super Fund home loan. This means that you're able to structure the repayment of your home loan in a way that best suits your financial situation.
- Establishment and monthly fees. A $1,500 establishment fee applies to the St.George Bank Super Fund home loan, plus an monthly fee of $12. Fees may also apply for additional features.
Benefits of having a Super Fund Home Loan
There are several benefits of having a Super Fund home loan but like any financial product, your super fund home loan has to be managed correctly for you to be able to take full advantage of these benefits:
- Diversify your self-managed super fund. By having a St.George Super Fund home loan, your superfund will only have to repay your loan payments, which means that your self-managed superfund can have cash freed up to be invested in other ways, such as term deposits or shares. This will help ensure that your self-managed super fund will keep performing well.
- Use rental repayments to help repay the loan. With a St.George Super Fund home loan, you can use the rental payments from your investment property to help offset the repayment on the property, which helps the super fund find money that can be used to fund other investments.
