What should you consider about the State Custodians Standard Variable Home Loan
This home loan is ideal for owner occupiers and first home buyers whether they are purchasing property or refinancing from another lender. You're also able to use this loan for personal or for investment use.
Pre-approval is also available, helping you to step into the market with confidence about how much you can borrow. Please be mindful that this loan is not suitable for construction purposes.
What are the features of the Standard Variable Home Loan?
- Fee free 100% offset account. You are able to link a 100% offset account to your mortgage, allowing you to deposit money into it and save on interest. Access the funds at any time with a debit MasterCard that lets you use it anywhere the MasterCard logo is displayed.
- Loan term. This loan has a maximum term of 30 years, so it can be used for a variety of long term investment strategies.
- Loan size. You can borrow from a minimum of $100,000 to a maximum of $1,500,000 to help suit a large range of properties at different price points. State Custodians are willing to accept amounts up to $2.5 million assessed on a case by case basis.
- Loan-to-Value Ratio (LVR). You can borrow up to 90% of the security property's price, which means if you only have a 5% deposit you can still qualify for this loan and get into a property sooner. However, be mindful that higher interest rates will apply for LVRs above , plus you'll need to pay Lender's Mortgage Insurance (LMI) that you can capitalise on your principal amount. For refinancing and debt consolidation, the maximum LVR is 90%.
- Interest-only option. You can make principal and interest repayments or interest-only repayments, which can make it a good choice for investors looking to maximise tax benefits. Be aware that there's a 10 year maximum limit on the interest-only option.
- Repayment methods. You can make repayments in any manner which suits you, from direct debit, phone banking from the offset or external bank account and salary credit or manual bank transfers.
- Redraw facility. The extra amounts you've paid on your loan or funds in your offset account are easily accessed online, via BPAY (may take 2-3 days to clear) and a linked Debit Mastercard.
- National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) approved. Offered to borrowers who are eligible under the partnership with the Australian Government and its states and territories to invest in affordable rental housing.
