Home Loan Interest rates
We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls as a result of COVID-19, but we are here to help. If you are concerned about your Home Loan repayments, please go to the home loans support page. If you are a Business customer and need help, please go to the business relief page.
LVR stands for the initial loan to value ratio at loan approval. LVR is the amount of your loan compared to the Bank’s valuation of your property offered to secure your loan expressed as a percentage.
For example, a loan of $400,000 to buy a property worth $500,000 results in a loan to value ratio of 80%. The interest rates below are for new loans. Home loan rates are set based on the initial LVR and don’t change because of changes to the LVR during the life of the loan.
