The calculator is intended as a general guide only.  The calculations are based on various assumptions including that:

  • A minimum 20% equity will apply to the home loan.  View details for home loans with less than 20% equity.
  • your current savings account(s) balance, average transaction account(s) balance and your regular savings will remain unchanged during the loan term, However, these factors may vary over that time frame.
  • the Choices Offset floating interest rate will remain unchanged during the loan term,  However, this interest rate is subject to change at any time without notice.
  • the interest rate applying to the home loan without offset is the same as the current Choices Offset floating interest rate.   However, other interest rates may apply to home loans without offset and this rate will also be subject to change over the loan term.
  • the home loan balance will not be increased during the loan term, no additional lump sum payments will be made, and all payments will be made in full and on time.
Taking into account these assumptions and the information you have entered, the savings displayed is the difference between the total interest paid on a home loan without offset and the total interest paid on a home loan with Choices Offset, and the effective interest rate is the interest rate you would effectively pay over the reduced lifetime of the loan.
