How it works

Bankwest’s Fixed Rate Home Loan is great if you want the certainty of knowing what your interest rate and repayments will be.

Your interest rate is fixed over a period of one to five years. You can choose from weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments to help manage your budget. 1 If you decide to pay interest only, only monthly repayments are permitted.

Before going into a fixed-rate loan, it's worth thinking about the implications should you decide to break the loan during the fixed period, as break fees may apply.

At the end of the fixed-rate period, you may be able to fix a new rate for a further period, or your home loan will revert to the standard variable rate. 2 For owner occupiers the standard variable rate is the Mortgage Shredder Reference Rate. For investors the standard variable rate is the Investor Reference Rate. Close

What’s the comparison rate?
It’s a tool that can help you identify the truer cost of a loan. It’s calculated using a standard formula that includes the interest rate, as well as certain fees and charges relating to a loan (not all fees and charges are included).

Comparison rate warning:

Comparison rate is calculated on the statutory assumption of $150,000 loan over 25 years but the minimum required loan amount is $200,000 for the Complete Home Loan Package and Equaliser Home Loan. Different rates apply for different loan amounts and may depend on the duration of a fixed rate period or the ratio of the loan amount to the property value. WARNING: This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
