Defining Different Types of Home Loans

Whether you're a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner, having a firm grasp on the various types of Home Loans is crucial. Let's delve into the definitions of some common terms you're likely to encounter on your homeownership journey:

Owner Occupied Home Loans:

Owner Occupied Home Loans, as the name suggests, are loans specifically designed for individuals intending to live in the property they purchase. These loans typically offer more favorable terms and interest rates compared to investment property loans, reflecting the lower risk associated with owner-occupied properties.

Interest Only Home Loans:

Interest Only Home Loansallow borrowers to pay only the interest on the loan for a specified period, usually between five to ten years. During this period, the borrower isn't required to make any repayments towards the principal amount borrowed. While this can result in lower initial repayments, it's important to note that once the interest-only period ends, repayments usually increase significantly as both principal and interest must be paid.

Principal & Interest Home Loans:

Principal & Interest Home Loans involve regular repayments that cover both the interest on the loan and a portion of the principal amount borrowed. These repayments are typically structured to gradually reduce the outstanding balance over the loan term until it's fully paid off. This type of loan offers more predictability and stability compared to interest-only loans and helps borrowers build equity in their property over time.

Variable Rate Home Loans:

Variable Rate Home Loans have interest rates that can fluctuate over the loan term in response to changes in the official cash rate set by the central bank or other market conditions. While these loans offer flexibility and the potential for lower interest rates during periods of economic stability, borrowers should be prepared for the possibility of increased repayments if interest rates rise.

Fixed Rate Home Loans:

Fixed Rate Home Loans lock in an interest rate for a set period, typically between one to five years, providing borrowers with certainty and stability regarding their repayments. Regardless of fluctuations in the market interest rates, the interest rate and repayments remain unchanged for the fixed period. However, borrowers may miss out on potential savings if market interest rates decrease during the fixed-rate period.

Bridging Loans:

Bridging loans are short-term loans designed to assist borrowers in purchasing a new property before selling their existing one. These loans bridge the finance gap between the purchase of a new property and the sale of the current one, allowing borrowers to access funds for the new purchase without having to wait for the sale settlement. Bridging loans are typically interest-only and may involve higher interest rates and fees due to the increased risk associated with owning two properties simultaneously.

Understanding these different types of Home Loans empowers borrowers to make informed decisions that align with their financial goals and circumstances. Before committing to any loan, it's advisable to seek advice from a qualified Mortgage Broker from Living Home Loans to ensure you choose the most suitable Home Loan option for your individual needs.
