Important notes about fixed rates:

  • You can’t fully fix an offset home loan. For an offset home loan, you must have at least $20K of your loan on a variable interest rate
  • An offset transaction account can’t be linked to a fixed loan account. This is because offset benefits are not available while the linked loan account is on a fixed interest rate
  • You can’t fix your interest rate on a construction account
  • Break costs may be payable if you end your fixed term early or you make extra repayments above the thresholds below:
    • If your BSB for your home loan account starts with 182 you can make extra repayments of up to $10K each year into each fixed account without incurring break costs
    • If your BSB for your home loan account starts with 183 you can make extra repayments up to 5% of the initial fixed amount each year without incurring break costs
  • You cannot access redraw whilst your account is fixed. Any extra payments you’ve made whilst your interest rate is fixed are only available at the end of your fixed rate period.

Fixed rate home loans have an interest rate that is fixed for a set period of time (typically from one to five years). At the end of the fixed rate term, the loan will usually switch to a variable rate.

Variable rate home loans have an interest rate that can move up or down according to market forces, which impacts the amount of interest you pay.

Macquarie home loans are flexible and allow you to access both a fixed rate and variable rate for your loan. As a borrower, this means you can:

  • have the entirety your home loan at a variable rate
  • have the entirety of your home loan at a fixed rate
  • split your home loan into fixed and variable portions.


Splitting your loan between variable and fixed interest rates gives you flexibility to structure your loan to suit your circumstances. You can divide your home loan in a variety of ways, such as locking in a fixed interest rate portion and variable interest rate portion, to take advantage of a mix of rate types over the life of your loan.

Please note: You can’t have the entirety of your offset home loan assigned to a fixed rate. You must have at least $20k of your offset home loan assigned to a variable interest rate.

Redraw is a product feature that allows you to make extra payments to reduce the outstanding balance of your home loan, which in turn reduces the amount of interest you pay. A redraw facility may allow you to access the extra payments you’ve made up to your loan limit at that time.

Redraw is a product feature enabled on most home loan products except for:
  • construction loans with a BSB starting with 183
  • accounts during a fixed rate period. Any extra payments you’ve made whilst your interest rate is fixed is only available at the end of your fixed rate period
  • SMSF home loans.


Your redraw balance may change over time depending on several factors, including:

  • loan limit changes
  • repayment amount changes
  • missed or late repayments and fees.

The below is an example explaining how redraw works where an extra payment has been made and the repayment amount has not changed on the home loan.

Sarah has a $300,000 home loan with a 30-year term. 10 years into her loan she makes an extra payment of $50,000. Her repayment amount does not change and the extra payment she’s made means she is paying less interest on her home loan. This results in Sarah paying off her home loan sooner. Because Sarah has maintained her repayments at the same amount, she can access her redraw balance up until her loan is paid off. If she continues to keep her loan open after it’s paid off, then available redraw will start reducing to ensure her home loan limit is $0 at the end of her loan term.

The home loan interest rate is the actual rate at which interest is charged on your home loan and doesn’t include fees.

The home loan comparison rate is a rate that helps you work out the true cost of the loan and allows you to compare rates amongst other lenders. It reduces to a single percentage figure the interest rate plus some of the fees and charges relating to a loan. As well as the comparison rate, it’s important to consider the features each loan offers and how valuable these are to you.
LVR is the amount you need to borrow, calculated as a percentage of the value of your property. For example, if your loan amount is $400K and your property value is $500K, then your LVR is 80%.
