Frequently asked questions

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%. 
Fixed rate home loans have an interest rate that is fixed for a set period of time (typically 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 offer the flexibility of allowing you to have some of your home loan at a fixed rate and some of your home loan at a variable rate.
 
Macquarie home loans offer the flexibility of allowing borrowers to:
•             Have all of their home loan at a variable rate
•             Have all of their home loan at a fixed rate
•             Split their mortgage into fixed and variable portions.
 
Once you’ve completed an application with your broker or home loan specialist, we can (in most cases) provide you with a pre-approval within one business day if your application qualifies. Once you are successful with a property and provide us with all required documentation, we work quickly to provide you with unconditional approval and open your home loan account. 
 
This timing depends on how quickly we can verify your identity, assess your application, and transfer security.
 
We’ll let you know by email if your application is successful and when your account is open and ready to use.
 
If you have any questions about the status of your application, talk to your broker or your home loan specialist.
If you have an Offset Home Loan account with a BSB starting with 182

You can open up to 10 offset accounts which can be linked to an offset home loan account if you are a single or joint borrower. Offset accounts aren't available for any other type of home loan.

To open additional offset accounts:

1. Go to macquarie.com.au/everyday-banking/transaction-account
2. Go to Open an account and submit an online application to open a Macquarie transaction account as an existing customer
 
a. To do this select Yes for the question Do you have any other Macquarie products?
b. Enter your Macquarie ID and Password to login
c. If this new account is a joint account with another borrower, ensure you have ticked Yes for the question Are you applying with someone else? and have them enter their Macquarie ID and Password in Step 4 of the application

3. Once you have completed the application, you’ll need to contact us on 1800 007 722 (+61 2 8245 4383) to switch and link your transaction account to your offset home loan.

A Debit Mastercard will automatically be sent along with your online application to the postal address linked to your profile.

Please note, you can't link an offset account to a fixed home loan account.

If you are a company or trust borrower you cannot open additional offset accounts after your home loan settles.

If you have an Offset Home Loan account with a BSB starting with 032
 
Additional offset accounts aren't available.
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 allows 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 032
  • 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.
