Frequently asked questions

When determining the interest rate, lenders calculate the risk associated for different types of home loans. Investor home loans are generally assessed with higher risk than owner occupier home loans because rental income is not guaranteed and there is a chance that the property may be vacant for periods of time.

At Macquarie, we offer two home loan products that can be used by property investors, an offset home loan and a basic home loan.

Our offset home loan allows you to establish up to 10 offset accounts for each variable interest rate loan account. This home loan is beneficial if you want to structure your savings in ways that work for you. You may want to set up an offset account to receive rental payments from your tenants. You can also establish an offset account to accrue savings for property-related expenses, such as strata or council rates. The offset home loan has an annual package fee of $248 per annum.

Our basic home loan gives you a simple solution with a great rate and no account management fees. This home loan can be good for investors who want a simple loan structure with no additional accounts attached to it.

Equity is the difference between the fair market value of your property and the amount you have left on your loan balance. Some investors may want to leverage the equity in their existing property for an investment home loan. Remember, the value of your property is subject to current market conditions. You may be able to release more equity in a market where house prices are rising, than in one where they’re falling.

In addition to the usual documents required for owner occupier home loans, you will need to provide documents to help us verify rental income. For example, rental income statements or tenancy agreement. The type of documents will depend on whether you a refinancing an existing investment home loan or applying for a new investment property home loan.

Your borrowing capacity will depend on a range of factors. Try our borrowing power calculator for a tailored estimate of how much you could borrow.

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%.

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.

Additional information

*

Rate applies for new loans when you borrow up to 60% of the property value with a principal and interest repayment variable rate loan. Subject to change without notice.

The comparison rates are based on a loan for $150,000 and a term of 25 years. 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.

Fixed rate loans may be subject to significant break costs. Please refer to the loan contracts for terms and conditions regarding break costs. At the end of the fixed rate period, the interest rate will revert to the discount variable rate applicable at that time.

Open up to 10 offset accounts per variable loan account if you have an individual or joint borrower home loan. Company and trust borrowers can open up to 4 offset accounts which must be opened at application. Offset accounts cannot be linked to fixed rate loan accounts. For split loans, with a fixed and variable rate portion, the variable rate loan account must have a minimum limit of $20,000 to qualify for an offset account.
