A variable interest rate on your home loan allows you flexibility to use your savings to reduce the interest you pay by using offset accounts. With up to 10 offset accounts per loan account†, you can structure your offset accounts in a way that makes your savings work for you.
With a variable interest rate on your home loan, there’s no limit on additional payments. Whether you’re using an offset or redraw facility, extra repayments could help you pay off your home loan faster and reduce the amount of interest you pay over the life of your loan.
Sometimes it’s good to have a little buffer in your back pocket. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have unlimited, fee-free access to any additional repayments you’ve made on your variable home loan with our redraw facility.

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