A quick guide to types of mortgage.
A table mortgage is repaid by periodic repayments of principal and interest over the loan term, resulting in a declining principal balance and eventual repayment of the loan.
Should you choose fixed or floating?
When you choose a fixed rate home loan, the interest rate you pay stays the same for a given period (anything from six months to five years). At the end of the term, you can either fix again for a new term or switch to a floating rate. Fixed rates make budgeting easier and are nearly always lower than the floating rate.
- Your repayments stay the same over the term, so there are no surprises.
- Lenders compete for the best fixed rate, so there are usually some great deals going.
- If economists are predicting a rise in interest rates, you can lock in a lower rate for a long term.
- If you want to increase repayments or pay a lump sum off your loan, you’ll probably get hit with a fee.
- If you choose a longer term, there’s always the chance floating rates will dip to below the fixed rate you’re paying.
- You may have to pay a ‘break fee’ if you want to sell your property or move to a floating rate before the term is up.
- You can increase your repayments or pay off a lump sum at any time, without any penalty.
- To simplify your financial life and pay less interest, you may be able to consolidate other borrowing into your floating rate home loan.
- Floating rates are nearly always higher than fixed rates.
- You’ll have less disposable income if repayments go up in response to an interest rate increase.
