Standard Variable Rate Home Loans are the most popular type of loan, are linked to the official Reserve Bank rate and, as the name suggests, will vary with time depending on the market.
If rates go up so will your repayments and vice versa if they go down. This type of loan is traditionally the most flexible and may include optional features such offset, as the ability to make extra repayments, to redraw funds or to split your loan, just to name a few.
It may also be possible to incorporate an introductory discounted rate with this type of loan. Introductory rates are usually effective for the first 12 months of the loan, at which it then reverts back to the standard variable rate.
