Offset home loans are a popular term people often ask about, usually because someone they know has suggested it. It is important to understand that in some circumstances, an offset loan might not be the best option, as they often attract a higher interest rate or ongoing fees.
In which circumstances are Offset home loans is a good option. Investors who have additional funds they do not wanted to deposit directly onto the loan account. Customers who have substantial savings and either for budgeting, savings or other reasons do not want to deposit the money directly onto the home loan.
For everyone else, I would compare the cheapest offset home loan with a basic variable rate home loan. Consider the difference
in cost between the two loans before making a decision.
