What is the interest rate and fees?
The interest rate on a Household Loan is 4.95%p.a. (4.98%p.a. comparison rate*), which is a competitive rate for a reverse mortgage or equity release product.
Household Capital charges an Establishment Flat Fee (including valuation and conveyancing) of $950.
Are reverse mortgage interest rates fixed or variable?
Reverse mortgages are only available with variable rates; the main benefit of this is that you have flexible repayment options. A Household Loan may be repaid, in part or full, at any time without penalty.
Why are reverse mortgage interest rates higher than standard mortgages?
Reverse mortgage interest rates are generally higher than a standard mortgage because there is no obligation for borrowers to make repayments until the end of the loan.
Why is the mortgage interest rate important?
The lower the reverse mortgage interest rate on your loan, the more of your home equity you retain and can access to fund your long-term retirement needs. It’s that simple.
