This is an indication of your ability to borrow. You may choose to seek a pre-approval at any time to understand your borrowing capacity, but it is not a guarantee of funding or a mortgage offer.
Variable rates can change anytime and will affect your regular repayments.
A fixed rate has been fixed at a certain rate, so it stays the same for the entire fixed rate period. This means that your repayments also stay the same for the same 'fixed' period.
Generally the interest cost of your home loan is calculated daily on the outstanding balance of your loan.
An example of how daily interest is calculated on a $400,000 loan with a fixed rate of 4% p.a. is as follows:
($400,000 x 4%) / 365 = $43.83
Some loans will allow you to directly deposit extra money into your loan or offset account to reduce your interest payments. To determine the repayments on your loan, see the home loan repayment calculator.
A property valuation report is completed by a licensed property valuer. They will determine the value of a property through the use of data based on location, amenities, structural condition and recent sales of similar local properties.
