What is an offset mortgage?

Buying a property or repaying an existing mortgage? Instead of a straight repayment, you can benefit from having an "offset" account linked to it, where you can put your savings and income.

The benefits of an offset mortgage

  • Anything you have in your offset account is taken into account when you pay your loan interest every month
  • That means, if you owe $250k but have $20k in your offset account, you're effectively only paying interest on the $230k actually owed
  • You pay your loan off far quicker
  • And save $$ money $$
  • What about the interest you would have got on your savings? Good news. By putting your money in your offset account, you are benefitting from the rate of interest that you pay your mortgage (e.g. 4%) and also you don't pay any tax.

Example of a mortgage WITHOUT an offset account:

Loan amount: $250,000
Interest rate: 5%
Loan repayment: $1,342.05/month (Principal amount: $300.38, Interest amount: $1,041.67)
Loan term: 30 years

Example of a mortgage WITH an offset account:

Loan amount: $250,000
Interest rate: 5%
Offset account Balance: $20,000
Loan repayment: $1,342.05/month (Principal amount: $383.72, Interest amount: $958.33)

Loan term: shortened to 26 years and 4 months, interest saved $33,281.75!
