Comparison Rate

| | 1 minute read

It can be difficult to compare home loans that have different interest rates and fees. This is why credit providers must give a comparison rate when they advertise a rate or a weekly payment for home loans. The comparison rate includes the interest rate or weekly repayment amount, plus most fees and charges.

A comparison rate gives you an indication of the true cost of a loan. It’s a way of comparing loans equally by including known fees (upfront, ongoing and exit) on top of the interest rate and is calculated specifically on a $150,000 loan over 25 years. As this is a precise reference point, we recommend that you look at the cost of the mortgage over the entire loan term (which uno provides) because it’s more accurate and tailored to your situation.
