Compare our most popular Real Deal variable rate and fixed rate package home loans to see what suits your needs and understand the difference between fixed and variable interest rates.

"Based on interest rates, products and flexibility, Newcastle Permanent was way ahead of the other banks for us." -Molly and Michael.

Helping you into your home sooner

The Home Guarantee Scheme (HGS) is an Australian Government initiative supporting eligible home buyers to purchase a home sooner, through a national annual allocation of places under three separate Guarantees.

As of 1 July 2023, the Scheme’s expanded eligibility criteria now supports even more Australian permanent residents, combinations of joint home buyers, and even those who’ve previously owned property but haven’t done so for the past 10 years, to buy a home sooner.

If you're eligible to participate in the HGS, we'll work with you throughout your loan application to secure a place under the relevant Guarantee.

WARNING: This comparison rate is true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
**Real Deal At the current time, special interest rates are available for new borrowers applying for a Real Deal Home Loan for an owner occupied home with principal and interest repayments with a minimum balance of $150,000. Existing Newcastle Permanent customers are also eligible to receive the special interest rates if:
•They have a Real Deal Home Loan with principal and interest repayments and they increase it by a minimum of $150,000 in new borrowings; or
•They convert an existing Newcastle Permanent loan to a Real Deal Home Loan with principal and interest repayments and they increase it by a minimum of $150,000 in new borrowings.
Converted borrowings do not constitute new borrowings. The discount is the rate that is effective at the time the loan application is received by Newcastle Permanent and is determined by reference to the applicable Loan to Valuation Ratio (LVR). Currently, the LVR requirements are as follows:
•Special 1 – For loans with an LVR of less than or equal to 80%, a discount of 1.91% is deducted from the Real Deal Home Loan interest rate.
•Special 2 – For loans with an LVR of greater than 80%, and less than 95%, a discount of 1.26% is deducted from the Real Deal Home Loan interest rate.
Terms and conditions, fees, charges and credit criteria apply.

@To access your Premium Plus Package insurance discount please visit us at your local branch or alternatively call us on 13 19 87. This discount is not available online.
&Minimum Premiums: If you are eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts and the effect of the subsequent discount will be reduced. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two 10% discounts consecutively means that you will not see the full benefit of both these discounts. Discounts do not apply to taxes or government charges. Discounts do not apply to optional covers for Domestic workers’ compensation / Landlord workers’ compensation, and may not apply to other optional covers (if available and selected). Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and may only apply to the extent that any minimum premium is not reached.
