Switch between variable & fixed interest rates

When you apply for your home loan, one of your key decisions is to choose a fixed interest rate, a variable interest rate, or a combination of both. Throughout the life of your home loan, you’ll have the opportunity to switch between a fixed or variable interest rate, or to switch to a split rate home loan.


Each type of loan offers benefits so you can decide which suits your individual situation and your outlook on interest rate movements.  If you currently have a BankSA variable rate home loan and think a fixed rate is a better fit, you can make the switch via Internet Banking or the Mobile App. Find out how.
