An offset account is a transactional account that is linked to your home loan. Any balance in this account is offset against an equivalent portion of your home loan balance and generates an interest reduction on your loan.
If you’re an investor looking to buy or refinance property with a 7 Star Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERs), 7 Star Residential Efficiency Scorecard, or a Green Star Designed or Certified home from Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), our Investor Green Plus Home Loan could be for you.
As sustainability becomes a priority for many individuals looking for ways to reduce energy consumption resulting in lower utility bills, and the demand for eco-friendly properties continues to rise, by investing in a 7 Star rated or higher property, you could future-proof your investment against evolving environmental regulations and shifting market preferences. If your investment property already has the 7 Star or higher certification and you would like to take advantage of our rewarding rate, give us a call or apply online to refinance your existing loan to our Investor Green Plus Home Loan.
Our Investor Green Plus Home Loan offers all the flexibility and benefits of our Investor Premium Package Home Loan, including a 100% Offset Account with an Eco Visa Debit Card, redraw, unlimited repayments, and a 0.10% bonus on Term Deposit rates.
To be eligible for Gateway’s Investor Green Plus Home Loan, the property must have one of the following; a 7 Star Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS), a 7 Star Residential Efficiency Scorecard, or a Green Star Designed or Certified home from Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). This needs to be evidenced with a copy of your certificate from either NatHERS, Residential Efficiency Scorecard or GBCA. For a security property in the ACT, which has its own system for energy rating, a certificate from an accredited assessor licensed in the ACT showing at least a 7 Star rating is also acceptable.
