Understanding an Interest Only Home Loan

content image

With interest rates continuing to rise, many borrowers are turning to interest only home loans as a way to reduce their monthly mortgage payments. But what exactly is an interest only home loan and when should you consider applying for one?

An interest only home loan involves the borrower only making payments towards the interest owed on their loan during the initial period of repayment. This interest only period typically ranges from five to 10 years. Once this specified interest only period of time has elapsed, borrowers will then begin repaying both the principal and interest until the full balance of the loan is paid in full. This type of mortgage might be attractive to someone who wants lower monthly payments for the first five to 10 years of the loan or who anticipates having higher income in the future.

Overall, an interest only home loan can be beneficial for certain borrowers as it provides more flexibility in payment plans and cashflow management.
