Tips for comparing home loans
Finding the best deal for your new or existing home loan requires careful comparison. Our tips:
- In each loan offer, look for the effective interest rate. It includes the full costs of the loan converted to the annual interest rate. With the effective interest rate, you can compare the costs of loans offered by various banks.
- Note that OP bonuses, earned by owner-customers of an OP cooperative bank, are not included in calculating the effective interest rate. However, OP bonuses could significantly lower your home loan costs because they can offset some or all your loan servicing costs. OP bonuses can also cover, for example, your household's insurance premiums and therefore help in meeting regular expenses. Read about OP bonuses
- Think whether you have prepared against borrower's risks during the long loan term. You can safeguard your ability to repay your loan in various ways, for example with interest rate protection products or insurance. Read more about securing your finances
- Find out how you can apply for changes in your loan's repayment plan or a repayment holiday during the loan term. At OP, you can do it yourself online. The changes made will be subject to a service charge specified in the list of service charges and fees. See an OP cooperative bank’s list of service charges and fees
The home loan is granted by an OP cooperative bank.
Collateral is needed for a loan that secures repayment to the bank. The home you buy covers the majority (usually 70%) of your loan. Side collateral may be needed for the residual amount.
You can apply for a government guarantee for your home loan. You can also contact your local OP cooperative bank for a loan guarantee or ask another person to guarantee your loan.
