As the name suggests, variable rates aren’t fixed and neither is your minimum repayment.

When the rate drops, you pay a little less. When it goes up, you pay a little more.

The rate isn’t the only flexible ingredient, though. Our variable rate home loans also offer many convenient features to help you pay off your loan sooner.

Struggling to save up enough of a deposit to buy your first home or first investment property? Then our Family Guarantee could be just the thing to get you into a place you can call your own. Our Family Guarantee enables first home buyers with limited savings to enter the property market sooner*.

Here's how it works – If your parents or other family members have equity in their home, investment property or have a Term Deposit with Credit Union SA, you can use that equity or investment to guarantee a portion of your loan.

Which family members can provide a Family Guarantee?

  • Parents
  • Parents-in-law
  • Step-parents

Credit Union SA will consider the provision of guarantees by other immediate family members where a guarantee from the above-mentioned family members would not be appropriate.

When can a Family Guarantee be used?

Guarantees from family members can only be provided to assist first home buyers/investors to:

  • purchase a new property;
  • purchase an established property;
  • build a new home.

Where a borrower is entitled to a government grant, the entitlement will not be affected by the provision of a Family Guarantee. Family Guarantees will not usually be accepted by the Credit Union where offered to support borrowings for a second/subsequent property or for any other purpose.
