IO Loan Rates



From: Trina Blum

Hi again,

Does anyone know of a website that has a calculator that can be used to work out what repayments are for an interest-only loan? The ones I've looked at work the repayments out on a P&I loan.

Also I have noticed that the banks don't list their interest only loan rates just P&I, business,personal etc. Do I have to phone the bank to find out the IO rate or is there a website or newspaper that would give me the rate?

Most of the bank sites I've seen do show the IO (investment) loan rates.

As for calculating the interest payment, you don't need a web site, just a trusty old calculator.

Simply mulitply the loan amount by the percentage rate, and that gives you your annual interest bill. Divide it by 12 for a monthly figure, or by 52 for a weekly figure.


$100000 loan (IO)
6.5% interest rate

Annual interest payment = $100000 * 0.065 = $6500
Monthly interest payment = $6500 / 12 = $542
Weekly interest payment = $6500 / 52 = $125

major lenders do not normally have a difference between their Interest only and P&I rates. Most (but not all) loans can be taken with an interest only option.

Look at the site. If that doesn't work go to the site with an address before the /. Once at the surveys of all interest ratesyou can drill down to one of the lenders and they offer ways of calculating loans, payments, etc.
