The monthly repayments on the same $300,000 home loan, but with the lowest standard variable home loan rate in the market (3.48 per cent from Homestar’s Standard Offset Variable ) are $1,498.65. That is a monthly saving of $198 and an annual saving of more than $2,400.But many borrowers can save much more than that.

This loan is specifically designed for the higher risk profile of self-employed borrowers. The monthly repayments on a 25 year, $300,000 home loan charging around 6.91 per cent are around $2,100 per month.
