So, how does the APlus Home Loan work exactly?
The APlus Home Loan works by combining your home loan, overdraft, current, and savings accounts, and debit card into a single account. Any payments or money deposited into this account will automatically reduce the loan amount on which you are being charged the daily debit interest. This results in significant savings over the lifetime of your loan.
Your income and savings will be directly deposited into this account. For every Euro you deposit into your APlus account, you will automatically reduce how much you owe.
This works similarly to automatic prepayments, except you retain full control over the money in your APlus account. Therefore, you can still use the money deposited in this account to make payments or withdraw money from an ATM. The only requirement is that you make your original repayment schedule on time.
Essentially, you will be using any extra money in your APlus account to reduce the loan amount on which interest is charged. This is a smarter way for you to use your money, making the dream of paying back your loan early very achievable.
APlus enables you to make your idle money work for you.
A representative example of an APlus Home Loan
On a fully utilised APlus Home Loan of €200,000 at a variable interest rate of 3.5% per annum, the Annual Percentage Rate Charge (APRC)would equal 3.56% per annum. The loan would be repayable through 480 equal monthly instalments, i.e. a period of 40 years. Each monthly instalment would equal €780.62.
The total sum payable throughout the term of the loan will be €374,797.60. This sum constitutes of:
- €200,000 capital (the loan amount)
- €174,697 interest
- €100 processing fee
A processing fee equal to 0.25% of the loan amount minimum €100 will be collected at the time of issuing the sanction letter. Once the contract has been signed, this amount will then be partially refunded (the bank will only retain €100 as a processing fee).
Assumptions in the above calculation
Kindly take note of the following assumptions made with regards to the above calculation:
The APRC calculation is based on the following assumptions:
- The consumer lending bank base rate, which is currently 2.25%, remains unchanged throughout the period of the loan.
- The facility is fully utilised within the first 3 months of being sanctioned.
- Since APlus acts as a hybrid between a traditional home loan and an overdraft facility, the above calculation assumes that the facility is always in debit and follows the repayment schedule.
