What will it cost me?

A Midkey is a "No Monthly Payments" Home Loan. Its simple interest and payments are not paid until the end of the loan.

No monthly payments or ongoing fees
No compound interest (simple interest only)
Low interest at roughly 1% - 2% higher than a traditional home loan
An innovative, once-off Midkey Deferral Fee at the end, which is a proportion of any increase in your home’s value, agreed at the start. No increase, no Midkey Deferral Fee*
Variable simple interest2

At a rate that is approximately 1% to 2% higher than a traditional compounding, variable interest home mortgage.

A fixed proportion

A fixed proportion of any increased value of your home3 aligning our outcomes with your outcomes.

*Additional fees include an establishment fee and incidental fees (being loan processing and valuation fees). No ongoing fees.

Before

Now with Midkey

You cannot access additional debt

Your home’s value has risen faster than your debt, and you have some excess home equity. The bank is unwilling to provide you with more traditional debt because your income has not increased at the same rate as your house. You would like to renovate, pay for education, go on a holiday or make other important payments.

Enjoy your excess equity now

Use a Midkey "No Monthly Payments" Home Loan to access your useable home equity. You are free to use it to renovate your home, pay for education, go on a holiday or make other important payments (subject to eligibility criteria).

You are struggling with the regular payments on your debt

Interest rate rises and increases in the cost of living are impacting your lifestyle and making it harder to make the monthly payments on your traditional debt.

Reduce your regular debt payments

If you have useable equity in your home, you can use a Midkey to reduce or replace your traditional debt and, in doing so, reduce or eliminate your regular monthly interest and principal repayments (subject to eligibility criteria).

1 The 5% initial valuation discount allows Midkey to provide short-term loans (as well as long-term loans) that are still economically viable for Midkey and its investors.
2 The Midkey loan interest rate is set at a premium to the RBA Cash Rate (typically, this is a 3.25% premium).
3 In exchange for deferring all your principal and interest payments to the end, a Midkey Deferral Fee must be paid at the end of your loan. The Midkey Deferral Fee is a proportion of any increase in your property’s Agreed Initial Value. The proportion is your Midkey loan amount to your property’s Agreed Initial Value and is agreed at the start of the loan. For example, if your Midkey loan is 10% of your property’s Agreed Initial Value, the fee proportion for your Midkey Deferral Fee is 10%.
4 Excluding fees such as: an establishment fee of 1.5% of the loan value, with a minimum of $3,000, valuation fees at the start and the end of the Midkey loan (range: $330 to $2,650 per valuation depending on the property’s value. If the property’s value exceeds $5 million, a valuer’s quote must be obtained), document preparation costs and out-of-pocket expenses (approx. $450), a registration fee ($187) and a discharge fee ($500).
5 This is an estimate and assumes a 30-year 1st mortgage whose interest rate is 1% p.a. lower than the simple interest rate payable for your Midkey loan.
6 After deducting the principal amount of the Midkey loan, the Midkey interest payment, the Midkey Deferral Fee, and the mandatory 1st mortgage home loan principal payments (note: the Midkey fees set out in footnote 4 above have not been deducted to calculate the estimate).
