ANZ Home Loans
Take advantage of special interest rates for your home loan if you have your salary credited to your ANZ transactional account.
As one of New Zealand’s largest companies and one of the best-known banking institutions, ANZ takes financial responsibility seriously whether it is dealing with individuals, families, small businesses or farmers.
Currently financing over 30% of home loans in New Zealand with its range of mortgage options, ANZ takes the hard work out of navigating the system with free home loan seminars and Home Loan Coaches to guide you through the process.
Home loans offered by ANZ
- Fixed rate. When you take out a fixed-rate home loan, your interest rate stays the same for the period you choose between 6 months and 5 years. Rates can vary from 3.65% to 4.85% depending on the term and whether you have a special or standard interest rate. A maximum loan term of 30 years applies, but you can make an extra 5% repayment of the outstanding balance each year without the Early Repayment Recovery penalty.
- Floating rate. With a floating interest rate mortgage starting at 5.19%, you can make extra repayments whenever you like without penalty. Your interest rate can go up and down depending on what is happening in the market and you can switch to a fixed interest rate at any time.
- Flexible. A flexible home loan gives you a revolving credit facility on your transactional account with an interest rate of 5.30% and no maximum loan term. No regular payments are required so you can reduce your loan balance when it suits you, but ANZ can ask you to repay the loan or reduce your credit limit. A $12.50 monthly account fee applies.
- Healthy Home Loan Package. This loan package is available to customers who are buying, building, or renovating a home to a 6 Homestar rating or higher, which means that the home is warmer, healthier and more sustainable. Your full salary will need to be deposited into your ANZ transactional account and you’ll receive a discount of up to 1.00% per annum on your fixed, floating or flexible interest rate.

- Home improvement loan top up. If you need some extra cash for home renovations or landscaping, you can top up your mortgage to help with those costs.
