What Makes Maybank Stand Out to Borrowers

In general, Maybank offers competitive introductory interest rates, but does not stand out in terms of total interest charged because its rates rise quickly in later years of the loan's tenure. This characteristic makes it a good option for borrowers that plan to refinance their loan several times throughout its duration. With that said, it is important to compare rates from multiple lenders as home loan rates change frequently.

Maybank HDB Home Loans Interest Rates

Maybank tends to offer competitive first-year interest rates for fixed and floating rate HDB loans. However, other banks have offered HDB loans with lower total cost of borrowing. This is because Maybank's particularly competitive fixed interest rates are significantly more expensive after their lock-in period expires. The table below displays Maybank's current interest rates for HDB loans.

Maybank Private Home Loans Interest Rates

Maybank generally offers low first-year fixed and floating rates for private home loans. That being said, the bank's rates increase after the first few years, making it a better loan option for individuals that plan to refinance frequently than those that plan to keep their original loan terms through the loan's duration. For a live look at Maybank's private home loan rates, refer to the table below.

Many lenders in Singapore offer subsidies to borrowers for legal fees associated with home loan refinancing. Maybank offers credits of 0.4% of the loan up to S$2,000 for loans of at least S$200,000. This is quite similar to other banks, though Maybank's offer is more advantageous for borrowers with home loans of S$200,000 - SS$300,000 as many other lenders do not offer subsidies for these relatively small loan amounts to these borrowers.
