The best home loans in Australia for 2022

Interest rate rises are now on the cards for 2022, making it more important than ever to ensure that your home loan stacks up against the competition. An uncompetitive interest rate could translate into hundreds of dollars in extra monthly repayments when rates start to rise in earnest.

The good news is that Australia’s best home loans for 2022 have recently been rated by our team of experts for the annual Mozo Experts Choice Home Loan Awards.^ 

Drawing on over 65 years of combined financial services experience, our experts analysed 441 home loans from 89 lenders for this year's awards. Every loan was assessed on rates, fees and features, with just the top 10% in each award category typically receiving the expert tick of approval.

The takeaway? Borrowers could save thousands! Choosing the best value home loan over the average big bank loan could save a typical borrower $100,600 over the life of the loan.* 

Don’t just take our word though, see for yourself by comparing five of the best home loans of 2022 below, hand-selected and reviewed by our editors from the full list of award winners….
