First home buyers to benefit in latest home loan offer from online lender loans.com.au

Veteran fintech loans.com.au, known for driving competition in the home loans industry with innovative and low-rate offers, has announced it will be offering loans with Loan-to-Value ratios (LVR) up to 90% at reduced rates, in a bid to help hoist first home buyers up onto the property ladder.  

It comes after loans.com.au saw an increase in activity from people entering the housing market for the first time, as property prices plummet.

“People buying for the first time haven’t usually been able to accumulate as much equity as those who have already enjoyed the capital gains from home ownership but we don’t think they should be penalised for that,” said loans.com.au Managing Director Marie Mortimer.

“To help them take advantage of this long-awaited opportunity to enter the market, we have reduced our interest rate on LVR 90 Offset home loans to the same as LVR 80 and offered our streamlined Essentials home loan at LVR 90 for the first time.”

What’s the offer?

Essentials Variable
  • Low 3.64% p.a. (comparison rate 3.66% p.a.)
  • Now available up to 90% LVR
  • No ongoing fees
Offset Variable
  • Rate cut from 4.04% p.a. to a low 3.72% p.a. (3.74% p.a. comparison rate).
  • Now available up to 90% LVR
  • Offset account to help you save on interest

This means Aussie first home buyers will not only need a smaller deposit but can score a lower interest rate, all whilst getting into the market quicker.
