homeloans.com.au rewarding customers with home loan rate drops

couple excited to be able to afford a new home with low rates

Online lender homeloans.com.au announced a new initiative that may give their existing customers a surprise out-of-cycle rate drop to as little as 1.89% p.a. (1.89% p.a. comparison rate).

The ‘Fair Go’ initiative by the online lender came after working with renowned Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist to create a reward system for loyal customers.

“Some banks will typically offer better rates to new customers, leaving existing customers on a higher rate. That doesn’t seem fair at all. Customer loyalty should be rewarded, and homeloans.com.au’s new Fair Go Guarantee is a great way to do that,” said Gilchrist.

The Fair Go system offers includes:

  • Fair Go Rates: where the lender will ensure to keep its home loan rates competitive.
  • Fair Go Fees: where upfront, ongoing and exit fees are eliminated. 
  • Fair Go Guarantee: where current customers will not pay higher rates than those offered to new customers.

“Doing things a certain way because every other lender does it that way is not good enough anymore. Our customers deserve better,” said Tim Boys, homeloans.com.au head of marketing.
