Online lender, loans.com.au has announced a new cut to its Green Home loan, putting it 117 basis points (bp) below the average variable home loan rate for owner occupiers in Mozo’s database.

The new variable rates came into effect:

  • Green Home Loan: This eco-friendly home loan decreased by 20 bps, rates start at a low 1.88% p.a. (2.30% p.a. comparison rate*). At the time of writing, this green loan is amongst the lowest in Mozo’s database. 
  • Green Construction Loan: For those looking to build a green home, this loan starts at 1.88% p.a. (2.33% p.a. comparison rate*).
  • Green Construction Investor: This investor loan now starts at 2.34% p.a. (2.63% p.a. comparison rate*) for those looking to construct environmentally friendly buildings.

loans.com.au’s managing director, Marie Mortimer says that green loans are the future and they wanted to reward Australian families for choosing to build or buy a more environmentally friendly energy-efficient home.

“These days more and more consumers are looking for sustainable finance options. We were one of the first to launch a 'green' home loan discount, and now we are leading the market once again with the lowest 'green' home loan rates available in Australia,” she says.

In the last week, loans.com.au has been slashing its rates across its many products. Earlier this week it announced ultra low variable car loan rates.
