Nano Home Loans now available on new purchases

Family in kitchen managing home loan.

Online lender Nano, a two-time award winner in this year’s Mozo Experts Choice Awards, has extended its refinance home loan product to include new purchases. 

Owner occupiers buying their next property will now be able to take advantage of rates as low as 1.99% p.a. (1.99% p.a. comparison rate*) on the Nano Variable Home Loan

These interest rates are among the lowest in the Mozo database, but it bears mentioning that Nano will be joining the rest of the market in raising rates by 0.25% p.a. this month.

The new rates will take effect 19 May 2022, and reflect increased funding costs following the RBA’s recent decision to tighten monetary policy.

Loan amounts on Nano’s variable home loan offer range from $100,000 to $2.5 million. To be eligible, you must satisfy the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum household income of $100,000
  • Have a good credit rating
  • Be over 18 years old 
  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

How does Nano’s approval process work?

Unlike many other lenders, Nano skips bypass the need for pre-approval and offers homebuyers a version of complete approval via its data-driven application process.

Along with personal details (such as employment status, income, expenses), borrowers will have to provide information on the property they have their sights on. A digital valuation will be conducted in real time.

Nano will then check your credit score and verify your ID. If you’re deemed creditworthy, you’ll then be informed of how much you can borrow to purchase the property. According to Nano, the entire process should take no more than a few minutes.

Just keep in mind that this form of approval is not an offer to lend you the amount you’d like. And as always, approval is conditional upon the accuracy of the information you provide.
