Key features

The AMP Bank Essential Home Loan is available to both owner occupiers and investors willing to make principal and interest repayments on their loan, and it comes with relatively low variable rates starting at 2.29% (2.32% comparison rate*). On top of that, borrowers won't need to pay any application, settlement or ongoing services fees, although there is a legal fee of $295 and a $100 discharge fee.

So who exactly can apply for the Essential Home Loan and what kind of variable rate will be available? Here's the lowdown:

  • Owner occupiers borrowing $100,000+ (LVR <80%): 2.29% (2.32% comparison rate*)
  • Owner occupiers borrowing $100,000+ (LVR <90%): 3.34% (3.37% comparison rate*)
  • Owner occupiers borrowing $40,000 to $99,000 (LVR <90%): 4.00% (4.03% comparison rate*)
  • Investors borrowing from $40,000 (LVR <90%): 4.59% (4.62% comparison rate*)

Borrowers will have the flexibility to choose between making weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments, and they can also make additional payments through the extra repayments facility for free. There's even the the option to dip into those extra payments down the track through the redraw facility (minimum redraw amount of $2,000 applies). 

Just remember that the Essential Home Loan Other doesn't come with an offset account attached, or the option of taking a repayment holiday.

Who is it good for

Given the relatively competitive variable rates on offer to owner occupiers with LVRs <80%, the AMP Bank Essential Home Loan could be a low cost option for refinancers with built-up equity or new buyers with a decent deposit.

Any catches

While lower rates are available to owner occupiers, rates can go up to 4.59% (4.62% comparison rate*) for investors. So investors may want to compare other investment loan options if they're looking for a lower rate.
