Mozo editorial review Aussie Select Basic Variable

Last updated: 7 July 2020.

binocular icon
What's hot
  • 2.70% interest rate (2.72% comparison rate*)
  • No ongoing service fees
  • Free extra repayments and redraw facility
  • Split account option
What's not
  • $330 legal and $535 discharge fees
Mozo snapshot

It may be in the name, but the Aussie Select Basic Variable home loan is far from basic. With competitive low rates starting from just 2.70% (2.72% comparison rate*), no ongoing service fees to worry about and handy features like a redraw facility and the ability to make free extra repayments, this is a home loan that could prove a great companion to any homeowner.  

You’ll even have the option of splitting the Select Basic Variable loan so a portion of it is a fixed rate!

Key features

Aussie are well known for their mantra “we’ll save you”, and when it comes to the Select Basic Variable home loan that slogan really holds up. Both owner occupiers and investors will be able to borrow amounts between $100,000 and $5,000,000 with the loan, with interest rates for owner occupiers starting at 2.70% (2.72% comparison rate*) and 2.99% (3.01% comparison rate*) for investors.

Home buyers using the Select Basic Variable loan will also be able to borrow with a deposit as low as 5% (although this may require them to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance), and they’ll even be able to split their loan up to four times if they’re wanting to fix a portion of it.

While the loan doesn’t come with an offset account, that doesn’t mean Aussies won’t be able to save because they will have access to the free extra repayments facility. Speaking of which, borrowers who do end up making extra repayments and need to dip back into them (for whatever reason) will be able to do so thanks to the free redraw facility. Just bear in mind that there’s a minimum redraw amount of $100.

The last thing you’re probably itching to know about is fees. Well the good news there is that Aussie doesn’t charge any application, settlement or ongoing service fees with the Select Basic Variable loan. However, borrowers will need to budget for a $330 legal fee, as well as the $535 discharge fee which will need to be paid once the loan is paid off in full.

snapshot
Who is it good for

The Aussie Select Basic Variable home loan is a budget-friendly option for first time buyers and investors alike, with the competitive rates and low number of fees you’d expect of a basic loan combined with handy extra features like the extra repayments facility and split loan option.

snapshot
Any catches

While the lack of any ongoing service fees will help borrowers keep their costs down over the life of the loan, the legal and discharge fees may prove unwelcome budget hits.

    Requested Aussie Home Loan Brokerage service all to NO avail after having reached out to their Sales Support person on three occasions and was promised a follow up. The Launceston Office was of NO value and as a result have looked elsewhere with above and beyond expected results.
