Mozo Review   Auswide Bank Home Loan Plus (Freedom Package) Review

Last updated: 11 July 2019.

What's hot:
  • Range of package benefits, including insurance discounts and fee waivers

  • Free redraw facility, offset account, and extra repayments

  • Owner occupiers can borrow up to 95% LVR

  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award

What's not:
  • $395 annual fee

Mozo snapshot:

Buying a home can be a trying time, that’s why 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner Auswide Bank has pulled out all the stops to make sure you have all the help you need. The Home Loan Plus with Freedom Package offers a range of benefits, such as insurance discounts and fee waivers, yet manages to retain a quality variable rate of 3.26% p.a. (3.66% p.a. comparison rate*).

Key features:

The Home Loan Plus with Freedom Package is filled to the brim with features designed to make your home loan journey simple and stress-free. The variable rate starts at a competitive 3.26% p.a. (3.66% p.a. comparison rate*) for owner occupiers taking out loans of up to $3,500,000 with a maximum LVR of 90%. There’s also an option to borrow up to 95% of the property’s value, but this means a steeper interest rate.

A 100% offset account is available, which should go a long way towards helping you save on interest. Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly, and if you opt to make extra repayments you won’t face any extra fees or penalties. The free redraw facility also means you’ll be able to get those funds back if you really need them. Plus if life throws you a curveball you’ll have the option to take a repayment holiday to ease the stress.

You’ll also enjoy an array of benefits as part of the package. Just let Auswide Bank know you’re a Freedom Package customer and you can receive:

- Savings on Home Building, Home Contents, and Car Insurance

- No fees for Mortgage Offset, Everyday Access, and Visa Debit Accounts

- No establishment fee for personal loans

- Complimentary financial health checks

And while all these features might sound appealing they don’t come free. You’ll have to budget for the $395 annual fee, plus the $350 discharge fee down the track.

Who it's good for:

This offering from Auswide Bank would suit anyone after a package deal with all the bells and whistles, minus the sky-high rates and fees.

Any catches?

Although the low rate option comes with an LVR of up to 90%, you’ll have to spring for Lenders Mortgage Insurance.
