Mozo Review   Bank Australia Basic Home Loan Review

Last updated: 24 January 2020.

What's hot:
  • 2.95% special variable rate (2.99% comparison rate*)

  • Borrow up to 90% LVR

What's not:
  • No offset account available

Mozo snapshot:

Attention home loan seekers: If you are looking for a great value home loan, the Bank Australia Basic Home Loan is one to put on your hit list. Why? The Basic Home Loan has all the handy essentials you need to fulfil your home ownership dreams - no monthly fees, flexible repayments and a competitive variable rate of 2.95% (2.99% comparison rate*) as the cherry on top. 

Key features:

With a low variable interest rate of 3.25% (3.26% comparison rate*), the Basic Home Loan is a loan that will suit everyone from first home buyers through to seasoned property investors.

You can borrow up to 90% LVR, which means that for first home buyers and investors, the minimum deposit required is 10%, while the maximum loan term for the Basic Home Loan is 30 years.

There are a number of repayment options that come standard with the Basic Home Loan. For instance, you can choose your repayment frequency to suit your payday and not the banks. Options include weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayments.

There isn't an offset account attached to the Basic Home Loan but you can make extra payments and there is a redraw facility available if you decide you need the money later on. 

Who it's good for:

Value seekers. Why pay a higher interest rate when the Basic Home Loan has all the essential features you want in a home loan?

Any catches?

One thing to keep in mind, no offset account is available with this mortgage, which may not be optimal for every borrower.

    Fantastic customer service and very competitive.

    I love this bank. The customer service is outstanding. It is never a problem to contact them and get help when you need it. The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable of their product. The rates are fantastic and if you pay extra it means your loan is covered and gets paid off that little bit quicker. I would only say that there are pros to having this bank and would recommend it to all my family and friends.
