Mozo snapshot

If you're 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 2.35% (2.39% comparison rate*) for borrowers with an LVR equal to or less than 60%.

Key features

With low variable interest rates and a range of flexible features, the Basic Home Loan is a loan that will suit everyone from first home buyers through to seasoned property investors. For owner occupiers with more than a 60% deposit or under a 70% LVR, variable rates start from a low 2.35% (2.39% comparison rate*), while if you have an LVR of more than 60%, but less than 80%, you could be still be looking at a decent rate of 2.50% (2.54% comparison rate*).

If you're an owner occupier, you'll be able to borrow up to 90% LVR, which means that for first home buyers, 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 bank's. Options include weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayments.

Unfortunately, there isn't an offset account attached to the Basic Home Loan, but you can make extra payments and take advantage of a redraw facility if you decide you need the money later on.

Any catches

With the Bank Australia Basic Home Loan, you'll also need to budget for a few fees, including a $595 application fee and a $250 discharge fee once you've finished paying off your loan.
