Mozo Review   Bank of Queensland Economy Review

Last updated: 11 March 2019.

What's hot:
  • BOQ’s lowest variable rate home loan

  • Free extra repayments and redraw facility

  • Available for owner occupiers or investors

What's not:
  • Not available for refinancing if you’re an existing BOQ customer

Mozo snapshot:

Want the lowest variable rate home loan on offer from BOQ? Look no further than the Economy Home Loan. Interest rates start from 3.99% (4.15% comparison rate*) for owner occupier (P&I) loans and 4.42% (4.57% comparison rate*) for an investment loan (P&I). There is no minimum or maximum loan amount so it’s suitable for everyone from first home buyers to luxury property moguls but you will need to have a 20% deposit as the maximum LVR available with this loan is 80%.

Key features:

With the BOQ Economy home loan, you’ve got a choice between making principal and interest repayments or interest only. The interest rates vary depending on your choice, as well as whether you’re getting the loan for your own home or buying an investment property.

There are some fees to consider with this loan such as the $10 monthly service fee and the upfront $300 application fee and $150 settlement fee.

In terms of flexibility, the loan allows you to choose your repayment frequency, whether that’s weekly, fortnightly or monthly. There isn’t an offset account attached to this loan but you do have the option to make free extra repayments so that you can pay off your loan sooner and pay less interest. There is also a free redraw option but it does have a minimum $100 redraw.  

Who it's good for:

To be eligible for the Economy Home Loan you’ll need to be at least 18 years of age, earn a regular income and be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Also, you must have never been bankrupt.

Any catches?

If you are an existing BOQ customer, you can’t refinance to this loan from another BOQ home loan, but you are eligible for a brand new loan.

Just be aware that if you are planning on building, this loan is not available as a construction loan. See other BOQ home loans that do offer this features or head to our main mortgage section to compare all home loans in our database.
