Key features

First things first, the Bank of Sydney BOSBasic Home Loan offers a 2.84% variable interest rate (2.89% comparison rate*) for owner occupiers making principal and interest repayments.

Besides the rate, there's plenty more to love. Along with the option to make free extra repayments and use a free redraw facility ($2,000 minimum redraw applies), you won’t have to worry about account keeping fees or application fees. There’s also the option to take a repayment holiday and to split your loan between fixed and variable rates. However you won't have much flexibility in terms of varying your repayment frequency, as only monthly repayments are available with this loan.

Digital natives may be happy to learn that the account can be managed online, making your property journey that much more simple and convenient.

With this home loan, you can borrow up to 70% of the property’s value, so you'll need to save up at least a 30% deposit before applying. There are also a few upfront fees to factor in, including a $600 application fee and a $150 settlement fee. The good news though is that Bank of Sydney will cover up to $475 in legal fees and up to $420 in valuation fees.

Who is it good for

If you love all the bells and whistles that come with a home loan, the BOSBasic should definitely pique your interest as it gives borrowers access to a range of flexible features from a redraw facility to a split account.

Any catches

There are a few conditions for this one. To be able to apply, you’ll need to show you’ve been working at the same job for at least a year. Beyond that, the property itself will have to be an existing residential property situated in a metro postcode, and unfortunately the BOSBasic isn’t available for homes in NT, WA and TAS. Properties in Queensland will face some restrictions too.
