Mozo snapshot

If you are looking for a basic home loan without any bells and whistles the BankSA Basic Home Loan could be a worthy contender. The loan comes with competitive variable rates starting from just 2.49% (2.51% comparison rate)* for owner occupiers, plus there are no ongoing service fees to worry about. With low deposit requirements it could even be a great choice for first time buyers, plus it was even named a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner in the First Home Buyer Loan category.

Key features

The BankSA Basic Home Loan has a number of variable rate options starting from 2.49% (2.51% comparison rate)* for owner occupiers and 2.79% (2.81% comparison rate)* for investors. Rates will depend on your loan size and the type of repayments you want to make (principal and interest or interest-only), and there are options to borrow up to 95% of the property's value (Lenders Mortgage Insurance may be required for loans with an loan-to-value ratio over 80% though). 

The loan comes with flexibility to make your repayments on a schedule that suits you, with weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment options available. You'll also be able to make extra repayments towards your loan, as well as redraws, for no extra cost. Should you need a break from work for legitimate reasons like maternity leave, there is a repayment pause feature where you can reduce or pause your repayments between 3 - 6 months. 

Aside from some competitive rates, the other benefit of the loan is the relative lack of fees. There are no upfront fees other than a $100 settlement fee on loan amounts over $150,000, and there are no ongoing monthly services fees at all.

Who is it good for

The Basic Home Loan could be a choice to consider for anyone who's looking for a low cost home loan, whether you're an  investor or you're buying your first home.

Any catches

As the name suggests, this isn't a loan which comes with anything other than the bear basics, which means there's no offset account available.
