Key features

The Citi Basic Variable Home Loan is flexible and can be tailored to suit you. There are options for owner occupiers and investors alike, whether you want to make principal and interest or interest-only repayments. Interest rates start at 2.29% (2.34% comparison rate*) for owner occupiers making principal and interest repayments, and 2.59% (2.64% comparison rate*) for investors. Plus, customers can borrow from $350,000 all the way up to $4,000,000. 

What about features? Well, you can make free extra repayments and use a redraw facility if you wish to dip those extra repayments later on. And that’s not all, because you'll also have the freedom to choose between making your repayments on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. 

While there is no monthly or yearly service fee attached to the Citi Basic Variable Home Loan, keep in mind that you will be charged a $399 application fee and $250 settlement fee upfront, and a $350 fee to discharge the loan.
