Straight forward to deal with.

Firstmac don't really have high street branches so you can't have face to face discussions. Their rates are quite competitive and online facility excellent.

Overall rating   8 / 10

Need to think of people not numbers

Because I'm forced to pay a higher rate, as I'm a stay at home mum and supposedly at risk of default.

Terrible..stay away

Worst company I have ever dealt with. Customer service is non existent, staff are not there to help. Incompetent would be the best word to describe this business. Should have changed loans years ago, and would have saved plenty of grief.

* The Comparison Rate combines the lender's interest rate, fees and charges into a single rate to show the true cost of a home loan. The comparison rate displayed is for a secured loan with monthly principal and interest repayments for $150,000 over 25 years, and applies only to this example. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Full comparison rate schedules are available from lenders. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.

‡ Results from this calculation are estimates only as individual lenders apply different formulas. Actual repayments will depend on your individual circumstances and interest rate changes.
