Mozo snapshot

Featuring competitive variable interest rates and a bunch of handy extras, including an offset account, the Offset Variable loan from Great Southern Bank is a home loan with a lot to like about it. There’s even a $3,000 cashback deal for refinancers (read on below for details)!

Key features

Let’s start off with the basic details. The Offset Variable loan is available to owner occupiers and investors who are looking to borrow anywhere between $100,000 and $5,000,000, plus there are both principal and interest and interest-only repayment options.

The variable rates on offer depend on a number of factors including the type of borrower you are, the type of repayments you’ll be making and the loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of your loan, but currently they began at a relatively competitive: 

  • 2.54% p.a. (2.59% p.a. comparison rate*) for owner occupiers making principal and interest repayments with an LVR below 80%

  • 2.94% p.a. (2.99% p.a. comparison rate*) for investors making principal and interest repayments with an LVR below 80%

Moving on to the loan features, Great Southern Bank gives their Offset Variable customers plenty of options, including access to (surprise, surprise) a 100% offset account, as well as the ability to make extra repayments and redraws for free. Borrowers will also have the choice between making their repayments on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly schedule. 

There are some additional costs (on top of the interest rate) that borrowers will want to take into consideration though. There’s the establishment fee ($600), the settlement fee ($235) and the discharge fee ($500). 

But wait, there’s one more feature worth mentioning, especially for refinancers. Existing mortgage holders who are willing to switch a loan of $250,000 or more (max. 80% LVR) over to Great Southern Bank will receive $3,000 cashback, plus they’ll have the usual $600 establishment fee waived! Eligible refinancers will need to apply before 31 October, 2021 and settle the loan before 31 January, 2022.

Who is it good for

Great Southern Bank’s Offset Variable home loan could be an option worth considering for any borrower after a loan that offers both a full offset account and competitive variable rates. Those looking to refinance who can take advantage of those features, plus the cashback offer and fee waiver, may be especially interested in the loan.

Any catches

As we mentioned above the loan does come with some relatively large one-off fees, so make sure you weigh those up against the benefits of the loan.
