binocular icon
What's hot

  • 2.68% p.a. variable rate (2.73% comparison rate*) for owner occupier loans
  • $0 ongoing fees
What's not
  • $20 redraw fee
Mozo snapshot

With a low 2.68% variable rate (2.73% comparison rate*) and no ongoing fees, the Bank Discount Special Rate Home Loan from Heritage Bank delivers great value for owner occupiers. The loan is available for LVRs up to 95% but to get the rate, you'll need to have at least a 20% deposit and borrow at least $150,000.

Key features

The Heritage Bank Discount Special Rate Loan comes with different rate tiers depending on your LVR. If you're borrowing less than 80% of the property's value, your rate will be a low 2.68% (2.73% comparison rate*), borrowing less than 90% of the value and you'll score a rate of 2.98% (3.03% comparison rate*) and finally, if you're borrowing 90%-95% of the property value, you're rate will be 2.98% (3.03% comparison rate*).

You don't have to stress about repayment timings, Heritage Bank gives you the option of choosing the repayment frequency that best suits you. Options include weekly, fortnight or monthly repayments. 

There's no offset account on offer but you can make extra repayments at anytime for free which will help you to reduce the time it takes to pay off your loan and save on interest. The loan also has unlimited redraws so if you need to you can access those funds later down the track. And with no ongoing fees, all of your repayments will go towards paying back your loan not expensive bank fees. 

snapshot
Who is it good for

People who want a loan with flexibility and great value, particularly those with a 20% or more deposit. Why pay more in interest than you absolutely need to?

snapshot
Any catches

While the loan is available for up to a 95% LVR, just be mindful that for loans over 80% loan-to-value-ratio, you'll get a steeper interest rate and be required to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance. This insurance isn't unique to Heritage Bank, it applies to all loans with LVRs more than 80%.

    Heritage has got everything a girl could want

    My broker set up my loan so I had almost nothing to do with the bank. Any of my subsequent queries and transactions have been very easy. Staff are very helpful and polite. The app on my smartphone makes electronic banking easy. As far as my home loan goes, banking is completely virtual. That's the way I prefer it. No people, no queues, priceless.
