Mozo snapshot

Key features

There’s no other place to start than with the interest rate because the Star Classic Fixed Home Loan really does offer one of the lowest fixed rates around.

Owner-occupier borrowers with an LVR below 80% will be able to grab a 1-year fixed rate of just 1.98% (2.51% comparison rate*) on loans between $150,000 and $850,000. 

While that’s obviously an eye-catching rate, the revert rate (the one you’ll get after the fixed period ends) is still a super competitive 2.49% (2.49% comparison rate*) available with the Star Classic Variable Home Loan.

Homestar customers will be able to take advantage of a few handy features as well, including the ability to make free extra repayments towards the loan (capped at $20k p.a.) and to redraw those additional payments down the track with an online redraw facility.  

There are some fees borrowers will need to budget for though, including a $495 application fee and $535 discharge fee (but Homestar will waive this if the loan ends up going to full term). On the plus side, there's no ongoing service fee to worry about. 

Just bear in mind that this is a limited time offer, so if you’re interested, you’ll need to act fast! You'll need to apply by 30 September and have the loan settled by 31 December in order to qualify.
