Mozo Review   Kogan Money Essential Home Loan Review

Last updated: 17 October 2019.

What's hot:
  • Competitive variable rates from 3.02% p.a. (3.03% p.a. comparison rate*)

  • 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner

  • Optional offset account ($10 monthly fee applies)

  • Unlimited free extra repayments

What's not:
  • $150 application fee

Mozo snapshot:

Everything you could want and need in a home loan is neatly packaged in Kogan Money’s Essential Home Loan. With variable rates starting from a competitively low 3.02% p.a. (3.03% p.a. comparison rate*), unlimited extra repayments and no ongoing account keeping fees, it’s flexible features give borrowers plenty of room for choice.

And it doesn't stop there. The Essential Home Loan is also a winner - taking out a 2019 Mozo Experts Choice Award in the Investor Home Loan category. 

Key features:

When you find a home loan with rates and features as great as this, you know you’re looking in the right place. The Kogan Money’s Essential Home Loan has great variable interest rates, starting from 3.02% p.a. (3.03% p.a. comparison rate*) for owner-occupiers borrowing up to 80% of a property’s price.

Other rate tiers are available, depending on how much you’ve saved as a deposit and whether you’re buying the house to live in or as an investment.

There are no ongoing account keeping fees to worry about, but make sure you’ve budgeted for the $150 application fee.

If you’re after flexibility with how often you make repayments, you can choose a weekly, fortnightly or monthly schedule, plus the Essential Home loan also has your back with free extra repayments. And if you find you need to access the extra money you’ve already paid, there’s a free online redraw facility. Plus, the home loan has an optional 100% offset account, with a $10 monthly fee.   

While this is a variable loan, it does come with a split account feature, which means you’ll have the option of splitting your loan into a variable rate and a fixed rate.

Who it's good for:

Looking for a great rate and don’t mind giving up branch access to get it? The Kogan Essential Home Loan could be the perfect pick.

Any catches?


Although Kogan Money’s Essential Home Loan has no ongoing account keeping fees, keep in mind you will need $150 for the application fee.
