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 Essential Home Loan has great variable interest rates, starting from 2.77% p.a. (2.79% p.a. comparison rate*) for owner-occupiers borrowing up to 80% of a property’s value.

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 when it comes to 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, available for $10 per month.   

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.
