Key features

The Zip Home Loan from loans.com.au is aimed at owner occupier borrowers looking to borrow between $250,000 to $2,000,000. 

It comes with a variable rate of 2.73% (2.75% comparison rate*), though something to keep in mind is that the maximum loan-to-value ratio (LVR) is 80%, which means that you’ll need at least a 20% deposit to access the loan. Although, this may be for the best in some cases, as a 20% deposit mean you won't need to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI).

Customers keen to pay off their loans faster will be able to make unlimited extra repayments for free, and they can make unlimited free redraws (no minimum amount required) using the online redraw facility. 

This is more than just your regular home loan though. That's because loans.com.au have introduced a Visa Debit Card option called the Zip Card with the loan which provides borrowers with a $5,000 credit facility with no fees and no interest rate attached. Although if you choose to use this option, just keep in mind that you will need to make a $100 minimum repayment each month.

Who is it good for

Given the competitive variable interest rate, flexible features and Zip Debit Card which all come attached to the loan, the Zip Home Loan could be an option worth considering for owner occupier borrowers with an LVR below 80%.

Any catches

While the loan is general is pretty scant on fees, there are a few one-off upfront costs to consider, including the $220 valuation fee and $300 settlement fee. A discharge fee may also be applicable to borrowers who don't bring the loan to full term.
