Key features

ME’s Basic Home Loan has a range of options for owner occupiers and investors alike, with both principal and interest and interest only options. The best variable rate starts from 3.17% (3.19% comparison rate)* for owner occupiers and 3.28% (3.30% comparison rate)* for investors.

This home loan allows you to make repayments at your own speed with the the flexibility to choose between weekly, fortnightly and even monthly repayments as well as the option to make extra repayments without extra costs. Additionally, if you do get in any temporary financial trouble while you’re paying off this loan and need to redraw funds, you can do it for free! Just bear in mind that the minimum withdrawal amount is $500.  

Another notable bonus of this loan is the ability to take a break, if you’re ahead on your repayments, with the repayment holiday feature. Holidays aren’t forever but they give you the time to regroup, refresh and get back on track.

Whilst ME’s Basic Home Loan has many great features, it doesn’t offer split rate or offset account features. Similarly, there are a few additional costs to keep your eye out for - such as the legal ($200), valuation ($200) and discharge fees ($350).

snapshot
Who is it good for

It’s a smart choice for anyone looking for a flexible home loan with a range of fabulous features like repayment redraw and holiday, minimal fees and low variable rates.

snapshot
Any catches

There is no offset account option with this loan which may not suit the needs of everyone. If an offset account feature is something you need from your home loan this Basic Home Loan may not be the best option for you.

    Avoid this bank

    I would not recommend Me Bank to anyone. I have a home investment loan with them which the term ends early next year and I will be refinancing with another provider. Their customer service is poor and the call centre staff are not well trained to deal with the situation particularly during the COVID pandemic.

    Absolutely disgraceful.

    They offer a redraw, then take it away. All without telling you. Suddenly my lifes savings I've accumulated over 20 yrs as a loyal customer - gone - they decided to take my redraw and transfer it to the loan, Just in case I experience financial hardship. Really! Well at least the loan's less, but hey the new car, holiday and renovation all a distant memory. Why trust such an institution - leave leave now as fast as you can!

    When money “disappears” and when you ask where it is, they say “it has been absorbed into the loan.” No evidence of it coming off the principal or put back into our savings account. Thieves!!

    Takes money from your redraw without notice, never get hold of them on the phone, terrible customer service and not at all competitive, leaving them ASAP.

    Took our money (and many others) from our re-draw without asking. During COVID 19 crisis! This must be illegal?? At the very least it is unethical. Pretty amazing considering my union recommended it. Doesn’t say much for my union I’m afraid (I think they now recommend an alternative bank). Communication appallingly bad.
