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 2.58% p.a. (2.60% p.a. comparison rate*) for owner occupiers borrowing more than $150,000, and 3.28% p.a. (3.30% p.a. comparison rate*) for investors. However, they're only available to borrowers with a loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of 80% or less. 

If your LVR is more than 80%, there are two tiers you may fall into with higher but still decent rates. If it's between 80-90%, rates start from 2.99% (3.01% comparison rate*). Borrowers taking on a loan of more than 90% of a property's value can access a 3.52% p.a. rate (3.54% p.a. comparison rate*).

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.

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

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.

Any catches

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.
