Mozo Review   ME Basic Home Loan Review

Last updated: 1 March 2019.

What's hot:
  • Low variable rate of 3.97% (3.99% comparison rate)*

  • Free extra repayments and redraw facility

  • Repayment holiday feature

  • No service or application fees

What's not:
  • No offset account

Mozo snapshot:

If you’ve been searching for a low-cost yet flexible home loan then ME’s Basic Home Loan could be the one for you. It has competitive variable rates starting from 3.97% (3.99% comparison rate)* and plenty of features like extra repayments and a redraw facility with minimal extra fees suitable for any home loan seeker. So whether it’s your first property or your 5th the many bonuses of this loan will satisfy your craving to find the best deal.

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 3.97% (3.99% comparison rate)* for owner occupiers and 4.57% (4.59% 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).

Who it's 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?

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.
