If you’re looking for a home loan with a low deposit requirement to get your foot on the property ladder sooner, then the MOVE Bank Standard Variable Rate Home Loan could be a worthy contender. Owner occupiers can borrow with a minimum 5% deposit and investors with a minimum 10% deposit, plus, there are no monthly service fees to worry about and plenty of flexible features to enjoy, including extra repayments, a redraw facility and an offset account.

Key features

When it comes to flexibility, the MOVE Bank Standard Variable Rate Home Loan has all of the bells and whistles. Both owner occupiers and investors can reduce their repayments with a 100% offset account, plus MOVE Bank allows extra repayments to be made towards the loan. There's even a redraw facility for any borrowers who want to  ‘dip’ back into any of those extra repayments they've made.

Plus, this home loan lets you choose between weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayments, and it comes with a repayment holiday feature. There’s also a split account option available if you want to split the loan between the Standard Variable and a MOVE Bank fixed home loan

What about the interest rates though? Well, here's how they break down based on different borrower types:

Owner occupiers 

Borrowers planning on living in their homes can borrow amounts between $50,000 and $3,000,000 with a variable rate of 3.50% (3.54% comparison rate*). While these aren’t the most competitive rates around, the advantage is that you won’t need to save up a 20% deposit before being eligible for the loan, because MOVE Bank allows owner occupiers to borrow with a loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of up to 95%. Just bear in mind that if your deposit is below 20% you may be required to take out lenders mortgage insurance (LMI). 

Investors 

For property investors, the Standard Variable Rate Home Loan also caters to loan amounts between $50,000 and $3,000,000, though variable rates are slightly higher at 4.09% (4.13% comparison rate*). Investors taking out this home loan can borrow with an LVR as high as 90%.

Any catches
