Key features

If you’re looking for funding to buy your first home with a deposit of 20% or more, chances are that the first thing on your home loan checklist is a low rate to keep your repayments down. This is where the MOVE Bank Straightforward Home Loan really delivers, with two competitive variable rates on offer depending on your loan size: 

  • 2.39% (2.43% comparison rate*) for loan amounts from $150,000 to $499,999 
  • 2.29% (2.33% comparison rate*) for loan amounts above $500,000 

The Straightforward Home Loan doesn’t just offer a low rate though, it also offers borrowers the opportunity to choose their repayment schedule (either fortnightly or monthly) and make extra repayments on their loan for free. And anyone that does manage to make extra repayments will be able to dip into them for free using MOVE Bank’s handy online redraw facility.

When it comes to fees, the MOVE Bank Straightforward Home Loan does come with a $450 application fee as well as a $150 discharge fee once you’ve paid out your mortgage in full. The good news is that MOVE doesn’t charge any ongoing service fee, so you won’t need to worry about allocating that in your budget.
