Mozo Review   RAMS Essential Home Loan Review

Last updated: 9 December 2019.

What's hot:
  • 2.99% variable rate (3.05% comparison rate*)

  • Free extra repayments and redraw facility

  • Repayment holidays

What's not:
  • $595 application fee

  • $275 settlement fee

Mozo snapshot:

The RAMS Essentials Home Loan is great for anyone starting out or buying the home of their dreams. With a low 2.99% variable rate (3.05% comparison rate*), no ongoing fees and flexible repayment options you can be sure your repayments are going towards paying off your loan as quickly as possible.


Key features:

The RAMS Essentials Home Loan has a bunch of options for different types of borrowers. The loan is available for both owner occupiers and investors and allows each group to borrow either principal & interest or interest only.

As an owner occupier, you can borrow up to 95% of the property's value for principal & interest loans. For investors, you can borrow up to 90% of the property's value on a principal and interest or interest only loan.

Extra repayments are available for free and there's no minimum redraw amount if you find you need that cash back.

One of the more unique features of the loan is its lack of maximum loan amount; which makes the RAMS Essentials Home Loan ideal if you are looking at taking on a big mortgage with competitive rates. On the other hand there's also a notably low minimum interest rate of only $15,000.

The repayment options should suit most payday frequencies, with weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayment options available. 


In case you can't decide which side of the fence the grass is greener there is a split account option which means you can split your low rate loan between a variable and fixed rate.

Lastly, if you ahead on your payments and want to have a break, you'll be able to take a repayment holiday, which let's you miss a repayment.

Who it's good for:

The RAMS Essentials Home Loan is great for anyone looking for low cost of entry into the home loan market.


Any catches?

There are a couple of fees that might get you bleating; to kick off your loan you'll need to pay a $595 application fee. While the end of the will be coupled with a $285 settlement fee and standard $295 discharge fee.
