The UBank UHomeLoan has no bank account keeping fees whatsoever, which keeps the comparison rate a low 3.74%. If you have a home loan between $100,000 and $1 million with at least 20% equity you can switch to the UHomeLoan. You must apply for the home loan online, in fact the entire home loan is online - so get your digital skills ready. You'll get 24 hour Australian-based phone support if you need it and once you've applied you can keep track of your application with the online 'Application Tracker', so you know just where you are in the approval process.
Once you've been approved for the home loan, the flexibility on offer will not disappoint. There's a split account feature, which gives you the option of splitting your home loan up to 4 times, with a minimum split amount of $20,000. The UBank UHomeLoan also has a interest only payment option for an agreed period. While this may reduce your financial pressure, you won't be paying off the principal, so only do this for a short time.
Get paid weekly? Well, you'll be happy to hear that you have the option to choose between weekly, fortnightly and monthly repayments. When your finances are booming, you can make extra repayments through direct debit, salary crediting, BPAY and EFTPOS. But if you ever need to get that cash back, the home loan has a redraw facility over the phone.
Who it's good for:
The UBank UHomeLoan is made for anyone looking to switch to a low variable interest rate home loan, with the added benefit of extra repayments.
The redraw facility gives you the option of getting cash out when you need it.
The Value Offer discount is only available on new variable rate UHomeLoan applications, so if you already have a UHomeLoan you wont be eligible.
