Mozo snapshot

If you're an owner occupier looking for a home loan with a major bank, it's hard to look past some of the features available with the Flexi First Option Home Loan from Westpac. First up there's the discounted 2.29% variable rate for the first 2 years which will save you 0.50% p.a. on the standard interest rate, plus there are no loan ongoing fees and a number of useful features. This home loan also picked up a 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Award for Best First Home Buyer Loan.

Key features

Westpac is running a discounted introductory offer which gives owner occupier borrowers a 0.50% discount off the normal variable rate. That means, depending on your deposit, you'll be able to snag a variable rate as low as: 

  • 2.19% for 24 months, then 2.69% (2.62% comparison rate*) afterwards for borrowers with a loan-to-value ratio (LVR) below 70%
  • 2.29% for 24 months, then 2.79% (2.72% comparison rate*) afterwards for borrowers with a loan-to-value ratio (LVR) between 70% and 95%

Just bear in mind that while you will be able to borrow up to 95% of the property value with the Westpac Flexi First Option Home Loan, borrowers with an LVR over 80% may be required to take out lenders mortgage insurance

As the name suggests, the Flexi First Option is also about giving borrowers a bit of extra flexibility. You'll be able to make repayments on a schedule which suits your pay cycle (with weekly, fortnightly and monthly options available), plus you can make extra repayments at any time and there's a redraw facility at hand should you need to dip into them.

And while there's no one-off service fee, or any ongoing fees to worry about, borrowers will want to remember that there's a $350 discharge fee on the loan.

Who is it good for

The Flexi First Option Home Loan could be a good match for owner occupier borrowers who are looking for a basic home loan from a major bank which has a number of flexible features available.

Any catches

Just remember that the introductory rate will revert after 2 years, so after that period it may be worth comparing your rate to make sure it stacks up agains tother variable home loan offers.
