Key features

Westpac offers a low starting rate of 2.74% p.a. (2.98% p.a. comparison rate*) which is pretty great as far home loan rates go. 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 are no one-off fees borrowers should remember that there's an $8 loan account fee, which is charged monthly, and a $350 loan discharge fee.

Who is it good for
