I urge anyone considering using Resi, please find another as they charge fees without consulting you even though they say there would be no fees. When the matter is raised they are quite offensive and refuse to resolve the matter.
Spoke to a Broker Margaret on goldcoast , Provided Heaps of information , went away to find out home loan details of products , never heard from again, sent email asking for my original documents to be sent back ,no reply no docs ,cost me money to obtain new docs.
Being a single mum they gave me my dream, my home loan which others wouldn't do and I have been with them for forever now.
While Resi was great to get a loan through in the beginning, now that I am selling they are dragging out the release of the title, so much so that it may look like I might lose the sale. It has been 8 months of he said she said, between the conveyancer and Resi Home loans. Not good enough.
It is not a Bank but a Mortgage originator. Hasve great products with no ongoing fees, service is available either through Branch or Group Office and no need to go through the jargon from an overseas or Phone operator to obtain someone to liase with. You actually speak to people who complete,intiate and settle loan, with after sales service from same Office or head office if not available.
This home loan was once getting awarded for its great rate and flexible features. But somewhere along the line it got franchised out. The rate started getting worse and worse and we got bombarded with offers for all sorts of unrelated products and schemes.
Online access makes it easy. Phone staff are approachable and polite. Flexibility of early repayments and a low interest rate really suits my needs.
I have several loans with them and they have been great in quickly passing on reduced rates. When buying/selling a property, they are very helpful with organising the finance, and the local manager is just a phone call away.
They treat you like a person not a number and this makes me feel really special. It is also good to talk to a real person not an answering service!
Great home loan for first home buyers. Easy to understand terms and conditions, redraw facility and a really competitive interest rate. Easy to keep track of balance, repayments and transaction history through internet banking. Only had option of monthly repayments but as it allows for direct salary credits I am effectively paying fortnightly which will knock years off the loan in the end. Only downsides are no ability to have an offset account and exit fees.
Resi offers very competitive rates but is difficult to contact and is inconvenient in terms of branches. It has only one in Sydney in Ultimo. It also seems driven by the larger banks and not really a small, independent community bank as it proports to be.
