Things to consider about the Discount Ultimate Home Loan
The Discount Ultimate Home Loan is a package home loan which offers discounts on rates and other products from Greater Building Society in exchange for an annual fee. This loan is a full documentation home loan, meaning if you can’t adequately prove your income - in the case of self-employed borrowers - you might want to consider a low doc home loan.
Features of the Discount Ultimate Home Loan
- Maximum loan terms. The Discount Ultimate Home Loan comes with a maximum loan term of 30 years, and allows borrowers to borrow up to 80% of the property value. It should be noted that if you borrow a minimum of $150,000, you can still borrow up to 95% of your property’s value, but you will not qualify for the higher 0.20% discount. You’ll also need to pay for Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI).
- 100% offset account. This loan comes with a 100% offset account. This is a linked transaction account which offsets the amount of interest due on your home loan. For example, if you had $30,000 in your offset account on a home loan of $150,000, your payable interest would only be for a loan amount of $270,000. This can see you save thousands in interest over the life of your home loan.
- Repayment options. You can make repayments every week, fortnight or month with this home loan.
- Free online redraws. You can make additional repayments on this home loan and then use the free online redraw facility to get access to these extra repayments if you need them.
- Package discounts. In addition to the interest rate discounts as part of this loan, you’ll also receive discounts on other Greater Building Society products. This includes a waived annual fee for the linked Greater Visa Credit Card and a fee free Ultimate Access transaction account. You’ll also receive discounts on the first year of premiums if you take out Building, Contents, Landlords or Motor Vehicle insurance taken out through Greater Building Society.
