Things to consider about the Aussie Select Standard Variable Home Loan
You can apply for this loan if you want to buy a residential property to live in or for investment purposes, and the maximum loan term is 30 years. This loan offers portability, which means you can transfer this loan to a different property, but doing this attracts a fee.
It should be noted that this loan is a full documentation loan, meaning the full range of income evidence is required. Aussie offers low doc loans for those who can’t adequately prove their income.
Features of the Aussie Select Standard Variable Home Loan
- Loan amount. The minimum you can borrow through this loan is $100,000and the maximum stands at $5,000,000. What you have to keep in mind is that the maximum any individual can borrow depends on aspects including your LVR and the size of your deposit to name a few.
- Maximum LVR. The maximum LVR allowed is 95%, although any amounts over 80% will require you to pay for Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI). As part of the LMI capitalisation option you can add the cost of the LMI onto the loan.
- Repayment flexibility. In addition to making principal and interest payments, you have the option to make interest-only repayments for the first five years. Your repayments can be fortnightly or monthly. When it comes to making regular repayments, you can set up direct salary crediting or direct debit, and this helps to ensure that you won't miss a payment. You can also make repayments via BPAY. This loan also allows unlimited extra payments without penalty, helping you to pay your loan off sooner.
- Redraw facility. If you wish to access money you've paid in the form of extra repayments, you can do so at any time through the redraw facility. You can make an unlimited number of redraws online or over the phone for free, but there’s a minimum amount of $100.
