Finder Home Loans Awards 2024

Our experts reviewed over 3,000 home loan products from across 200+ lenders to select our Finder Home Loans Awards winners for 2024.

The Finder Home Loans Awards 2024 celebrates the best home loan products across 14 different categories. Our experts analysed 12 months' worth of interest rate and fee data to find the best solutions for any borrower type. They looked at more than 3,000 home loans from more than 200 lenders – see who came out on top below.

Home Loan Provider of the Year

Provider of the Year - Home Loans

Easy Street

To determine the winner of Finder's Home Loan Provider of the Year award, we examine the home loans offered by lenders from across the market. That includes big and small banks, credit unions and online lenders. We examine the rates, fees and features of owner-occupier and investor loans to judge how competitive the loans are for each lender. And this year Easy Street won. All its loans offer competitive rates and low fees, putting it ahead of some lenders that won many individual home loan awards.
