Expert review

This loan is a really good option for borrowers who have saved very large deposits because you need a 30% deposit to get it. Most borrowers in Australia don't have that much. That makes this loan well-suited to refinancers who have had their loans for a while. If you've built up 30% home equity, you can get this very low rate. A 100% offset account also makes this loan very useful if you need somewhere to put your savings and pay less interest.

    Hi there,

    We are in the process of buying our next home and need advice on the best home loans and the best use of the money we have in the bank, i.e., if we should put every dollar into the next house or leave some in the bank.

    Also, how much do you charge?

    Kind regards,
    Olga

    I want to check if the homestar rate 3.99 includes all the RBA increases until today or there are any pending increases they still need to pass on?

      Hi Vishal,

      Homestar advised that the interest rate does not include the RBA increase. The adjusted rates are expected to be released by next week.

      Kind regards,
      Rebecca

      Hi Glenn,

      You can submit a Homestar home loan enquiry online through their website: https://homestarfinance.com.au/star-gold/.

      Simply fill out the Home Loan Enquiry form then wait for one of their mortgage specialists to contact you via phone. The application process will usually be completed over the phone.

      You’ll be asked to provide information like your contact details, income, current credit obligations, available credit limits, etc. You can also contact Homestar at 1300 462 209 if you have specific questions.

      I hope this helps!

      Thanks,
      Sarah
