  • Free ATM withdrawals. You will be able to access funds from your account for free from ATMs across Australia with this loan.

      Hi Sandy,

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      As of this writing, ING doesn’t have a variable rate home loan option. You may refer to our list of the variable home loan rates instead. You can use our comparison table to help you find the lender that suits you. When you are ready, press the ‘Go to site’ button to apply.

      As a friendly reminder, carefully review the eligibility criteria of the loan before applying to increase your chances of approval. Read up on the terms and conditions and product disclosure statement and contact the bank should you need any clarifications about the policy.

      You may also reach out to a mortgage broker to see your options for home loans. They can give you a multitude of options according to your situation. In the meantime, to give you an estimate of your monthly repayments, you may use our home loan eligibility calculator.

      Hope this was helpful. Don’t hesitate to message us back if you have more questions.

    I’m still a little confused about the LVR, if we are buying a property priced at $280,000 and dont have quite the 10% deposit, can we use a $20,000 deposit and get LMI? or is that not enough?

      November 6, 2018

      Hello Renee,

      Thank you for your comment.

      LVR stands for loan to value ratio which is the percentage of the money you borrow for a home loan compared to the value of the property. It is used to assess your risk factor as a borrower. The lenders will calculate your LVR before deciding whether or to approve you for a home loan. The higher your LVR is, the more of a risk you may be to your lender.

      For example, if you wish to purchase a $280,000 property and your deposit is $20,000 (which is less than 10%), your LVR will be more than 90%. Home loans that are over 80% LVR are considered high risk. As a result, most lenders will charge extra fees, such as Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI), in order to protect themselves in case you default.

      You may want to check our guide on home loans with a 5% deposit. Before considering getting a loan with a 5% deposit calculate how much LMI will add to your costs. Compare the loan products and click the “Go to Site” button to apply. Please make sure that you’ve read the relevant T&Cs or PDS of the loan products before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      You’re also best to get in touch with a mortgage broker so you can discuss options based on your needs.

    What is the difference between Maximum LVR and Maximum Insured LVR for the product ING DIRECT Fixed Rate Home Loan.

      November 17, 2016

      Hi Serena,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      The maximum insured LVR is the amount that you can borrow including the cost of lenders’ mortgage insurance (LMI) into the loan while maximum LVR does not include the cost of LMI. LMI is usually charged by lenders when you borrow more than 80% of the property value.
