Expert review

If you want to switch to a variable rate loan and you want to switch fast, Nano Digital Home Loans is definitely worth checking out. If you match the lender's borrowing criteria then it shouldn't take long to get approved. The total lack of fees is another big benefit. The loan also lets you save money through the "offset sub-account" and spend it with a Visa debit card. It's not a genuine offset account, but it functions in a very similar way.

    I am a free-lance real estate agent and now working for Investment Property Consulting. I have a client who wants to buy an investment property. Here are his relevant information:

    1. A single-earner with no dependent except his wife who’s not working;
    2. He’s earning $65k a year; no personal loan with credit card with 6k limit;
    3. His owner-occupier is valued at more than 65k with existing mortgage of only $194k;
    4. He is willing to put deposit up to 30% coming from his equity

    He wants to know how much he can borrow. I can provide you with any relevant info/documents you may require and you can talk to our client after.

    May I hear from you soon.

    Thank you.

      Hi Alex,

      At Finder we don’t offer credit to borrowers, we provide information to readers. So you would be better off speaking to some lenders directly or talking to a mortgage broker.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Richard

    Hi
    I noted this comment by Well Home Loans on Product Review

    “Our 100% Bank-backed offset account attracts a $10 per month fee and you also get access to a Visa Debit card for using your offset. The offset account itself sits with a major bank so it’s protected as per the Financial Claims Scheme and not a sub-account like other non-bank providers. There’s also no change to our interest rates to include an offset account.”

    Nano Homeloans do not charge this offset fee. However what is the risk that Well is hinting at about non major bank backed providers like Nano?

    Q2
    what is their point about it theirs not being a sub account? if it still offsets 100% interest do we care? (separate to the above question on risk)

      Hi Trent,

      Nano is a digital lender specialising in home loans. Because Nano is not a bank, their ‘offset sub account’ also sits within the customer’s Nano home loan product. It does not have a separate stand-alone account number like traditional offset accounts do. Since the offset sub account is not a stand-alone account, the funds can only be used to offset the loan account. The funds are not deposit funds but they have built Vaults within the offset sub account, which means that you could have one vault with money to pay bills; another vault with your savings, etc.

      For a borrower, the account functions in the same way. You save money in it and it reduces your interest charges. But money in an offset sub account is not covered by the governmet’s Financial Claims Scheme, which protects deposits up to a limit of $250,000. This protects bank customers in the event the bank collapses. But this is very unlikely to happen.

      I hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Richard

      Hi Vivi,

      Yes, the PAYG income requirement of at least $100,000 a year applies to refinancers. You must also have a good credit rating to be eligible for this loan – you can check your credit score for free in the Finder app here: https://www.finder.com.au/app

    how many offset accounts can you have with this loan?

      Hi Kym,

      Nano is a relatively new digital lender and they provide a free offset account as a standard feature with all loans.

      We reached out to Nano to confirm how many offset accounts you can have. They confirmed:

      “We currently offer one 100% offset sub account for each loan completely free. To cater to customers looking for multiple places to section their funds, we have built Vaults within the offset sub account. Customers can create vaults to tuck money away towards a specific goal with the benefit of these funds all still offsetting the interest charged on your loan. Money can be transferred to and from vaults at any time. We currently allow customers to create up to 10 vaults.”

      Any funds in your offset sub accounts will still offset 100% of the interest charged on the loan. This means you could have a one vault with money to pay bills; another vault with savings; another vault where you stash money for a holiday, etc.

      This loan also comes with a Nano Visa debit card, which you can use for purchases and is linked to the offset account.

      Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Sarah
