Reduce Rate Lovers Special Variable Home Loan

A low-rate variable home loan that doesn't skimp on features.

The Reduce Rate Lovers Special Variable Home Loan features a low variable rate usually associated with no-frills home loans. But this owner-occupier home loan comes with features often only found in products with higher interest rates.

A note on comparison rates

The comparison rate includes the cost of fees and the interest rate. Reduce is offering a 5-year loyalty discount on the interest rate to offset the added cost of fees over the life of a loan. This is why Reduce's comparison rate can be equal to or lower than the interest rate, depending on the loan term.
