Review - What RateCity says

The Beyond Bank Basic Variable Loan could be a good option if you’re buying your first home since you would have the benefits of pre-approval, parent equity and $0 in upfront costs since the establishment fees are waived.

However, the moderate to moderately high variable interest rate could counterbalance these benefits. Additionally, the monthly fee adds an extra cost for having this loan so it’s a good idea to look into the features you need from your home loan and see if this is the best loan option to suit you.
