Review - What RateCity says

The Suncorp Bank Personal Purpose Back to Basics Loan is a fairly simple loan with a moderate to moderately-high rate and a few add-on features.

Its low minimum deposit and no annual or monthly fees may suit first home buyers, while its flexible repayment options may appeal to both refinancers and investors. The flexibility is curbed however by the lack of offset account.

Before taking a loan, it is advisable to work out how much you can afford to borrow and whether the individual loan features match your desires.
