Yellow Brick Road Rate Smasher

Features

One of the most attractive features of the Rate Smasher home loan is the very low variable interest rate offered.

Another great feature is that customers can enjoy being charged $0 in ongoing fees throughout the duration of their loan.

However, there is only the option to make principal and interest repayments via direct debit or salary credit and there is no 100 per cent offset account offered with this home loan.

Customers also do not have access to an ATM cash card. Although, you do have the ability to make an unlimited number of additional repayments on this loan, and you can also redraw these extra payments through the redraw facility for free online.

You can go into a Yellow Brick Road branch to use the redraw facility, but you will be charged a fee for any manual redraws. The Rate Smasher home loan is available for borrowing of between $100,000 and $750,000 loans, at the time of writing.

In order to be eligible for the Rate Smasher home loan, you can only borrow up to 70 per cent of a property’s value. In other words, borrowers will be required to have a minimum deposit or equity of 30 per cent of the property price.

This home loan is offered only to owner-occupiers who are refinancing or purchasing a property, including first home buyers.
