About Homestar Finance home loans

As an online home loan provider, Homestar Finance offers a relatively thin range of home loans.

This means its home loans are most suited to more typical owner-occupiers, investors and refinancers rather than those seeking specialist loans such as SMSF loans or high-LVR loans.

Homestar Finance home loans are available with a range of interest rate options:

  • Variable rate
  • Fixed rate
  • Principal and interest
  • Interest-only
  • Split loans

Homestar Finance home loans have a maximum loan term of 30 years. Offset accounts and redraw facilities are available with selected mortgages from Homestar Finance.

Unlimited extra repayments are allowed on some of its home loan offerings, while others allow extra repayments with restrictions.

Homestar Finance home loan rates

Unlike many other banks and home loan lenders, Homestar Finance operates online only and doesn’t have any branches. Thanks to lower overheads, it can pass savings on to customers in the form of lower interest rates.

While Homestar Finance's home loan interest rates can often be relatively low, it's important to also consider the cost of upfront and ongoing fees before you apply for a mortgage.

Homestar Finance’s home loan interest rates differ depending on the type of borrower. Typically, owner-occupiers paying principal and interest are offered the lowest rates, followed by owner-occupiers paying interest only or investors paying principal and interest, then by investors paying interest only.

Homestar Finance home loans review

Homestar Finance offers relatively no-frills online-only home loans, which may be more suitable for tech-savvy owner-occupiers, investors or refinancers. Homestar doesn’t offer specialist mortgages such as low-doc mortgages, high-LVR mortgages or SMSF mortgages.

Because it doesn’t have to maintain costly branches and in-branch staff, Homestar Finance home loan rates tend to be lower than those of many other banks, though it’s important to also consider the cost of upfront and ongoing fees. 

Homestar Finance offers home loans with options for extra repayments, offset accounts and redraw facilities, which may appeal to those who want more control over their mortgage.

Homestar Finance home loans can be principal and interest or interest-only, while borrowers can also choose for their mortgages to be variable, fixed or split.

Who offers 40 year mortgages?

Home loans spanning 40 years are offered by select lenders, though the loan period is much longer than a standard 30-year home loan. You're more likely to find a maximum of 35 years, such as is the case with Teacher’s Mutual Bank

Currently, 40 year home loan lenders in Australia include AlphaBeta Money, BCU, G&C Mutual Bank, Pepper, and Sydney Mutual Bank.

Even though these lengthier loans 35 to 40 year loans do exist on the market, they are not overwhelmingly popular, as the extra interest you pay compared to a 30-year loan can be over $100,000 or more.

Does each product always have the same rating?

No, the rating you see depends on a number of factors and can change as you tell us more about your loan profile and preferences. The reasons you may see a different rating:

  • Lenders have made changes. Our ratings show the relative competitiveness of all the products listed at a given time. As the listing change, so do the ratings.
  • You have updated you profile. If you increase your loan amount, the impact of different rates and fees will change which loans are the lowest cost for you.
  • You adjust your preferences. The more you search for flexible loan features, the more importance we assign to the Flexibility Score. You can also adjust your Flexibility Weighting yourself, which will recalculate the ratings with preference given to more flexible loans.

Savings over

Select a number of years to see how much money you can save with different home loans over time.

e.g. To see how much you could save in two years by switching mortgages,  set the slider to 2.

How is the flexibility score calculated?

Points are awarded for different features. More important features get more points. The points are then added up and indexed into a score from 0 to 5.

What do mortgage brokers do?

Mortgage brokers are finance professionals who help borrowers organise home loans with lenders. As such, they act as middlemen between borrowers and lenders.

While bank staff recommend home loan products only from their own employer, brokers are independent, so they can recommend products from a range of institutions.

Brokers need to be accredited with a particular lender to be able to work with that lender. A typical broker will be accredited with anywhere from 10 to 30 lenders – the big four banks, as well as a range of smaller banks, credit unions and non-bank lenders.

As a general rule, brokers don’t charge consumers for their services; instead, they receive commissions from lenders whenever they place a borrower with that institution.

Why should you trust Real Time Ratings?

Real Time Ratings™ is a new idea and will change over time to match the frequently-evolving demands of the market. Some things won’t change though – it will always rate all relevent products in our database and will not be influenced by advertising.
