Eight no-frills home loans that could save you...

Do you just want a cheap home loan? Without any fancy features, options, add-ons or ‘package deals?’


If you aren’t interested in a packaged up deal including credit card, insurance, redraw, offset account or ‘personal face-to-face service’ then you could save thousands of dollars by choosing a cheap loan deal that is just that – a loan and nothing much else.


If you are prepared to take out a loan from a lender that doesn’t provide branches in every town and suburb, you will pay less. You may have to find a lender that is not a household name, that doesn’t have a brand name that is known by all Australians. That’s because all that branding and advertising costs money, which ultimately is paid for by customers. So if you are prepared to look around, compare deals and go with a smaller lender that spends little or no money on paid advertising, you can save big dollars.


And right now there are some amazing no-frills home loans available with the cheapest interest rates ever seen in Australia. Infochoice lists about 100 home loans with headline variable rates under 4.0 per cent. Most of these are just good, basic, straight forward home loans with no extras, no bells and whistles, just a super-low interest rate and super low fees.


Some of these so-called no-frills home loans are cheap loans that do also have features included like redraw and offset. So you might not have to give up all your features for a cheap loan.


You can check on the features offered by all home loans listed in the Infochoice database by clicking on the “Features” tab at the top left hand side of the Infochoice Home Loan comparison table.
