Expert Review

If you're looking for a fee free home loan with basic features, then the Bank of Melbourne Basic Home Loan is worth considering. As one of Bank of Melbourne's more basic home loan offerings, it features variable interest rates across the Owner Occupier and Investor categories. Bank of Melbourne also offers a home loan package with more comprehensive features, so it is prudent to consider what's most important to you before applying. Further details about the Bank of Melbourne Basic Home Loan benefits are outlined below.

Basic non-package loan for owner occupiers:
The key features under this relatively basic offering for owner occupier loans are focused on pricing. Specifically, pricing advertised includes a $0 monthly fee, and a relatively high variable rate starting from 6.29% p.a. (6.30% p.a. comparison rate) on Principal and Interest repayments. Please keep in mind that despite this being a relatively basic no-frills product offering by Bank of Melbourne, these rates should be able to be negotiated down, particularly for people borrowing a sizeable amount, or for those who hold a sizeable deposit or equity in a property already. This loan does require a minimum of either 5% deposit or 5% existing equity, and often anything above these amounts will help you negotiate a lower interest rate. There is the option to being able to make extra repayments and in the future, redraw funds if desired. In terms of repayments Interest Only repayments or Principal and Interest repayments are available.
Basic non-package loan for investors:
The key features under this relatively basic investor offering are focused on pricing. Specifically, the pricing advertised includes a $0 monthly fee, and a relatively high variable rate starting from 6.54% p.a. (6.55% p.a. comparison rate) on Principal and Interest repayments. Negotiation of these rates down should be possible, depending on your circumstances. Also, while you should speak with your accountant, many investors opt for an interest only loan, of which the rates are also outlined on this page. While these are relatively lower rates under Bank of Melbourne's more basic no-frills offering, these rates may still be able to be further negotiated down, particularly for investors who are borrowing a large amount, or if they who hold a sizeable deposit or equity in the property already. For investors, this loan does usually require a minimum of 10% deposit or 10% existing equity in the property, and often anything above these amounts will help you negotiate a lower interest rate. There is the option to being able to make extra repayments and in the future, redraw funds if desired. In terms of repayments Interest Only repayments or Principal and Interest repayments are offered.
Summary
Considering the basic features available with this product, this home loan will appeal to a range of people, either as a home owner or as an investor. It will also appeal to someone where the established Bank of Melbourne brand and service is important, or for those who prefer a traditional bank home loan, rather than borrowing through a smaller or less known lender.
