Westpac Bank Home Loan Products Comparison

 

Home Loans Comparison Customer Ratings Five star rating

Don't look past eChoice for refinancing!

"From start to finish the customer service was 10/10. Fergus was with us every step of the way. Not only did we get a better interest rate on our new loan, but we had someone who understands our personal needs... The only issue we had was our former bank/loan being released. Apart from that there are no extra/hidden costs, and you get a great interest rate."

Great service!

"Very good service! My mortgage broker explained everything well and followed up quickly. I got a much better rate on my home loan and I would recommend eChoice for their services as a broker."

Highly recommended!

"The service provided by eChoice was timely and spot-on every time. The broker initially assigned had moved on and so I was assigned to a new broker. The transition was seamless!"

Re-financing

"Our re-financing had every hiccup you could possibly think of, but Robert did an amazing job, went above & beyond to keep everything going as smoothly & stress free as possible. We couldn't be happier. We would recommend Robert to anyone who was looking for a mortgage broker. Thanks for getting us over the line Robert."

Westpac Bank Home Loan FAQs

How long does it take to be approved?

On average, a formal approval can be around 4-6 weeks from application submission to property settlement. This is depending on lender and assumes that documentation provided is all in order.

Are there any exit fees if I choose to end my current loan?

There may be fees involved when you end your current loan and there may also be application fees on your new home loan. However, depending on the new loan, the savings from monthly repayments and interest may outweigh those fees. It’s best to compare and consult a mortgage broker on your financial situation.

What does a mortgage broker do and is it free?

A mortgage broker is an intermediary between you and lenders to help arrange a home loan for you. They will suggest loan products/options based on your unique financial situation and can help you with paperwork to get an approval. A broker’s service is free as they are generally paid by the lender once a loan is settled. This means no costs are passed onto you when using them or an online platform such as HomeLoansComparison.com.au.

How much deposit do I need?

Generally, a minimum deposit of 5% of the property is needed. However, there are exceptions with each lender, and it can also vary depending on your unique financial situation. It is worth shopping around with a broker or an online comparison platform (like HomeLoansComparison.com.au) to compare and find out which loan will work for you.

What is LMI and how does it work?

Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is an insurance that is paid by you (as the home loan owner) but designed to protect the lender in case you default on your home loan. Not everyone pays for LMI, and it usually depends on the amount of loan you are taking vs. your property value.
