If you ask people what they want in a home loan, a good interest rate is probably high on the list. Lenders may use a great interest rate to attract customers. This happens so often, that many people think the interest rate is the most important thing about the loan.
After all, a good interest rate means you’ll pay less interest. So what else is there to think about?
Great interest rates, with hidden strings
Unfortunately, really low interest rates usually have strings attached. The conditions and criteria that come with these great rates might not be clearly stated. This means people aren’t aware of the criteria attached to these home loan packages, until they apply. Then they may find that they are ineligible, or that the loan isn’t as great as they thought it was.
For example, one lender recently advertised a home loan package for first home buyers who have a small deposit, with a great interest rate. The promotion attracted a lot of interest. Some first home buyers who hadn’t been able to save a large deposit thought they’d found the perfect solution.
But, what the lender didn’t advertise as clearly, were the requirements and criteria for this great rate. What many people didn’t realise, was that the lender has strict rules about where a deposit needs to come from. Additionally, the lender requires that applicants show they have been saving the equivalent of their prospective repayments, every single week.
As you can imagine, many people would not meet these criteria. Some people advised they only discovered these requirements when they were declined for not meeting them! This left them with no home loan, and a mark against their credit file.
