Australia’s neobank 86,400 has announced that it will offer tiered variable rates for mortgage customers, giving those with lower LVR (loan-to-value) the opportunity to access cheaper rates.
The new pricing system means borrowers with a deposit of at least 40% of the value of an asset can pay as little as 2.59% per annum (comparison rate of 2.87% per annum *). According to Melissa Christy, loan product manager at 86,400, this will go a long way in freeing up clients’ finances.
âWe built 86,400 to help Australians take control of their money. By lowering variable loan rates for clients with more equity in their property, we are helping our clients do more with their money, âshe said.
The new rates went into effect on August 20, 2020 and will be available to all customers, including existing customers. The corresponding levels and rates for homeowners making principal and interest repayments are listed below:
â¢ LVR â¤ 80%: 2.74% per year (comparison rate of 3.02% per year *)
â¢ LVR â¤ 70%: 2.64% pa (comparison rate of 2.92% pa *)
â¢ LVR â¤ 60%: 2.59% per year (comparison rate of 2.87% per year *)
Investors will also be able to take advantage of the new pricing system, with rates as low as 2.89% pa (3.17% pa comparison rate *) available. Below are the price ranges for investors making principal and interest repayments:
â¢ LVR â¤ 80%: 3.09% per year (comparison rate of 3.36% per year *)
â¢ LVR â¤ 70%: 2.99% per year (comparison rate of 3.27% per year *)
â¢ LVR â¤ 60%: 2.89% per year (comparison rate of 3.17% per year *)
While LVR rate discounts are nothing new, they have become more popular in recent months as lenders seek to weed out low-risk refinancers from competitors. A lower LVR means borrowers are less likely to enter negative territory and be forced to sell during a downturn.
86,400 also offers $ 2,000 in cash back on the settlement to eligible borrowers. Offer is available for claims of $ 250,000 or more, provided they are received by August 31, 2020 and paid by October 31, 2020.
