Important Information and Comparison Rate Warning

Base criteria of: a $400,000 loan amount, variable, fixed, principal and interest (P&I) home loans with an LVR (loan-to-value) ratio of at least 80%. However, the ‘Compare Home Loans’ table allows for calculations to be made on variables as selected and input by the user. Some products will be marked as promoted, featured or sponsored and may appear prominently in the tables regardless of their attributes. All products will list the LVR with the product and rate which are clearly published on the product provider’s website. Monthly repayments, once the base criteria are altered by the user, will be based on the selected products’ advertised rates and determined by the loan amount, repayment type, loan term and LVR as input by the user/you. *The Comparison rate is based on a $150,000 loan over 25 years. Warning: this comparison rate is true only for this example and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate. Rates correct as of . View disclaimer.

CEO of Raiz Invest Australia Brendan Malone said Raiz Home Ownership is a natural evolution for the company. 

“Raiz customers typically open their accounts between 18-24 years of age, before they are in a position to purchase a home," Mr Malone said. 

"But once they are ready, they may take all their investments to put towards a deposit for a home and may or may not continue to invest through Raiz Invest and instead put more towards their mortgage in offset.

“Raiz Home Ownership allows our customers to continue to invest in Raiz, either by round-ups or through the upfront reward and the $12.50 payment each month.

"This keeps them connected with the community and lets them continue to learn more about investing, markets and general financial literacy."

Raiz Home Ownership can be used by Raiz customers who are saving for a mortgage or who have already saved a deposit, as well as for those looking to refinance. 

“Around 66% of the people we have engaged have been First Home Buyers and we are focusing our education on this group,” Mr Malone said.

“Our incentives being offered we believe are competitive and keep customers within the Raiz ecosystem.”

Since Raiz Home Ownership was launched earlier this month, 46% of leads progressed have been for first home buyers and 54% for refinancing.

Mr Malone said the service walks customers through the application process and beyond.

“The Raiz Home specialist team will call the customer at least once a year to check in and assess their situation, which is not typical for lenders at this end of the market," he said.

“We are taking the pressure away by guiding customers through the lending process. Our team will negotiate with the lender and will provide options to ensure a smooth experience to get people into a new home or refinance an existing loan."
