Sydney, September 2018:  Easy Street Financial Services, the online digital arm of Community First Credit Union, is shaking up the mortgage market and giving first home buyers a real chance to get started on the property ladder with a super-low variable home loan rate of 3.49%.

Unlike many lenders, which impose a higher rate for borrowers with a small deposit, Easy Street’s 3.49% variable rate is available to borrowers with a low deposit of just 5 percent.[1] This makes it an ideal home loan for first home buyers struggling to save a deposit due to paying rent.

Easy Street’s 3.49% variable home loan is a standalone product. Home buyers do not need to commit to a home loan package charging an annual fee. This allows Easy Street members to enjoy further savings, with package fees typically over $12,000 over a 30 year loan, plus compound interest.

Easy Street’s 3.49% variable rate home loan has zero annual fees, no monthly fees, and unusually, for such a low rate loan, it comes with money saving features including free redraw, a 100 percent offset account and no restrictions or penalties for making extra repayments.

Mr John Tancevski, CEO of Community First Credit Union, said, “We understand that in today’s market, it can be challenging for many first home buyers to save a large deposit. That challenge becomes even greater for first home buyers who are renting while trying to save for a home. By making our highly competitive 3.49% rate available on as little as a 5% deposit, we are giving Australia’s first home buyers a valuable opportunity to get into a place of their own.”

“Easy Street Financial Services 3.49% variable rate applies until 31 December 2018, and we urge first home buyers to take advantage of this offer while it is available. Current home owners wishing to refinance to our 3.49% variable rate can also take advantage of our FastRefi service, which can see their mortgage refinanced faster than ever before,” added Mr Tancevski.

Easy Street Financial Services’ home loans are not available through mortgage brokers.
