You get what you pay for

Got the best rate going around. Got the worst refinance application process ever: No online progress
Lack of responding to enquires
Not making progress on committed time line
Having 2 finance managers calling me on the same updates and giving me different details.
Took so long on their side from an application in June that settled in October, I had to submit *the latest * bank and payslip info 3 times. All updates coming through in a couple of days from my side.
Was painful. Wife wanted to walk away. Ultimately I pushed through
Hoping its smoother sailing from here.

Great rates and more personal service

published

We first found Reduce Loans while researching online for lower interest rates for our home loan. They seemed too good to be true so read up on some reviews and discovered they were legitimate. The application process was all done electronically which is great because we live in regional Australia. The whole process took longer than expected but it was good to be able to contact by phone or email and speak to the same couple people throughout. It is all sorted now and saving money so it's all good.

Great work from Reduce Home Loans

published

I had a very good experience using Reduce to refinance my home loan. As a contractor who had recently started a new contract my situation was not ideal to be seeking a new loan - however with Reduce Home Loans help I was able to secure what was likely to be the lowest interest rate product available in Australia at the time. I would have given them 5* but at the end there was a time when the communication around settlement could have been a bit better.

Great low interest rate, with no on-going fees.

published

Fast pre-approval, actual time to settlement took a little longer than expected, but note this was a refinance. Very competitive, low rate for interest only investment property loan. Would recommend for anyone serious about reducing interest costs.

Very happy with variable rate with offset

published

Overall, we are very happy! One of, if not the best rate in Australia. Around 0.5% better rate than the big four will offer existing customers and around 0.25% better than other banks, for new customers.

The process was quite drawn out with a lot of forms to fill out and emails back and forth over two months. Not quite as streamlined as a big banks but the savings are worth it. I would recommend Reduce Home Loans if you really are about maximising your savings.

Reduce Home Loans - Good experience, easy to deal with and best interest rate available. Good service from Bryce Stimpson.
Offered different interest rate and loan type options, and discussed with us which would suit best, the forms were not too hard to fill out, instructions were clear and the final setup and settlement went well.

So much better than dealing with a big bank!

published

Customer service was great and our broker was very responsive. Overall turnaround time for approval was a bit slow, however we were advised from the outset that they were dealing with a large number of applications following RBA rate cuts in June and July. It would also be more convenient to have the application process online rather than paper based. At the end of the day we got a great rate and a great product that suits our needs and our broker was easy to deal with - and it's nice being able to maintain contact with just one person rather than a massive call centre.

A great rate and excellent customer service

published

The best variable rate around and excellent customer service to guide you through the application process. The broker could have provided more regular updates on our application status, but apart from that I can't fault Reduce Home Loans.

Thanks Reduce Loans

published

We had a very helpful staff member (Reese) during the loan application process. He answered all our questions and was easy to get in touch with. He helped us our with application and doubled checked all our documents were correct before we submitted the final application. The pre-settlement team communicated with our settlement agent regarding any issues and the post-settlement team (Cat) were great at explaining each step to commence mortgage payments. Thanks.

Best Rate Going, friendly people. Recently settled and have no hesitation recommending.

published

Customer Service was excellent thanks Leon, I didn't experience any unexpected costs. I'm happy with the rate. The online portal is pretty bare bones though I think it's all I need.

You really cant go wrong with Reduce

published

The customer service team are excellent at communication verbally and never had to wait on hold. One star is lost due to the limited information sent from the organisation about the loan progression. Otherwise excellent products and a very happy customer.

Fantastic....

published

Whole process of Re-financing - from first phone call to approval took about 7 weeks - but I was told this would be the case. The service was very good - with all my questions answered. Most emails were answered the same day - but once they got super busy after a recent rate cut, response time slowed a little - BUT WAS STILL FASTER than my old lending institution. Overall, I am VERY happy with both service AND product. They listened to my specific situation & suggested a product best suited...and most likely to be accepted - and I am now super happy the product is in place - and all went as they said it would.

Over all very happy with Reduce. Great service and relatively easy change over procedure. The internet banking interface could do with some modifications though. Also an app would be great too.

Questions & Answers

Aussiebloke34asked

Why are the fees so huge and why are so many members accusing you of bait and switch, where months after they have their loans established they get a letter advising their interest rates are going up?

Alex Dasked

Some of the comments are quite serious and places doubts on whether Reduce can then be trusted or not if they sign you up on one rate, only to increase it in a few months. Has many people experienced it?

Also people are saying their exit fees are very high. How high are they compared to others?

Thanks.

Hi Alex, I’m on 3 years fixed rate. I’m not sure how much are the exit fees but I don’t think it’s higher than my precious bank.

Simmoasked

I am considering refinancing soon with reduce and I was wondering if there rates go up soon after changing over. I was convinced a few years ago by a broker to refinance with AFG and 2 days after my loan changed over the rate went up quite a bit and I would have been better off staying with Peoples choice. I don't want to waste my time changing if this will happen again.

I am an existing customer my rate was 2.42% it will soon reduce to 2.27%. I have not experienced any issues with rates, although I have noticed they are now advertising at 1.77% so do not reward loyalty. The process to refinance is beyond slow, frustrating and you need to jump through hoops expect it to be even months before it is finalised. So you need to weight that up.

I am also an existing customer at current rate of 3.94% IO Investor loan when current advertised is 3.19% for the same product. Contacted my manager who said that no improvements to rate are possible. I'm now looking at refinance for 2 loan products elsewhere closer to the advertised Reduce interest rate. No reward once you are signed up.

They don’t reward loyalty. It’s disgusting they advertise new loans 0.5% lower than loyal customers. Also the discharge fees are excessive!
