Great result - would recommend to others who are comfortable with phone / online banking
I applied for a home loan with Well because they offered the best rates and features for my needs. There is a learning curve associated with applying for a loan and going through the process online / over the phone, but John (the loan officer looking after my application) was very responsive and helpful. Overall I would recommend as the benefits of the lower rates outweigh the challenges of the 'remote' application.
The rate i received for my home loan is the lowest rate I've ever received, so yes I'm very happy with that. I though Glenn spoke very well and very professional is his interactions with me..
best home loans we have found to date
Generally I am quite hesitate to write reviews for a loan provider, particularly during the first few years of engagement ( which you may call it ' honeymoon' period). But I am happy to rate highly Well Home Loan though I did find the application form a bit time consuming to complete which is the only negative I can think of. I am so happy that I take the effort searching and find Well Home Loan, taking time to complete the online application ( be honest, I was at a point, thinking of giving up, but the client manager kept me engaged to the e...nd). This loan provider is quite different from others we have dealt with ( so far we have had 5 others). Each customer gets real time looked after by a designated client account manager. We can email, call our client manager ( John A.) direct to seek clarification and guidance whenever needed ( seriously whenever needed, including during oversea trips when we felt hesitate to log in and John responded and helped checking &update our fund movements). Their interest rates are one of the few best on the market, while their services do not comprise. With the recent RBA rate cuts, it's been a pleasant surprise to receive email updates from their CEO advising their would consulting their provider to see if we could benefit from the rate cut and then subsequent emails advising they would pass on the cuts. It seems that they are determined to be the customers' best choice, I am confident to say. Keep the good work !

Hi dear Well Home Loans team,
My wife and I intend to build our first home next year, with a holding deposit paid for a block of land that will title early in 2021. As we will not have a full 20% deposit, my family who own a home offered to serve as guarantors to help us avoid paying the LMI. Can we apply for a loan with a guarantor?
Thank you in advance for your response,
Well HQ.Well Home Loans
Hi Damir36, congrats on the first home! It's nice that your family is able to help you out as well in order to avoid the LMI costs. The type of loan you're looking for is a normally referred to as a family guarantee loan and unfortunately we don't provide those. To double up, we also don't have construction loan products available at the moment. We're not too sure who would be a good lender so we would highly recommend looking for the services of a mortgage broker who can help you to find a lender that offers a construction family guarantee loan. Best of luck and we hope you find someone that's a great fit for you.
Hi, my husband and I are seniors and wishing to buy into the housing market, he is 69 and I am 62 and we lost everything in the GFC so dont have any property. Is it possible to borrow if we are this age?
Well HQ.Well Home Loans
Thanks for reaching out! Sorry to hear about your troubles during the GFC, it was a pretty tough time for a lot of people. Regarding getting a home loan through Well and seeing if you're able to borrow at those stated ages, it will be best to chat with our home loan experts. With the responsible lending obligations imposed on lenders, this has become more of an issue with regards to lending near retirement age (regardless of whether someone wants to retire or not!). You can get in touch with the team on 1300 899 724 or send a message https://www.wellhomeloans.com.au/contact-us/
