Bankwest: “Life’s too short for BS (Bank Stuff)”

Bankwest like to think that when you bank with them there are perks – and they are not far off the mark. The last year we saw many lenders fall off the service-delivery perch, but Bankwest has remained committed to providing great products and service. Here’s a breakdown of what they are doing great in this often-turbulent lending market.

Perk #1

One Day Turnaround

The past year of COVID-related barriers to operate as normal coupled with a buoyant property market and low rates saw a vast majority of lenders fall catastrophically behind in their turnaround times with many still fighting to play catch up. Whilst Bankwest has not been totally immune to market pressures, they have now committed to a one-day turnaround time for application assessment.

Perk # 2

Low Rates

If saving money on your home loan is on your agenda, then Bankwest have you covered. Their two-year Fixed Rate Home Loan is something to smile about at 1.89%*. But if fixed is not your thing, then a 2.49%** Variable rate is very tidy. Or better yet, why not get the best of both worlds and have a split loan?

Perk#3

Construction Loans

If building a new home is on your horizon, Bankwest are one lender worthwhile considering. Lending up the 98% of the value of the property (inclusive of Lender’s Mortgage Insurance) makes them a great option, particularly if you are low on deposit funds. First Home Buyers take note.

Perk#4

Bankwest App

Banking on the go has never been easier. From the convenience of your digital wallet or the unique Bankwest Halo Ring, managing your money is a breeze. Not only that, but you can also message a customer service consultant instantly through the app, making sitting on hold for hours a thing of the past.

Perk#5

Paperless Loan Documents

One of the first lenders to roll out digital loan doc signing, gone are the days of waiting for a huge pack of documents in the post to sign. Delivered electronically, this is not only efficient but much kinder to the environment.

Perk#6

RAC Arena Discounts

Thanks to partnerships with both RAC Arena in Perth and Bankwest Stadium in Sydney, customers can also enjoy a 10% discount off food and beverages at events at these venues. (T&Cs apply)

Perk#7

Refinance Rebate

If you are still not totally sold on considering Bankwest, will $2,000 seal the deal? For eligible customers who move their lending over to them by September 2021, a rebate could be yours.
