The best mortgage deals aren’t necessarily with the big banks.

For many first time home buyers or refinancers, it quickly becomes apparent that the big name banks they have been banking with for years aren’t offering the best mortgage deals.

In fact, if you use a mortgage comparison calculator like RateCity’s to compare repayments between the average big bank mortgage and a mortgage from a customer-owned lender, like Hunter United, you may be shocked to find out how much better off you could be if you switched to Hunter United.

In fact, Hunter United has one of the most competitive home loans available in the market today, for home loans greater than $300,000, with the Platinum Home Loan. We are able to keep our rates low because we are customer-owned. This allows us to focus our attention on keeping our customers happy rather than generating dividends for shareholders.

Customer-owned lenders also tend to have lower overheads. Hunter United operate fewer branches than the big banks which enables us to transfer operational savings directly on to customers.

Another advantage of having a home loan with a customer-owned lender like Hunter United is our superior customer service. According to a survey conducted in May 2015 by Roy Morgan Research, around 93 per cent of customers of mutual banks and credit unions were satisfied with the customer service they received compared to 81.5 per cent of those with Big 4 banks.

Customer-owned lenders offer a diverse range of low-rate loans, coupled with personalised customer service. So why not give us a try? You’ll love the difference because our focus is You.
