86 400

A neobank has dived into home loans, offering customers what it describes as the first lot of “fully digital mortgage applications”, promising to be six times faster than the big four banks.

86 400, touted as the country’s newest smartbank, has been rolled out across Australia, enabling consumers to make a home loan application via an app.

86 400’s initial home loan offering, which is available for purchasers, refinancers, owner-occupiers and investors, is a fully featured loan, with fixed and variable rate options, both with redraw. 

The variable rate loan also has the ability to link to multiple offset accounts (both 86 400 Pay and Save accounts). Rates start from 2.88 per cent p.a.

86 400 captures income and expenses and pre-populate them onto the loan application, meaning the application can be filled out within half an hour to an hour.

The bank believes it can make decisions on mortgages within 24 hours, making them six times faster than a traditional major bank.

86 400’s home loan lead, Melissa Christy, said “applying for a home loan shouldn’t mean trying to make a miracle happen”. 

“We have made the process transparent, easy to understand and quick so consumers can focus on finding their dream home rather than drowning in paperwork and unknowns,” Ms Christy said.

While other fintechs, including Macquarie-backed Athena Home Loans, NAB’s Ubank, Gateway Bank, Juno Bank and Volt, have all dabbled in the digital market space this year, 86 400 said it was the first provider to offer the digital home loans through brokers.

With research suggesting that more than two-thirds of Australians experience challenges whilst trying to get a home loan, and more than half citing specific challenges to the process itself, 86 400 believes pre-filling relevant information will save customers hassles of trawling through statement for different accounts and providing paperwork. 

86 400 launched its neobank nine weeks ago, becoming the first of several challengers to open to the general public.
