    • Suitable for: First home buyers and Refinancers

      If your total borrowings in eligible RAMS home loans is at least $150,000, you could benefit from discounted interest rates on your eligible variable rate loans  with the RAMS Value Advantage Package (VAP).  

      The amount of the discount varies depending on the total amount of your eligible RAMS home loans. The annual service fee is currently $375.

      For that one lump sum, many other fees are removed or significantly reduced, including: 

      • No monthly account servicing fees, saving you $240 annually on applicable eligible loans (no account servicing fees apply to RAMS Full Feature Home Loan).
      • Most variation fees (other than legal or costs incurred by RAMS) are waived as loan is under VAP – saving you another $295 per variation request.
      • Pay no application fees for any eligible loans taken as part of the package – saving potentially another $595 per loan.

    • Hypothetical scenario

      Virginia has a $200,000 RAMS Fixed Rate home loan. She wants to take out a new RAMS Full Feature home loan for $350,000 to buy an investment property. 

      The investment property is worth $500,000 so her LVR will be 70%. Since her total customer borrowings on eligible products will equal $550,000, Virginia is eligible for a RAMS Value Advantage Package.

      By paying just one annual service fee, she receives a discount of 1.00% p.a. off the RAMS Full Feature Home Loan interest rate on the new $350,000 loan. This saves her up to $3,500 in interest in the first year alone. 

      What’s more, there is no account servicing fee payable on her original Fixed Rate home loan under VAP, saving Virginia another $20 per month (or $240.p.a.). However, other fees and charges may apply.
