Bendigo Bank customers to benefit from instant home loan tic of approval
Homebuyers, like Tingting Shen understand the ease and convenience of an instant home loan. Australians can now access Bendigo Express, an instant home loan from Bendigo Bank powered by Tic:Toc, the world’s first fully digital home loan platform, which launched today.
Shen, 35 from Niddrie in Victoria said she used the instant home loan technology to purchase her home and found the ease, speed and convenience a compelling factor in her decision.
“I did the whole application within the time of my morning tea-break! I submitted my proof of identity and evidence of income all online. I particularly enjoyed the website that was able to securely link to my bank accounts to verify my bank transactional statements. Despite being an online service, the experience was personal and warm, there was no problem getting in contact with someone, the credit assessor and the manager were contactable via email and phone on the day,” said Tingting Shen.
Bendigo Express launches with a 3.89% variable interest rate for Principal and Interest loans for Owner Occupiers, and 4.44% for Principal and Interest Residential Investment loans. For more detail on pricing, please visit https://www.bendigobank.com.au/homeloans.
