Can I finance up to 100%?

Absolutely yes. If you are looking to finance the purchase of a boat, car, caravan, jet ski or any other piece of equipment, you can borrow 100% of the object's purchase price.

Unlike home loans, you don't need to have a deposit to meet lender policy. You just need to be able to prove that you can comfortably meet repayments.

Would I qualify for a loan?

Everyone's financial situation is different. Sometimes, certain individuals can find it harder than others to obtain a loan. This could be because they already have excessive amounts of debt and cannot prove they can comfortably meet repayments, they are currently unemployed, or they have a history of bad debts.

That said, if you have stable employment and income, a good credit history and can prove loan serviceability, obtaining a loan shouldn't be too difficult.

If you are thinking about taking out a loan to purchase a caravan, jet ski, boat or other piece of equipment, make sure you speak to your local mortgage broker. They can help you obtain loan pre-approval and source the sharpest rate for you from hundreds of loan products on the market.

For how many years can I have the loan?

This will vary according to lenders, but loan terms are typically between one and five years.

Can I finance a used vehicle?

Certainly yes. Your Mortgage Choice mortgage broker can source you the most suitable car loan for your needs and ensure you receive a competitive interest rate.

They will scour through multiple loan products to find you the right one for your needs – both now and in the future.
