3. How Much Time & Interest Can I Save By Making Extra Repayments?

4. How Do I Achieve My Savings Target?
Find out how much you need to save on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis to achieve your savings target.
Before developing your savings plan, work out exactly how much you really need to save on your home loan deposit. This is especially important if you want to avoid mortgage insurance (LMI).

5. What Is My Loan to Value Ratio (LVR)?
Your Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) is the proportion of money you intend to borrow compared to the value of the property. Here's why you should care about your LVR.
