Shop with confidence, knowing how much you can afford to spend on your new home!

The property market in Western Australia is finally starting to warm up. If you are out and about looking at homes you may be wondering how much can I borrow?

With both owner occupied and investment interest rates at all time lows, the answer may be more than you think. Some lenders will let you borrow as much as 95% of your home’s value, while others want to see a far larger deposit – in some cases up to 25%.

TIP: With each lender taking a unique approach, it is best to give us a call on 9309 4780 to get a good understanding of your borrowing capacity before you make an offer on a property.
