Working out how much you can borrow

Want to find out how much you might be able to borrow for a home loan? Our borrowing power calculator gives you an initial estimate of what a lender may be willing to lend to you.

This is a handy step to take before you contact your mortgage broker so that you can see the effect different interest rates and loan periods will have on the amount of money you can borrow, the total interest you pay and your estimated monthly loan payments.

By entering the length of the mortgage, your salary (plus additional salary if you’re looking to co-purchase), your expenses and the number of any dependants you may have, the calculator will assess your borrowing power based on your earnings and other financial commitments.

Make sure you enter realistic figures to get a more accurate picture of what you can comfortably afford to borrow. You’ll want to ensure that you don’t end up overstretched or struggling to meet your repayments. To work out different rates of repayments, pair this calculator with our home loan repayment calculator.
