Most tenders now require a deposit of at least 5% of the purchase price of the property. If you are able to save 20% of the value of the home you will Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI). This is unrealistic for most however, so at Finnacle we generally aim for around a 10% deposit.

This is the amount that you need to pay out of your savings. Banks like to see that you have been able to save over time as this shows that you are more likely to pay the mortgage off comfortably. Most lenders don’t allow you to borrow the full amount of the property.

LMI is insurance that the banks take up to protect themselves if you are borrowing more than 80% of the property’s value. The cost of the insurance is passed on to you and is based on the property value and the % of the property that you are borrowing (known as Loan to Value Ratio – LVR). The insurance protects the bank against any shortfall in the sale price compared to your purchase price if you are not able to make your repayments and they need to re-possess and sell the property to recoup the loan.

We generally recommend using the services of a Mortgage Broker to ‘shop around’ for the most suitable loan for you. Banks are only able to recommend their loans and products, whereas a Mortgage Broker can investigate many banks and lenders. There may be times where going directly to your bank is worthwhile, for example if you are a staff member and get discounts, and we would let you know if this is the case.
