Most borrowers often ask, how much can I borrow? This question can be answered by looking how the Banks calculate your borrowing capacity.
Every bank has their own calculator to work out your borrowing capacity. Having said that, the information that gets entered into the different calculators is largely the same. The video in this article will discuss the criteria the banks use to calculate your borrowing capacity.

Genuine Savings are the funds you saved yourself over a period of time. If you are considering entering the property market, you will need to be prepared to have a deposit of at least 5% of the property value in order to qualify for a home loan. This rises to at least 10% of the property value if you’re looking for an investment loan.
Having said the above, having the 5% deposit does not automatically qualify you for a home loan. Home loan applicants are required to have genuine savings, as well as the initial deposit for the loan.Read More
Another month has gone by and the RBA’s official cash rate is still sitting at 1.50%, the lowest it has ever been. The prospect of the cash rate being cut, along with stronger economic data out of other world markets have led to the Australian Dollar trading at or near 3 year lows. This will have implications for Lender’s debt financing, with a large portion of that sourced in foreign currencies and thus needing to be hedged.
With this in mind some Lenders have signalled an increase to their home loan rates. This article will run you through the latest news on the home loan as at February 2019.Read More
The ACCC found that existing customers pay more for their home loans. Quite a bit more in fact.
As at June 30, 2018, existing customers were paying interest rates that on average were 32 basis points higher than new customers. This is equal to more than one typical Reserve Bank rate increase.
The ACCC found a borrower with an average sized mortgage could save around $850 a year by getting the same rate as a new customer. This figure is quoted on an Australia wide basis. For a typical Sydney mortgage, the savings could add up to tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.Read More
Did you know that AfterPay and ZipPay can affect your home loan application? Banks have now applied stricter requirements on lending. Customers applying for home loans are required to disclose what they owe on their AfterPay and ZipPay accounts. This is now part of most banks’ serviceability requirements.
In essence, AfterPay and ZipPay are digital credit platforms that give consumers a temporary line of credit.
With the above in mind, if you use these platforms, it is very important to make AfterPay and ZipPay repayments in a timely manner. Additionally, you need to to avoid any fees and charges for late payments. Late or missed payments can affect your home loan application process.Read More
