These loans are added to a HomeStart, Graduate or Low Deposit loan to boost your borrowing power. With most of these secondary loans, there’s no need to make any repayments until your primary HomeStart loan has been fully paid. They also have a lower interest rate comparable to CPI. Being able to borrow more gives you more options when house hunting to choose a better location or bigger home to better suit your family.
An Advantage Loan of up to $45,000 is available if your household earns less than $60,000 per annum after tax. It also offers a lower interest rate.
Through shared appreciation, you could borrow up to 30% more. In addition to another HomeStart loan, you could also use Breakthrough to refinance your existing home loan so you can reduce your current repayments.
If you are on a limited income, the Wyatt Loan provides up to $10,000 towards the deposit, fees and charges, and offers an interest and repayment free period of 5 years.
If you are a current public or community housing tenant, the EquityStart Loan can increase your loan amount by up to $50,000 without adding to your repayments. It also offers a lower interest rate.
