|Start with as little as 5% deposit plus upfront costs to buy an existing home, and 8% deposit plus upfront costs to build. If you’re a first home buyer and buying land and building a home to live in, you could be eligible for a 2% deposit.
|Save on Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)
|Most lenders charge Lenders Mortgage Insurance. HomeStart does not charge LMI.
|Combine the HomeStart Home Loan with another loan to borrow more, without increasing your repayments.
|Buy or build
|Buy an existing home, build, refinance, or buy land now and build later. Available in metropolitan and some regional areas across South Australia. You can also choose not to make loan repayments for the first nine months or until construction is complete, whichever comes first. This means you don’t need to cover loan repayments as well as rent or other payments on your current home.
|Manageable home loan repayments
|Our Repayment Safeguard helps take the stress out of interest rate changes by making your repayments more predictable.
