457 Visa Home Loan

Published by Otto Dargan on June 24, 2014

More than 50,000 skilled workers have migrated to Australia in the past year but did you know that you can buy a home on your 457 visa?

On top of that, 457 visa holders can receive the same benefits as an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Unfortunately, not all lenders can help.

Barriers to 457 visa holders

Firstly, if the savings that you will use as a deposit are held overseas then some banks will decline your loan. Thankfully, not all of them think this way.

Secondly, different banks need different sized deposits. Most banks will only lend you 80% of the purchase price or will decline your loan because of your visa. Some of our lenders can approve up to 95% of the purchase price! That means you need a much smaller deposit to get into the market.

On top of all this, some lenders offer 457 visa holders the same incredible interest rates as Australian citizens! Wow!
