What Home Loan Types Does Loan Ave Offer?

The specialty of Loan Ave is customised home loan solutions, as it understands the unique needs of different borrowers. It has a wide range of home loan services to offer.

Bridging finance

This financing option allows homeowners to buy a new house before selling their current one. Loan Ave makes it possible for borrowers to waive repayments on the new home loan for the bridging period while selling their existing home. Up to 95%* of the value of the new home (plus any associated fees and charges) can be borrowed.

Alt-doc loans

The main idea of Alt-doc loans is that they require less paperwork and fewer financials, making them ideal for self-employed borrowers. These low-doc loans give borrowers access to features like flexible repayment options, redraw facilities and 100% mortgage offset on standard variable-rate loans and few fixed-rate products. Up to 80% of the value of the secured property (subject to the type and location) can be borrowed.

Specialist loans

At Loan Ave, specialist loans may exceed 80 per cent of the security’s value and the interest rate is based on the severity of the credit history. Specialist loans work best for applicants with a poor credit history or for those with an unstable employment history.

Construction loans

Loan Ave sources wholesale funding and offers construction solutions for the widest range of customer requirements. Whatever your construction loan needs are, chances are Loan Ave provides the solution for you – including for self-employed borrowers.
