    How does this calculator work?

    We have designed this calculator to take into account:

    • The purchase price of the property that you are looking to buy
    • Your financial situation in order to determine whether you qualify for a home loan without having to provide a deposit
    • Whether you currently own a property in Australia
    • Whether your parents own their own home
    • What your debt to income position is and if you have a clear credit history

    Based on this information, we can tell you which no deposit option best meets your needs. One particular no deposit option can see you avoiding a fee known as lenders mortgage insurance (LMI).

    This is a one off fee charged when borrowing more than 80% of the property value. LMI can amount to more than $6,000 for a 90% loan on a $530,000 property.

    This LMI waiver only applies to guarantor home loans so read this page to learn more including important information on when and how you can remove the guarantor.

    Why should I apply for a no deposit home loan?

    For most loans, you would need a deposit that covers 5% of the purchase price. That’s not including LMI, conveyancing fees, stamp duty and other government fees associated with a mortgage.

    With property prices on the rise, it’s harder than ever for first home buyers to take their first step into the property market.

    A no deposit home loan is a great opportunity to get into the property market sooner, rather than waiting to save for a deposit as you see prices go up.

    We’re a specialist mortgage broker that understands the lending policies of over 50 lenders so we can match you with the right loan for your needs.
