What is a low deposit home loan?

A low deposit home loan is a finance option that is designed to help buyers with minimal savings get into their own home sooner.

Whilst most lenders require a large deposit for finance approval (often a minimum of 20% to avoid Lenders Mortgage Insurance), low deposit home loans aim to lower entry costs by allowing buyers to qualify for a loan with a deposit as low as 2-5%. That means, you could start building with us with only a $3K* deposit!

For many Australians, this could mean getting into a home years sooner. Instead of saving tens of thousands of dollars while paying rent and other living expenses, you could get into the property market right now.

To qualify for a low deposit home loan, you won’t even need genuine savings. With many low deposit lenders, you can use a cash windfall (like a gift from your parents or lottery winnings) to get into your own home sooner. If you’re a first home buyer, you can even use the First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) as a deposit! Why wait when you could start to build equity in your own home right now?
