Work out what repayments you may be able to afford by using a borrowing calculator. We use a range of criteria to decide how much you are eligible to borrow, but you also need to be comfortable that you can afford to pay the loan. We aim to help you achieve your goals without living above your means.
There are several factors that go into determining which home loan and interest rate is best for you. A variable interest rate will change along with the market. A fixed rate will lock in your repayments for a set period of time. There are benefits to both of these options, and we recommend that you obtain financial advice when contemplating this decision.

1. LVR: Loan to Value Ratio
LVR is the percentage of the property’s value, as assessed by the lender, that your loan equates to. For example, if the property you want to purchase is valued at $500,000, and you need to borrow $400,000 to pay for it, the loan is worth 80% of the property value, making your LVR 80%.
2. LMI: Lenders Mortgage Insurance
LMI is insurance that protects the bank or lender in case you can’t pay your residential mortgage. It’s usually paid by borrowers with an LVR higher than 80% – that is, borrowers with a deposit of less than 20%.
