Borrowing Power

Buying a first home, a new home, or even an investment property? Here’s the best place to start. The borrowing power calculator will give you an indication of what a lender may lend to you using the income, expenses and loan term you input.

Home Loan Repayment Calculator

As well as understanding how much you could borrow, knowing what your repayments will look like is an important part of the home buying process. The home loan repayment calculator provides an indication of what your repayments could look like using different interest rates, loan terms, and repayment frequency, helping you plan your budget.

Extra Repayment Calculator

Want to find out just how much you could save on interest with an extra repayment to your home loan? The extra repayment calculator lets you test various amounts to see just how much of an impact even the smallest extra payment could have on shortening your loan term and reducing your interest charges.

While the calculations are only an approximation (the amount of savings will vary depending on fees, charges and calculations used by the lender), knowing how much you could save may help motivate you to redirect any extra cash into your home loan.

Stamp Duty Calculator

Using your region, value of the property you’re buying, the property type and details of your income and home ownership status, the stamp duty calculator will determine how much you can expect to pay for stamp duty. It also works out any government grants you may be eligible for as a first home buyer.

Offset Account Calculator

This calculator demonstrates how much you could save in interest charges by using an offset account. An offset account is a transaction account linked to your home loan. Any cash in this account is used to 'offset' the loan balance that interest is calculated against, ultimately reducing the amount of interest you're charged.

Split Loan Calculator

Having a split loan – part of your loan fixed while the other is on a variable interest rate – has the potential to save you money. This is particularly relevant in times of interest rate rises where locking in part of your home loan against a fixed interest rate, means you have some assurance of how much your repayments will be.

Use the split loan calculator to work out what the impact will be if you split part of your mortgage. You can also adjust the fixed rate portion to calculate various levels of savings.
