Your house deposit
The deposit amount you’ll need mostly depends on the purchase price of the property – the higher the price the more deposit you need to save. Owner occupiers can borrow up to 95% of the property's confirmed value (subject to credit requirements), however, the more you can save for a house deposit the less it will cost you over the lifetime of the loan.
We understand that saving a deposit for your first home is a substantial undertaking. That’s why Suncorp Bank has created options like our Deposit KickStart and Low Deposit Options that are both options for owner occupiers. They're designed to help make it easier to secure your loan, and get you into your new home sooner.
Deposit KickStart lets owner occupiers use the equity in the home of a family member towards the purchase of your new owner-occupied home – to help kick start your dream. With Deposit Kickstart, you could borrow up to 110% of the purchase price while avoiding Lenders Mortgage Insurance.1
Low Deposit Option
Our low deposit option enables you to borrow up to 95% of the property’s confirmed value, and is available to owner occupiers.2
The First Home Owners Grant
If your state or territory offers a first home buyers grant and you’re eligible, this is a great way to boost your deposit. The First Home Owners Grant is a government scheme offering a one-off grant payable to eligible first home owners who are looking to be owner occupiers.
You can access information about the First Home Owners Grant by contacting the Revenue Office in your State or Territory, or by visiting www.firsthome.gov.au
We can make it easy for you by processing the grant application with your Suncorp Bank Home Loan. Ask us how.
