Home loans in Australia

According to Commonwealth and state laws and regulations, there is an established process of obtaining a home loan in Australia. Basic parts of the home loan process including fees, property valuations, and property inspections are conducted in advance to ensure that the seller and purchaser are aware of all aspects of the property and the system before making a financial commitment. These regulations and laws vary depending on the state in Australia in which you purchase a property. All aspects of the home loan process should be researched thoroughly before taking out a loan. 

What types of home loans are there in Australia?

The two most popular home loan categories in Australia are variable interest rate home loans and fixed interest rate home loans. As the name suggests, a fixed rate home loan has the same interest rate for all or a portion of the life of the loan. This rate is agreed upon before the home loan is signed off. Conversely, a variable rate home loan charges an interest rate that goes up or down depending on the official RBA cash rate, so it can be cheaper or more expensive than a fixed rate loan. Most home loan providers offer loans with both fixed and variable rates.     

How do these home loan rates in Australia compare to other countries?

There are substantially more fixed rate than variable rate home loans in the US compared to Australia, and the US also places greater importance on credit scores than some Australian lenders. Countries like India and China, are culturally distinct from Australia in terms of higher rates of regulation on home loans and heavy restrictions on overseas borrowers. 

How do you get a home loan in Australia?

The process of getting a home loan in Australia is similar whichever home loan provider you choose. The process does rely heavily on legal requirements and regulations compulsory for both borrower and the lender. The basic home loan approval process is fairly straightforward. After choosing your home loan and home loan provider, an initial application will be prepared. If your relevant details satisfy the lender, you will be provided with a conditional approval while the home loan provider conducts a credit check and property valuation. If everything comes out to be positive, you will receive approval for the loan. The funds can then be used to purchase your chosen property.
