Home loans in SA 

More than any other state in Australia, the majority of the South Australia population resides in the capital, Adelaide. The capital therefore experiences a high demand for property from people currently living in the state or intending to move to the area from other states. The South Australia economy fluctuates with the national and international economy and some local factors. The state government offers a variety of incentives to encourage people to build properties as well as tempting first home buyers into the property market.   

What do I need to know about the South Australia property market and economy?

Due to the availability of jobs, established industry, cultural and entertainment elements in South Australia’s capital, there is always a demand for property in this city. The state economy is dominated by agricultural, manufacturing and mining industries and can be affected by the volatility of these industries. The state’s rental market is usually strong with low vacancy rates. 

Why should I get a home loan in South Australia?

Basically for affordability, because prices for properties in and around the Adelaide area are often lower than those in comparable capital cities. In addition, due to demand these properties are usually easier to resell or rent. The South Australian government has also recently reduced the amount charged for stamp duty (see below) making it cheaper than ever before to own property in South Australia.

Are there any disadvantages to getting a home loan in South Australia?

The South Australia government has similar laws and regulations regarding home loans as other states in Australia. However, the economy can be heavily influenced by national and international impacts on the mining and agricultural industries and that may affect property prices and housing availability. Also, the state is subject to extreme weather and natural events, including fire, high temperatures and monsoon type rain events, and flooding. The risks vary with location so do your research before purchase.

What fees and charges will I have to pay?

Like all Australian states, if purchasing a property in South Australia in most cases you will have to pay a Stamp Duty on Transfer of Real Property and an annual Land Tax. The Stamp Duty can be a substantial amount and you should budget for it before applying for a home loan. It is calculated based on the value of the property and can often be in the tens of thousands of dollars. An Emergency Services Levy is also charged by the state government annually for each fixed property owned. You will also have to look into the ongoing rates and levies charged by the council region your property is located in.

Are there any grants or discounts I can apply for?

The South Australian government offers discounts and exemptions for people in special circumstances. These include if the property is transferred between married couples or domestic partners or if it is part of a deceased’s estate. The government also provides a First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) of between $5,000 and $20,000 for first home buyers who are purchasing or building a new property. There are many conditions attached to these grants and they are subject to change.  

FAQs

Bad credit home loans can be dangerous if the borrower signs up for a loan they’ll struggle to repay. This might occur if the borrower takes out a mortgage at the limit of their financial capacity, especially if they have some combination of a low income, an insecure job and poor savings habits.

Bad credit home loans can also be dangerous if the borrower buys a home in a stagnant or falling market – because if the home has to be sold, they might be left with ‘negative equity’ (where the home is worth less than the mortgage).

That said, bad credit home loans can work out well if the borrower is able to repay the mortgage – for example, if they borrow conservatively, have a decent income, a secure job and good savings habits. Another good sign is if the borrower buys a property in a market that is likely to rise over the long term.
