Choosing a Home Loan

Choosing a home loan

Whether you are a first-time buyer looking for a home loan or looking to refinance your existing home loan, you'll find it easier to find the loan that meets your needs right here.

Finding the right home loan isn't an easy task with thousands of products from hundreds of lenders it can be overwhelming just thinking about. Instead of searching through thousands of websites and sifting through mountains of information we've compiled the important details in a nice easy to digest table format.

To help you find the home loan we've created a search selector which helps narrow down the list of home loans simply by entering loan amount required, fixed or variable, loan purpose you can quickly narrow down your options. If your looking for a specific type of loan on offer you can use our quick links above the selector to go straight to the home loan results pages. With home loans being such a complicated product there are 3 tables for you to look through detailing rates, fees and features of those loans, you can view each of these tables by clicking on the tabs above the tables. If you've found some home loans that you think will suit your requirements you can compare each of these loans side-by-side by selecting the tick box next to each of the loans and click the compare selected button, in this view you will be able to view each of the loans with a full list of details in a side-by-side comparison.

We also offer a direct link to the home loan providers website where you can click through and get in touch with them directly, or if you would like to ask us a question simply fill out our "help me choose" form and one of our home loan experts will get in touch with you to discuss any questions you may have.
