Saving your deposit

Although saving for a deposit may seem like a daunting task, with some simple, consistent budgeting, you can reach your goal sooner than you think.

 Use our online calculators to help you plan and save:

How much should I save for my deposit?

An ideal deposit is 20% of the purchase price of the property.

However everyone’s situation is different. If you have less than a 20% deposit, you might be able to borrow up to 95% of the property value.

Note: When you borrow more than 80% of the property value you’ll most likely have to pay Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance (LMI).

Or, if your family acts as guarantor you may be able to borrow 100% of the purchase price with our Family Guarantee.

Plus, you may also be eligible for the First Home Owner Grant.
