We have a range of calculators to help you run the numbers. Estimate how much you could afford to borrow, and what your repayments might look like.


How much can you borrow?

Budgeting is an essential skill when you’re buying any kind of property. Working out your personal budget and sticking to it is the key to affording and maintaining a home loan. A good budget will factor in all of your regular and irregular expenses, including household essentials, debts, transport, insurance, medical costs and personal spending.

A Tassie mortgage consultant can give you essential tips on developing a budget that will help you stay on track and get organised. You can also use our Budget Calculator to get a start on your personal budget.


How much deposit will I need?

The maximum loan available is 95% of the property’s value. This is called the loan to value ratio (LVR). The LVR is not based on the purchase price of a property, but on the value set by an independent valuer engaged by the bank. Many banks currently have a maximum LVR of 90%, but you will need at least 5% of the property value as a deposit. You’ll also need to factor in additional costs associated with buying a home, when saving for your deposit.
