How to find a home loan for an Adelaide Hills property
So, you have found the perfect property in the Adelaide Hills – now to arrange a home loan.
The first key step in getting a home loan is saving for a deposit. There are many loans available with differing deposit requirements. The one thing to note is that there are very few (if any) no deposit home loans available now, so some form of deposit for your home loan is required. If you have the ability to save for a higher deposit you will end up paying less over the life of your loan.
The second step in getting a home loan is to choose the right home loan to suit you. There are many different loans with different features available by many lenders. Some features you may consider are whether to have a fixed, variable or split interest rate home loan. Other things to consider are the type of loan you choose, from a ‘line of credit’ loan to offset account with your loan, all these options will depend on your individual set of circumstance.
