Need a home loan? Deposits
ABSA, FNB, Nedbank, Investec and Standard
Bank will consider approving loans up to 100% in general. Eskom
provides up to 104% loans (to include costs) to their employees.
When you are
considering lending money from the bank to buy property, a home
loan is required. Please see our
bond calculator to calculate your repayments on the price of
your desired home.
you need to finance a larger % of your home, or buy a new home,
please speak to a bond consultant or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org,
to find out what is possible.
We can also
get a home loan consultant to come and see you should that be
required. Note that home
loan debt is still one of the cheapest forms of credit there is
in terms of the interest % charged and is seen as 'good credit'
as you are financing an asset, something that has the potential
to grow in value, unlike credit for cars, furniture, clothing
and groceries, which is seen as 'bad credit'.
In terms of
loans, banks limit loans to 100% Loan-to-value. This means the bank will lend
you up to 100% of the perceived market value of the property you
Credit Act, which came into effect a while ago, request that
banks verify that clients can afford the said loan. In
terms of the requirements, the client needs to show that there
is enough money to service the bond. This is calculated by
taking the client's total monthly income and deduct total
monthly expenses. I.e. if the income is R20000 and
expenses R15000, the client will have R5000 available to service
Banks do not
enjoy doing repossessions. They are not in the business of
selling repossessed properties and as such do so only to recover
bad debts. But in a depressed real estate market, it is not
really that easy to get a good price on a repossessed property,
due to outstanding rates and taxes and other expenses.
Costs, such as transfer fees are no longer financed by
any of the 4 big banks.
Fixed rates are
possible at around prime +1 for up to 2 years, and higher rates
for longer periods allowing you to plan better as your home loan
expense is fixed.
Some banks also discontinued their payment holiday option, where
it was possible to skip payments.
You can obtain your
financing from any of the banks directly as soon as you
have your OTP (Offer to purchase) in place, obtainable from
CenturionRealEstate, or you can make use
of our bond consultants, Ooba,
who will manage the process for you at no extra cost.
