When you’re looking for a home loan, the amount you can borrow depends on a number of factors including:
- the value of the home you want to buy
- the value of your deposit and how much equity you have in your existing home
- your income
- your ability to repay your home loan i.e. how much money you will have to put towards repayments, after you’ve accounted for your regular expenses
- the type of home (freestanding house, apartment, etc.).
To get an indication of how much you may be able to borrow, you can use our home loan affordability calculator.
As soon as you decide you might want to sell and move, contact ANZ. We can show you what you need to do and how much extra you might be able to borrow for your new home.
Getting your home loan pre-approved
To make buying your new home easier, ANZ offers conditionally pre-approved home loans. Having your home loan conditionally pre-approved means the bank has agreed in principle that you can borrow a certain amount of money, subject to some specific terms and conditions – for example, about the type and value of the property you want to buy.
Having your home loan pre-approved means you won’t waste time by looking for homes outside your price range. It also puts you in a better negotiating position as you already have your home loan finance organised.
Another benefit of getting your ANZ home loan pre-approved is that we’ll give you two free eValuer reports from QV. An eValuer report gives you an instant automated estimate of a property’s market value, plus recent comparable property sales in the area. A home loan pre-approval is free and there’s no obligation.
