Calling South Australians: want to own your own home?

Own your home sooner with the HomeStart graduate loan

Own your home sooner with the HomeStart graduate loan

Did you know that studying could help you get your own home sooner?

Recently, the South Australian government announced a drop to 2% deposit for the first time ever and no lenders mortgage insurance (LMI) for those eligible for a graduate loan. Previously, a 3% deposit was required but with the change of government there has been an effort to make home ownership more accessible.

For example, a $400,000 home will require a deposit of $8000.

Most lenders will require LMI if there is less than 20% deposit being paid but with the HomeStart finance option, you are not required to pay it.

‘Rather than South Australians having to spend years and years trying to save 20 per cent deposit to get a loan with one of the big four banks, instead that time is now reduced perhaps to only months,’ said Treasurer Stephen Mullighan.

The government is working towards getting more South Australians into homes sooner.

This HomeStart graduate loan is available to eligible graduates with a Certificate III or higher qualification when you buy a home to live in, in South Australia. That’s right— all of Original Campus’ online courses could see you become eligible for this low deposit home loan once you finish the course.

Plus, HomeStart’s home loans have no account keeping fees, making those mortgage repayments all that more easier.

Owning your own home is the great Australian dream but saving a deposit can be a sticking point especially with most commercial lenders requiring deposits of up to 20 per cent.

HomeStart’s decision to slash the minimum deposit for its Graduate Loan to 2% will mean thousands of dollars less in upfront savings, enabling hard working South Aussies to get a foot on the property ladder sooner,’ Premier Peter Malinauskas said.
