How Much Do I Need For A Home Loan In New Zealand?
The property market in New Zealand is constantly in flux. With recent spikes in house prices, there are opportunities to borrow from your bank with as little as a 5-10% deposit. We can determine whether you meet the criteria for a Kāinga Ora First Home Loan which could enable you to buy your first home with only a 5% deposit. There are also other assistance options through KiwiSaver schemes which are worth exploring.
Keep in mind that the lower your initial deposit, the more risk there is to both the borrower and lender. If you take out a mortgage for more than 80% of the property’s value, you’ll likely have higher interest rates or fees to cover the higher risk that the lender faces in case you default.
To reduce this risk, lenders typically require a minimum deposit of at least 20% of the full house price. If the house is worth $700,000, you would need a deposit of at least $140,000. If you have sold a previous home, you can think about using that money towards paying for your new home.
MyFuture is here to help you make the most of your resources and get you on track to secure a deposit and find you the best mortgage around. Reach out today for a FREE no obligation Discovery Session with our Qualified Financial Advisers.
