Apply for a flexible home loan

You can apply even if your annual income is not exactly $80,000 a year (or $120,000 a year when you're purchasing a house with another person). The sum you qualify for depends on where you live since different areas qualify for different rates. Therefore you will have to live in the house you plan on purchasing since you can't utilize a Welcome home loan unless you officially own a house or are planning to buy a property.

You may need to pay a low charge which is a settled sum that is calculated by taking into account the amount of savings you have. It can be paid in advance or it can be added to your mortgage. Whichever way suits you best.
