    Tama yung sinabi ni JCSantos usually 5% but be reminded na hindi kasali dun yung mga grants para sa first time home buyers kaya minsan imbes na 5% mas maliit pa. Depende yan sa bibilhin mo and of course sa bank.

    Happy house hunting!

    Hi Shinyshan, best thing to do is to go to a mortgage broker or home lender. Although maraming nagsasabi dito na 5%, the actual deposit should be 20%. If you only have 5% deposit, the bank will require you to pay mortgage insurance because you are borrowing more than 80% of the property value. Depending on the house value, your mortgage insurance could be more than $20K. By the way, have you heard about FHSA (First Home Savings Account)? FHSA will help you save to buy your first home. You may check the link below.

    It starts from 5% I think. I too will be applying for home loan because I have heard a lot about income tax benefit on home loan as it would help me save some money on taxes that I am already paying. What is your opinion regarding it?

    You can only claim tax deductions on expenses on your homeloan(ie interest) if the property is rented out( part or all). For owner occupied, theres no tax benefits. The link you quoted above is not applicable to Australia. Most banks allows you to borrow up to 95% of the property value. This means you only need to pay the 5% balance but the bank will take out a Loan Mortgage Insurance payable by the homeowner. LMI can be form part of the loan or you can pay it in cash...a 400K loan will cost at least 10K LMI...LMI can only be waived if you will deposit at least 20% of the value if the property..

    When estimating the total amount needed..consider the following
    1. Purchase Price
    2. LMI
    3. Stamp duty ( none in many of the states, abolished na like in Qld for house below 800k yata)
    4. Other expenses( conveyancer, etc.) which can be paid separately

    Less...
    1 First homeowners grant( if eligible)
    2. Deposit

    The balance should be 95% or less of the value of the property which will be determined by a property evaluator organised by the bank. If not you will be required to increase out of pocket participation. The amount of loan granted by the bank will also be determined by your capacity to pay( based on income and expenses).

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
