We are frequently asked by clients whether they can borrow more than the value of the property for renovations when purchasing a property? When it comes to a basic loan, the answer is no. At the time you apply for your loan and sign the sales contract on an agreed purchase price, the bank will send an independent valuer to view the property and confirm the purchase price is at an acceptable price. The lender will then take the value of the property and base the loan amount on the valuation. For example, if you sign a sales contract for the purchase of a property for $450,000 the valuation needs to come in at $450,000. You cannot borrow more than the property is worth.

“How much does it cost to live in Australia?” This is one question that everyone asks no matter what their circumstance. While it is important to know if you will be able to replace your home, pay for private schooling and private health, what most people really want to know is the basic costs of day to day living. One thing becomes very clear after living in Australia for a few months; every income bracket is able to achieve a certain acceptable standard of living.
