Having a real person in an actual branch to talk to was a big help to Adam and Jon. They started talking with Greater Bank 12 months before they bought their first home.
The helpful information they got not only gave them the goal of a housing deposit to work towards – it made it seem achievable.
When the boys decided to switch all their banking to Greater Bank, it was a cinch - now they can keep track of their loan repayments and do all their day-to-day banking on the one handy app.
Your Here's How Toolkit
Here's How easy we've made it to get your first home loan.
Source your deposit
Generally, you’ll need to have saved a minimum 5% of the purchase price as a deposit. A high-interest savings account, such as The Greater Bank Bonus Saver, is great for accumulating a deposit as it rewards your good saving habits by paying interest rate when you make a deposit and no withdrawals in a given month.
If your parents are happy to give you a hand in providing security for your loan, our Family Pledge option may mean you can reduce, or even eliminate, the deposit amount you need to contribute.
