• Line of credit

    Unlocking equity in your home to provide funds as needed

  • Line of credit

    Whether due to extra repayments or a capital gain, chances are some equity may have built up in your home over time.   Accessing this equity, to have a transactional facility with a set credit limit, secured by a property, is what a line of credit home loan can offer, subject to being able to service loan.  

    With an approved limit in place, you can access those funds for any number of uses - (for example deposit for another property purchase, travel, renovations, shortfalls in cash flow, that special occasion, and more). 

     

  • Three reasons to choose this loan

     

    Get easy access to funds – BPAY®, debit card, cheque or Bank@Post 

     
     

    Make no regular repayments if balance under your credit limit (but the line of credit needs to be repaid within the term of the loan) 

     
     

    Interest charged only on the outstanding loan balance.

      • Arrange a deposit without touching your savings

        Obtaining a Deposit Bond through RAMS could help you secure your dream home by providing you with an alternative to finding a cash deposit before settlement. A Deposit Bond acts as a guarantee to the vendor, allowing the purchaser to pay the deposit amount (together with the balance of the purchase price) on the day of settlement (rather than funding a deposit up front/on exchange). In addition, a deposit bond could also save you the costs of obtaining bridging finance in order to pay your deposit. More details

    • Nick and Diane were looking at renovating their home but didn’t have the cash to pay for the $70,000 they had in quotes. They had a loan with RAMS for over three years and knew they had equity in their home. Nick and Diane wanted to explore their options so they decided to talk to their RAMS Home Loan Specialist.

      RAMS says....

      Nick and Diane’s RAMS Home Loans Specialist suggested an option they hadn’t considered – a RAMS Line of Credit.

      A RAMS Line of Credit works similarly to a credit card, in that interest is only charged on money that is drawn. As a RAMS Line of Credit would be secured against their property, Nick and Diane would be charged interest at the relatively low interest rate payable for their home loan on funds accessed from their Line of Credit, instead of higher interest rates that generally apply to credit cards. In addition, Nick and Diane can pay for their renovations, using funds from their Line of Credit, by debit card, BPAY or internet transfer.
