The formulas used to provide answers in these home loan calculator tables will provide close approximations of the real-life figures. They do not take into account such items as establishment or application fees, government charges and the like. They should be regarded as indicative only. Check with RAMS Home Loans for final figures. Loan terms of up to 30 years apply to RAMS’ home loan products.
Whether buying a new home, refinancing an existing home loan or investing in property, RAMS mortgage calculators can give you an estimate of what your repayments could be, based on your home loan amount, your loan type and the interest rate you think you'll be paying. Once you get an idea of your mortgage repayments from the calculator, together with the rest of your budget, you'll start to see whether you can realistically afford the home you want to buy. Your local RAMS franchisee can also help guide you through this process.
Fees and costs when buying a house are not limited to the agreed property price. Government fees, Lenders Mortgage Insurance (where applicable), council rates and utilities all add up. That’s on top of upfront costs such as conveyancing fees, property inspections and removal costs.

Additionally, the offset account acts as an everyday account and you can access your funds anytime.
