Searching for the perfect place? It’s time to have a look at numbers! Whether buying your own home or an investment property, your ability to do so will largely depend on affordability. Having an honest look at your current salary, debts and expenses will assist in establishing your borrowing power - which is the estimated amount your home loan lender might lend you, based on your current circumstances.

Do you wish to calculate how much you might be able to borrow for your home loan? Our handy tool can help! For best results, fill in a few details about yourself (including salary and expenses) to estimate what your borrowing power could be.

How much could I borrow calculator


This calculator estimates an amount you may be able to borrow, based on the information and interest rate you input. If you change any of the information, including the interest rate, you will obtain a different result. The result does not include any applicable fees. This is not an offer of credit, and you should not rely on it. The actual amount you can borrow can only be determined once you submit a full application to us and we assess your application using our credit criteria applicable at that time. These estimates are indicative only and actual costs and the amount you could borrow may vary based on a number of factors including loan purpose. Before acting on the results of this calculator you should seek professional advice and contact your local RAMS Home Loan Specialist.
