• Unlocking equity in your home to provide funds for investment purposes

  • 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 the loan.  

    Things to consider: 

    • You need to prepare a clear exit strategy for its full repayment prior to the end of the loan term
    • Interest, fees and charges can be capitalised. However you will also need to ensure that the credit limit on the account is sufficient to allow for this capitalisation otherwise repayments will be required. Please note capitalising interest will mean you will reach your limit sooner than if you had been making regular interest only payments  


  • Three reasons to choose this loan

    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)

      • 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 applying for a loan of $200,000 where the $130,000 would be for purchasing an investment property while $70,000 is for investing in a shares portfolio.  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 home, Nick and Diane would be charged interest on the funds accessed from their Line of Credit, instead of paying higher interest rates that generally apply to credit cards.

      In addition, Nick and Diane can make payments, by accessing funds from their Line of Credit, through debit card, BPAY or internet transfer.
