    Consolidate several debts into a single repayment (potentially at a lower rate)^.

    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.  View all of our calculators.
