    Being self-employed can mean fluctuations in your income. We understand.  

    It can also mean you spend more time looking after customers and perhaps less time maintaining paperwork. We appreciate this reality too. 

    So if you’re self-employed and in the market for a home loan, we’ve got several home loans for the self-employed that don’t require the usual financial statements or tax returns.

    RAMS were awarded 'Best Self-Employed Lender' at the 2017 Australian Lending Awards, which highlight mortgage lenders who provide exceptional products and services.

  • Home loan calculators

    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.
