Limited offer: Three months left to take advantage of Keystart changes
Earlier this year, the State Government announced changes to Keystart – a change that would benefit thousands of West Australians ready to take their first step on the property ladder.
Keystart increased the maximum income limits for their low deposit home loan – but only for a limited time.
The increased income limits will be available to all applicants who enter into a sales contract to purchase an established property or build a new home before 31 December 2019.
On January 1, 2020, Keystart’s higher income limit will revert back to the previous amount, meaning you only have four months left of this exclusive offer.
|Region||Current income limits||New income limits||Property purchase price cap|
|Metropolitan area||$90,000 (Singles)
(excluding Kimberley & Pilbara)
If you’re not familiar with Keystart, here’s a quick summary:
Keystart is a low income lender, meaning for singles, couples or families finding it difficult to get a loan as a first home buyer through other lending institutions, there is another option to finance your new home.
- Reduced payments during the construction of your new home
- No LMI (Lenders Mortgage Insurance) which will save you thousands of dollars
- Only a small 2% deposit is required compared to 5% with other lenders
- Loans to those who have had defaults or been bankrupt
- No monthly account keeping fees
Together with the $10,000 First Home Owners Grant for those who build a new home, plus historic low interest rated and excellent buyer incentives from builders and developers, there really has never been a better time to build your first home.
