Did you know?
Sometimes your lifestyle dictates that inner city or apartment life is a more suitable option in terms of where you live. Whether buying for yourself or as an investor apartment finance can be a little different.
While 90% of financing an apartment is the same as any other mortgage it is the different 10% that trips potential purchasers up. Whether you are buying an existing property or buying off the plan things can work a little differently.
We’re in this together!

Apartment Financing FAQs & Resources:
Do you receive any grants for buying an apartment?
If the property has not been occupied and you are a FHO you may qualify to receive the $10,000 FHOG.
How much will the bank lend me?
All dependant on the banks! If the apartment is inner city and the bank does not want added exposure to the area they may reduce the amount they will lend or not even lend at all.
What does off the plan mean?
Buying off the plan is when you sign a contract to buy an apartment that is yet to be built or is in the process of being built.
What’s the benefit?
Because you are buying directly off the developer you may get the property at a cheaper price. If the apartment is the last one in a complex they may want the asset off their books.
Do you pay stamp duty on apartments?
