      Hi Tam,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      You may take advantage of your existing equity in your home to finance a renovation or property purchase with a line of credit loan. Please use our comparison table to start comparing line of credit loans that suit your needs.

      When you are ready, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the lender’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.

      Before applying, please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions. Alternatively, you can speak to a mortgage broker who can take your personal circumstance into account and offer you a range of borrowing options.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Hi Craig,

      Thank you contacting Finder.

      AMP has yet to announce their response to the RBA’s choice to cut the cash rate. However, we are constantly monitoring these announcements and will update our lenders’ table about rate cuts as each lender announces their decisions. I suggest keeping an eye on this page for further announcements.
