    What is interest rate on a construction loan for my new house? The lending ratio is only 55% and has plenty of income.

    Thanks,
    Peter

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      We’re unable to provide the specific rate however if you consider applying for a construction loan with Bankwest, simply head to their official page where you may learn more about their offered products as well as get their contact information.

      I recommend that you check the details of the loan, eligibility requirements, and its terms and conditions before you apply. I also suggest that you seek help from a mortgage broker if you’re looking for providers that offer the cheapest rate.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi BSPC,

      Thanks for your question.

      Generally, you will pay LMI on your home loan if you are borrowing more than 80% of the property value on a standard loan, or more than 60% of the property value on a low doc loan.

      Please feel free to read more about lender’s mortgage insurance to better understand the overall costs of purchasing a property and applying for a home loan.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
