Expert review

This home loan package is ideal for first home buyers, those refinancing and the self-employed. This home loan has both full doc and self-employed options. Keep in mind that for full doc loans, lender's mortgage insurance is payable if you have an LVR of 80% or higher, or 60% and above for self-employed loans.

A new offering from RAMS Home Loans can see you get a discount of up to 1% p.a. on the life of your home loan.

  • Self-Employed Line of Credit. Suitable for the self-employed who are looking to unlock the equity in their home, this loan also has a simple application process. You can also benefit from easy access to your equity using BPAY, debit cards, cheques or Bank@Post.
  • Fixed Rate Home Loan. Suitable for first home buyers and investors looking to fix their repayments for periods of 1,2,3,4,5 and 10 years.
