In a reported world first, realestate.com.au has combined searching for property and getting a home loan in a single experience, allowing people to clearly see properties that are right for them as they look for their perfect home.
Buyers can instantly apply for online conditional approval for a home loan powered by NAB and have their finance information overlayed as they search. Or they can access a panel of more than 30 other lenders through realestate.com.au Home Loans.
The experience gives Australians a new level of confidence that they’re looking at the right places for them while also taking time, confusion and stress out of the home buying journey.
A key feature of the experience is the ‘Liveability’ tool, which allows people as they search to better understand how mortgage repayments on a specific property might affect their lifestyle. Based on how much income is left over after expenses and repayments, a scale will show whether a buyer’s standard of living post-purchase would be ‘Easy’, ‘Stretched’, or ‘Struggling’.
Andrew Rechtman, realestate.com.au executive general manager – Residential, commented: “realestate.com.au Home Loans is about giving home buyers greater choice, convenience and confidence when it comes to finding and financing their home.
“Australians can search with confidence, knowing they have a realistic view of what they can afford, and they can be confident in choosing a home that suits their lifestyle,” Mr Rechtman said.
