Standard Bank JumpStart Home Loans

108% Mortgages for First-Time home buyers from Standard Bank

If you’ve never owned a home before and are looking to purchase a property for the first time, you’re often referred to as a First-Time Home Buyer.

First-Time Home Buyers usually have similar problems and therefore the banks have developed mortgage solutions specifically for this type of client.

One of the biggest obstacles first-time home buyers faced in previous years was that they could not afford to pay the costs involved in applying for a homeloan. Also, very often these clients could not afford to put down a deposit on their mortgage as a result 108% home loans were introduced.

Standard Banks 108% mortgage is called the JumpStart Home Loan, and it is only available to First-Time Buyers. A similar home loan called the Costs-Inclusive Home Loan is available for Second-Time Buyers.

    How does the process work? Does the bank oversee the actual purchase or do you just avail funds and let the client do his own purchase
