100% 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 set of requirements, 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 100+% home loans were introduced.
Standard Banks’ 100+% 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.
- You need to be a first time buyer
- The Home Loan amount must be between R 100,000 and R 2 million
- You need to earn a single or joint income of at least R 6,000/pm
