Can you borrow more money with a bigger deposit?

In short, no. However, your maximum purchase price may increase with a higher deposit.

When we look at your borrowing power, we take into account your ability to comfortably meet repayment requirements, which is impacted by your income, expenses, other financial commitments and living/family situation (eg de facto, single, dependents or no). All of these factors can impact how much you can borrow. Using tools like borrowing calculators is an easy way to get an idea of how much you can borrow.

Legal things about our rates
Our home loans are subject to credit criteria and eligibility requirements. Home loan interest rates are for new customers only and can change. Our comparison rates are based on a $150,000 loan amount over a 25 year term. They factor in fees associated with applying for the loan; ongoing fees and fees associated with leaving the loan. Our fixed loans roll to a variable principal and interest rate at the end of the fixed term. If the interest only period is not specified, the comparison rate is calculated on a one year period.

WARNING: The comparison rates are true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
