Want to know more about owner-occupied home loans?
Check out our frequently asked questions for our owner-occupied home loans
What is an owner-occupied home loan?
What does owner occupied mean? An owner-occupied home loan (or live-in home loan), is a home loan you can get to purchase a property you want to live-in. This is different to an investment home loan which is a loan you get for a property you are using as an investment, and aren’t living in. With that being said, you can easily change your investment loan into a owner-occupied loan if your circumstances change.
What's the difference between an owner occupied property and an investment property
As you’d expect from their names, the difference between an owner-occupied property and an investment property is whether or not you’re living in it. If you’re living in the property it’s considered an owner-occupied property, but if you’re intending to use your property as a source of income (through rental income or capital gains) and living in a different property it’s an investment property. The type of property you have will determine what type of home loan you need (either owner-occupied or investment). Owner-occupied home loan rates tend to be lower than investment home loan rates.
Are owner occupied home loans cheaper?
Owner-occupied home loans do generally have lower interest rates than investment home loans. This is because owner-occupied home loans are generally seen as less risky than investor home loans.
Can I get an owner occupied loan for my investment property?
You can’t get an owner-occupied loan for an investment property. You’ll need to specify in your loan application if you’re planning to live in the property you’re taking a loan out against. If you’re not going to be living in the property, you’ll need to get an investment home loan. Likewise, if you plan to move into your investment property you can turn your investment home loan into an owner-occupied home loan.
Switching your investment loan to owner-occupied?
If you’ve moved into your investment property and become an owner-occupier, you’ll need an owner-occupier home loan. If you’re already an existing customer you’ll need to contact our post settlement team either by email or phone.
And if you’re a new customer, you’ll need to refinance your home loan but you’ll be applying for an owner-occupied home loan instead of an investment. You also don’t need to record your rental income for that property in the application.
How this borrowing calculator works
How do you calculate borrowing capacity
This borrowing calculator is a guide only, and gives you an estimate of how much you could borrow with Tiimely Home, based on the income and expenses you entered, our current Tiimely Own home loan interest rates and an assumed loan term of 30 years. It is not credit approval. You’ll still need at least a 10% deposit (and for deposits below 20% Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is applicable).
We’re responsible lenders, so we calculate your borrowing power using the higher of your estimated expenses and your HEM (Household Expenditure Measure – an Australian average expenditure benchmark). Find out more about borrowing power.
You’ll get a qualified assessment when you begin an application, and enter the specifics of the property, your loan type, personal details and your financials. Find out more about our eligibility criteria here.

Our home loan borrowing calculator takes into account the type of loan you’re applying for, your income, and your expenses to give you an idea of how much you can expect to be able to borrow.
