 Use a bond affordability calculator to understand what you can afford when buying a home

An affordability calculator works out the home loan amount you can apply for. 

Your salary after tax, total monthly expenses, interest rate and loan term (years over which you will pay off your bond) are used to estimate the total loan amount you can afford with the monthly repayment amount.

Using the affordability calculator

As a general rule, you should look at spending no more than a third of your monthly income (after tax and deductions) towards your monthly bond repayments. Make use of a bond affordability calculator to understand what you can afford when buying a property.
