Absa 110% home loans

The doors are now opening.

Absa home loans this morning announced that 110% home loans will be offered to lower income earners. This is a big bold move that seems to have been started by Std Bank home loans.

According to the Business Day:

MORTGAGES of 110% are now available to low income earners, ABSA said today as it adjusted its lending criteria.

Absa has become the first bank to provide relief to low income earners by offering 110% bonds with a monthly income up of to R11,000,” the bank said in a statement.

“The turn in the economic cycle is becoming evident and as such we need to review our customer offerings.

People with bad credit can improve their credit standing by being regular in their credit transactions in the future. Credit repair has a positive impact on one's credit history.

Home Loans said...

It is obvious that if you go regular in your credit transactions your credit standing will improve. but is there any other way?

Online Home Loans said...

They've barely begun building it or getting funds together. I think we're a long way off a detailed timetable!

Property South Africa said...

I think its great that banks like ABSA are now offering home loans to low income consumers.

It makes their dream of buying property in south africa a reality.

The problem is that many South Africans have been living on credit cards and so have bad credit.
How are these people supposed to get home loans?

Thanks for this nice informative blog post. When negotiating your mortgage rate, make sure your lender is prepared to lock in your rate for at least 30-60 days. This way you will be guaranteed a particular rate even if rates skyrocket the next day. Another not trick many individuals are not aware of is to include a clause that also will allow you to take a lower rate if rates fall during this period. This is a great mortgage rate tip because you get your mortgage rate locked in so it can’t go any higher, but if the average mortgage rate goes lower you receive the lower rate.

I think its a great idea that banks are offering home loans to low income households.

It makes their dream of buying Sectional Title Property in South Africa a reality.

The problem is that many South Africans have been living on credit cards and have been bad payers in the past.
I believe that the NCA will educate the consumer and the institutions to lend more responsibly and ensure that each South African citizen will be able to realise their dream on owning their own property.
