Why choose our construction option?

Progress payments

You’re in control: draw down your loan in stages (i.e. slab, frame, lockup, fit out, completion), only once you’ve approved the inclusions and quality of finish.

Manage cash flow

Interest Only payments are available during construction, to help with cash flow. 

Minimise interest

Only pay interest on funds drawn down – not the whole amount upfront – which means lower repayments for you.

Structure your home loan

Option available on our Flexi First Option, Rocket Repay, Fixed Options Home Loans and our Bridging Loan.
