We can help make each stage of your next-home-buying journey a little simpler for you.
Make decisions with confidence
Our home finance managers can guide you through each stage, whether you need to buy before you sell, sell before you buy, align settlement with your next purchase, or simply need more information before you take the next step. Whatever your question, we're here to help.
Take your loan with you
Loan portability means you may be able to transfer your existing Westpac loan and all of its features to your new property without going through the hassle of refinancing or reapplying (conditions apply).
Bridge the gap
Need to buy your next home before selling your old one? A Westpac Bridging Loan can give you a way to access the funds you need over the short term to finance both properties, while you sell your current home (conditions apply).
Applying is simple, get started online
