Things you should know
The purpose of this calculator is to provide you with general information about the amount you may be able to borrow for your first home purchase and how long it may take you to save for a deposit, based on the information you provide. The results generated by this calculator are subject to the disclosures below and further information accompanying the calculations.
The calculations do not constitute an offer to acquire any financial product and neither do they constitute any offer or quote for credit from Westpac. Your borrowing power amount may be different when you complete a loan application and all the details relevant to our lending criteria are captured and verified. The calculations should not be relied on for the purpose of making a decision whether to apply for a home loan.
References to any financial or credit product contained in the assumptions are not recommendations to acquire that financial or credit product. You should always refer to the relevant offer document(s) and/or terms and conditions (“T&Cs”) applying to a financial or credit product and ensure you read and understand those documents and/or T&Cs or obtain independent financial advice from a licensed financial services provider prior to making any decision regarding whether you should acquire that product.
Any calculation made by you using this calculator is intended as a guide. Results shown are for illustrative purposes only and are limited to the accuracy of the information provided, the assumptions set out in this section, and information about FHOG and government duties and concessions that are applicable as at 30 August 2018. Unless otherwise indicated, calculations do not take government charges or other fees into account. Any fees costs, concessions and FHOG referred to in the assumptions are estimations only. Actual fees and costs may be higher than those estimated and any first home buyer concessions or FHOG that have been included in the calculations may be lower, which will impact the results.

Rounding of amount of each repayment
In practice, repayments are rounded to at least the nearer cent. However the calculator uses the unrounded repayment to derive the amount of interest payable at points along the graph and in total over the full term of the loan. This assumption allows for a smooth graph and equal repayment amounts.”
