Types of Loans

Select the type of loan that you want to learn more about:

  • Home Loans

    A home loan is usually the largest and often long term financial transaction that most individuals will make during their lifetime.

    We find home loans for your specific situation and can also provide 'Property Sales History' to assist you with determining how much you should be paying for a property and/or negotiating with the real estate agent.

    We save you time by doing all the hard work for you. Our service is free and we are fully trained and accredited.

    Home loans come in different types and with different interest rate options.

    With the constant changes in lending criteria and interest rates we will work out which provider is best for you based on your needs. We compare rates, fees and charges to ensure you get the best home loan deal for your financial situation.

  • Pre-approval Loans

    By obtaining a loan pre-approval, it allows you to shop for a property to the value of the home you can afford.

    Depending on the lender it normally takes 24 to 72 hours to assess your application for pre-approval. Pre-approvals can be valid from three months to one year.

  • Business/Commerical Loans

  • Asset Finance & Leasing

    We help all kinds of businesses from small to large leverage their financial capacity.

    Purchasing assets such as equipment and vehicles is a significant financial undertaking. To help you preserve your working capital, we offer a range of equipment and car finance solutions with payment plans that can be customised to your cash flow.

    Select a different type of loan

  • Refinancing/Restructuring

    Whether your circumstances have changed, or you are simply looking for a better loan with more flexibility or looking to consolidate, you should consider refinancing or restructuring.

    Changing loan providers or restructuring could save you lots of money in the long run, but you must consider the up-front fees, stamp duty, government charges and costs. Virtue and Partners have helped many clients change their debt structures to be more tax advantageous. Call us if you would like to know more.

    Considerations to refinance / restructure;

    • Better interest rates
    • Improved features and flexibility
    • Debt consolidation
    • Renovations/ building a new home or development
    • Change of circumstances/income
    • Access equity
    • Meeting repayments

    Select a different type of loan

  • Reverse Mortgage

    A reverse mortgage, also known as Equity Release Loans, allows you to borrow money using the equity in your home as security. The loan may be taken as a lump sum, an income stream, a line of credit or a combination of these options. Interest is charged like any other loan, but you usually don't need to make repayments while you live in your home. The loan must be repaid in full if you sell your home or die or, in most cases, if you move into aged care. Learn more
