First Home Buyers Get your foot in the door
At Credit Union SA we understand how hard it can be for first home buyers to get into the property market.
That’s why, in addition to our very competitive home loan rates, we’re offering a $5,000 First Home Buyers Grant when you borrow at least $300,000 to purchase a home with a loan to value ratio (LVR) over 80%.
From one South Australian to another it’s a step to help you get a foot in the door.
How do I receive the grant?
There are two ways you can choose to receive your grant from Credit Union SA:
1. Have it paid into an account of your choice after settlement, or
2. Choose to have it applied directly towards the settlement of your property purchase.
The choice is yours, but the grant cannot be accessed prior to settlement. Please note that the grant is not available for construction loans.
Calculate your repayments
We have a range of helpful calculators:
- Repayments calculator
- Buying and Selling calculator
- Borrowing power calculator
- Loan Comparison calculator.

We understand that the journey to home ownership is exciting, but it can also be a little daunting the first time around.
Read on to learn about some of the key considerations and milestones you'll complete as you achieve your goal of home ownership.
How much can I borrow?
Every home buyer is different, and the amount that each person can borrow is also different. Your borrowing potential is determined by your income, your assets, your living expenses, and the kind of loan you are after.
Buying your home
So you’re ready to start looking for a home. You’ve got your deposit and your pre-approval sorted, so now you can start looking for your dream home. Real estate websites are great at making houses look desirable online, but seeing a house in person will speak volumes.
