Start your application online
1. Apply online
Tell us about yourself and see how much you could borrow (there’s no credit check until you’ve spoken with a lending manager).
2. We’ll call you
A lending manager will call to answer all your questions and help move your application along.
3. Conditional approval (optional)
We may be able to provide you conditional approval to help you confidently bid or make an offer knowing how much you could afford. Conditional approval is valid for 90 days, and if you need more time we can look to renew it.
4. Full approval
We’ll value your property and make some final checks. If we offer you full loan approval, accept it online and be guided through to loan settlement.

Rate Lock: BankSA will apply the fixed rate available at the loan settlement date or the date the fixed rate term commences, unless you lock a fixed rate in on your loan using our Rate Lock feature. The fixed rate lock-in fee is 0.15% of your loan amount or $500, whichever is higher, capped at $1000 for loans up to $2M. For loans above $2M, the fixed rate lock-in fee is 0.15% of your loan amount. At the end of your fixed rate term, the interest rate will convert to our standard variable interest rate, unless a new fixed rate term’s selected and then the fixed rate is determined on the day the fixed term ends.
*Comparison Rate: The comparison rate is based on a loan of $150,000 over a term of 25 years. WARNING: This comparison rate is true only for the example given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
#Advantage Package apply. A $395 annual package fee applies and is payable from a BankSA Complete Freedom transaction account. Before deciding to open a BankSA Complete Freedom account, read the Terms & Conditions, and consider if the account’s right for you.
