Keystart, an initiative of the Western Australian Government, has joined the lender panel of Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie, allowing Aussie Brokers to help more Western Australians to own their home sooner.
Since 1989, Keystart has helped more than 100,000 Western Australians buy a home, who may previously have been unable to enter the market as they do not meet the deposit requirements set by mainstream lenders.
Aussie CEO, James Symond, welcomed Keystart to the Aussie panel, “Keystart is an exciting addition to our panel as it provides greater choice and access to affordable home loans for West Australians seeking a genuine alternative lender outside the major and mid-tier banks.
“Keystart has a unique offering, requiring a deposit from as low as two per cent from customers, depending on location. Our WA team of 80 mortgage brokers, including 18 retail stores, are excited to be able to offer Keystart to first home buyers to help them purchase a home sooner.
“Keystart provides a range of unique features for first home buyers and it will be integral in our WA offering in future”, he added.
Keystart’s CEO, Paul Graham said “We are excited to be partnering with Aussie to help more Western Australians into home ownership.
“The broker channel remains an important contributor to Keystart’s business and we welcome the additional choice Aussie provides Western Australians”, he added.
Apart from offering a low deposit, Keystart does not charge lender’s mortgage insurance or ongoing monthly fees.
Mr Symond concluded “In the current tighter lending environment, it’s important that we give our brokers and customers access to such an accessible product.”
