Meet Sucasa: the Robin Hood of home loans for first time buyers

If you are an aspiring first time home buyer, here’s some good news for a change. There’s a new lender in the home loan space and they are hoping to help you break into home ownership faster, easier, and cheaper. 

Taking on a Robin Hood vibe,  Sucasa is giving back to borrowers by ditching the requirement of Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI). 

Lender’s Mortgage Insurance is insurance borrowers are generally required to pay when they don’t have a full 20% deposit. Even though you pay for it, it’s not an insurance to protect you. This insures the bank against the possibility of a loan default. While the cost of this insurance usually gets added to the total loan amount, it can total in the thousand of dollars. 

With Sucasa’s Ultra Low Rate Home Loan, you’ll still need to have at least a 5% deposit saved and meet strict lending requirements, so having an excellent financial track record will be key to getting your loan approved.

It is also worth noting that the loan is also only available if in metro capital cities (excluding the NT). Other loan features include free repayments and redraw and application or ongoing fees. Upfront fees include a $395 valuation and $395 settlement fee. 

So if you’re in the market right now for your first home, Sucasa is worth considering. Another option is the Mozo Experts Choice Award-winning Up Home Loan. It’s got a lower interest rate than Sucasa but it does require borrowers to have at least a deposit of 10% and LMI is payable.
