How much do I need to borrow?

Knowing what you can afford to borrow is really important. You may have a home loan, but you still want a life.

A good place to start

Make a list of your current and future needs and expenses, our checklists might be able to help you. Don't forget to include any plans you may have for the future, and how much it's going to cost.

Are you planning a family?

Will you or your partner be going on maternity/paternity leave?
