Building and renovating loans

Designing and building your own home has never been more popular or more achievable with a WBS construction loan.

We know that when you’re building you’re having to juggle your tradies and make design and budget choices every day. You don’t have time to worry about financing the build, which is why with WBS you can set-and-forget that part of the process.

With a WBS construction loan you’ll get:

  • The option to make no-payments from turning the first sod until Code of Compliance* to help you manage your cash flow during the build.
  • The ability to borrow now against the future value of your home to maximise your borrowing power.
  • Access to your funds as the work happens – no need for on-going engineer or valuer sign-offs, saving you time and money.
  • Certainty of loan pre-approval even if you are waiting on titles, allowing you to get in the queue with your builder.
  • Finance options to enable you to stay in your current home until the new build is complete.
  • Access to finance whether your project is a turnkey, self-build or transportable home.

We partner with Presidential Homes in Palmerston North, so if you’re in the market for a quality transportable home build talk to us about the benefits you can access via this partnership.

Investment Property

We have the tools and specialists to help you gain knowledge of the local residential investment market and will find the right financial solutions to suit you and your plans.

Investing in property

  • you own an existing property with good equity.

Bridging the Gap

A Bridging Loan is designed to cover the difference between the purchase of your new home and the sale of your current home.

Things don’t always line up and if you’re having trouble aligning settlement dates or want to move fast on a new real estate opportunity before you’ve sold, a short term bridging loan is the perfect option.

Insurance

Your home is probably your biggest investment, so it makes sense to protect it against the unexpected. While we don’t offer insurance services ourselves, we partner with Provincial Insurance brokers – brokers who share our commitment to helping locals and our community protect their future.
