    Hi all,

    I am interested to hear from our resident experts, which banks are you able to get a loan with 5-10% deposit and minimal LMI in a mining town like Moranbah, Dysart or Gladstone?

    Also are they available at standard interest rates?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hi Matt

    Certainly standard rates would be available but without checking the LMI post code list I couldnt tell you the maximum LVR.

    Currently on holiday in the UK so a bit difficult to access everything i need.

    Thanks Richard, appreciate your input as always.

    I have just looked up a table from Genworth here http://www.genworth.com.au/cms/groups/webcontent/documents/document/p_000543.pdf

    Gladstone 4680 Category 2
    Moranbah 4744 Doesn’t appear under category 1, 2 or 3
    Dysart 4745 Doesn’t appear under category 1, 2 or 3

    I am hearing that banks are requiring 30% deposits in towns like Moranbah and Dysart, which is likely to significantly limit potential growth.

    As a general rule, which banks are best to go to?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hi Matt

    As i say being in the UK and not in my office in Brisbane it is difficult to comment with accuracy.

    I havent financed a deal in Dysart for about 6 months but the last deal we did was around 90% LVR.
