Buying your dream home is just one online loan application away

Prior to applying for a home loan with us, we recommend that you visit our website and review the massive range of mortgage solutions that we have available.

It's very easy to apply

At ABSA bank we want our customers to be well informed and able to make the best choice when it comes to financing their homes. For this reason, we have made it a priority to be of assistance when customers are looking at various home loan options and can, therefore, consult one of our highly trained consultants in branch or they can visit our website

Using our home loan calculators

You can make use of our home loan calculators to find out home much you can afford to pay each month and what your loan repayments and loan term will likely be. You can also initiate a web chat with one of our customer service agents who will be able to assist you with all of your questions and help get your loan application underway.

A loan that suits your needs

At ABSA bank we also understand that not all of our clients are in a position to save or have saved money in order to put down a deposit for a home. Our clients who are looking to purchase their first home without any kind of deposit may want to look into or focus on our MyHome Home Loan, which is likely to be the best product for your needs.
