Westpac is one of the big four banks and as such has a lot to offer borrowers from competitive rates to full-featured products and convenient online access. While Westpac is ideal for some borrowers, such as high net individuals, it relies on its subsidiaries, such as St. George Bank to provide quality options to first-time homebuyers and self-employed borrowers. Westpac has the ability to be choosy in who they approve, which means with a bad credit history or a low deposit, you may not qualify for a home loan.

Low doc loans available
