What is a bond?

A bond is home loan finance over a plot, dwelling or building loan. The loan is approved over a minimum of 10 years up to 30 years at a linked rate to prime. You may apply for a fixed rate option as well but needs to be arranged with the bank after registration of your bond.

How do I get a bond?

The banks will require you to prove affordability to qualify for a home loan. They qualify you on 30% of your gross salary and availability of net funds to cover the instalment of the home loan. Your credit risk is also taken into account, so your credit risk profile needs to be favourable.

GoBond can apply on your behalf to all the banks to ensure that you are offered the best deal at the best rate. We can also pre-qualify you before you sign an offer to purchase.

Why should I use Go Bond?

GoBond’s experience in home loans and credit extends over 23 years and our range of services allows us to work with you through the entire process of purchasing a home.

We understand the stress of buying your own home and wish to make this process easier, all the while getting the best finance solutions for you.

We have a 90% approval rate and handle the paperwork & negotiations on your behalf at no cost!

How long does it take for a bond application to be approved?

We normally receive an approval from the banks between 3 to 5 days but can take up to 14 working days to ensure that you have received the best deal from all the banks.

The process only takes longer if we have submitted to more than 2 banks and have to await feedback to compare the rates.

Can I apply for a bond if I have been blacklisted?

Some banks can assist you but only with proof that you have settled and paid the debt in full. Other banks want you to apply to have the debt removed from the credit buro first,

GoBond will assist you and give you the best advice and guidance.

What will my interest rate be?

Your interest rate is determined by each bank’s credit score card and % loan applied for. We negotiate the best rate at the banks. All banks offer a better rate if you have a larger deposit.

In other words a 80-90% loan to purchase price will be offered a better rate than a 100% loan.
