Buy my first home
Buying your first home can be both exciting and overwhelming. After all, it’s your first step onto the property ladder and quite possibly your first major investment.
Buy my next home
You may have grown out of, or are tired of your current home. Perhaps your children have grown up and left the nest, or your work circumstances have changed and you need to relocate. Either way, the first step is to work out your requirements.
Refinance my home loan
Even a small reduction to your interest rate can save you thousands of dollars over the term of your loan. On top of saving yourself money, there are many reasons why you might consider refinancing your home loan.
Purchase an investment property
Property investment can be a very rewarding endeavour. But it does require careful and thorough planning in order to maximise your returns and manage taxation issues.
Fast pre-approvals to let you shop with confidence.
Buying a vehicle should be exciting. So to help you enjoy the thrill of the chase, Credit Union SA will help you out with a fast and easy car loan pre-approval.
Our loans can be used for new or not-so-new cars, motorcycles, boats or caravans. You can even refinance an existing car loan from another provider.

Buy a car
Owning your own car is a great feeling, but the glow wears off quickly if it forces you to sacrifice the good things in life.
Insure my car

Go on a holiday
Although this certainly isn’t something to rush, the sooner you can finalise your itinerary and travel plans the better.
Save and budget
Whatever you have your heart set on, whether it’s a deposit for your first home, a new car, a beautiful wedding, or something else entirely, saving for it doesn’t have to be difficult.
Save while paying off debt
A recent report from the OECD found that Australians have one of the largest household debts in the world. So, it’s no surprise that a lot of us feel like we will never get out of debt.
Own your banking: The credit union difference
At Credit Union SA, we offer all the same services as a bank but with one very important difference - our highest priorities are our members and our community.
There are two ways you can choose to receive your First Home Buyers Grant from Credit Union SA:
- Have it paid into an account of your choice after settlement. Please note the grant cannot be accessed prior to settle for new complete or established homes. If you are constructing, the grant will be paid on confirmation that the foundation has been poured.
- Choose to have it applied directly towards the settlement of your property purchase, or when constructing, the grant is paid when the foundation is poured.
Struggling to save up enough of a deposit to buy your first home or first investment property? Then our Family Guarantee could be just the thing to get you into a place you can call your own. Our Family Guarantee enables first home buyers with limited savings to enter the property market sooner*.
Here's how it works – If your parents or other family members have equity in their home, investment property or have a Term Deposit with Credit Union SA, you can use that equity or investment to guarantee a portion of your loan.
Which family members can provide a Family Guarantee?
Credit Union SA will consider the provision of guarantees by other immediate family members where a guarantee from the above-mentioned family members would not be appropriate.
When can a Family Guarantee be used?
- purchase a new property;
- purchase an established property;
- build a new home.
Where a borrower is entitled to a government grant, the entitlement will not be affected by the provision of a Family Guarantee. Family Guarantees will not usually be accepted by the Credit Union where offered to support borrowings for a second/subsequent property or for any other purpose.Download our Family Guarantee Guide
