Bank West was named Business Bank of the year in 2013 and 2014 offering some of the most affordable personal loans, credit cards and home loans int he country. It is our privilege to have been around for 120 years.
We believe it’s because we give a little extra to keep our customers happy, this is something we’ve prided ourselves on since we started in 1895. Back then we were recognised as the Agricultural Bank of Western Australia. The WA Government set us up to service the needs of the state farmers.
Growth and sustainability
Back in the day, we were known as the Agricultural Bank of Western Australia. We were set up by the WA Government to service the needs of the state’s farmers. Hitting the road was the only effective way of giving services to the farmers.
You should have seen the WA back then; it was a big empty land nothing compared to what it is today. Our consultants would often have to sleep outdoors while they were travelling between farms. So, you see we weren’t joking when we said we give a little extra and clearly we also went the extra mile.
There’s a lot to consider whether you’re buying your first or second home. Like what you would need to look for when you decide to start looking for the perfect property, it can be very overwhelming.
One important factor is that you should try not to let your emotions take over when attending open home inspections because there is more to a house than just a number of bedrooms bathroom and what the kitchen looks like.
We have put together some important things for you to consider when searching through the lists of properties for sale.

Let's look at some key factors
Location - Location, Location, Location is debatably the most important factor of a home! We have all heard the expression, “buy the worst home on the best street” but this doesn’t essentially need to be the case. When you choose a location, consider your proximity to the places that are more important such as work, public transport, freeway access, your lifestyle, schools, shopping centres, shops, parks and so forth and perhaps your friends. Although it may cost you extra to live closer to these things you could save money on transport and not have the aggravation of travelling to far.
Stick to a budget - Your bank loan repayments may be very similar to what you are currently paying on leasing, so you need to work out what you can realistically afford. It’s also important to remember that when you become a homeowner, there are others costs to consider that you previously didn’t need to stress about when you were leasing property. Such as council rates, strata fees and the upkeep of the property. So keep in mind that you would like to maintain your lifestyle, so work out a budget that will suit you before you buy.
Size does matter - There are so numerous different property choices to choose from – apartment, villa, duplex, and townhouse, so plan ahead because size is important. Think about the length of time you plan to live in the property for and if you’re starting a family somewhere in this period; it could be worth to consider a property with extra bedrooms or extra land space for possible extension.
We also offer some niche products such as the Senior Equity Release this option is to assist retired individuals to access the equity on their own and for interest to capitalise until the property is sold.
In addition to this, we also bid some flexible lending policies such as the ability for endorsement of larger properties on a case by case foundation and to accept some who didn’t save their deposit themselves.
We offer much better interest rate discounts should you have a larger down payment or lots of equity in your home and if you apply for a loan over$750 000 a Mortgage Manager could also put in a request for negotiated pricing.
