How Much Can I Borrow for Mortgage in NZ? 


Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or looking to refinance, one of the most critical questions is, "how much can I borrow?"

At Total Mortgages, we provide the tools and guidance you need to answer this question confidently. Our mortgage borrowing calculator NZ is designed to give you an estimate of your borrowing power based on your income, expenses, and loan details.


How to Calculate How Much I Can Afford for a House


Your borrowing capacity or power is primarily determined by your ability to repay the loan. It's calculated based on several factors:

  • Your income: This includes your salary, any rental income, dividends, etc.
  • Your expenses: These include your living costs, existing loan repayments, credit card limits, and more.
  • Interest rates: The current interest rate environment will affect how much you can borrow.
  • Loan term: The length of your loan can impact your repayments and hence your borrowing capacity.

Our mortgage borrowing calculator helps you estimate these figures to get a sense of your borrowing power. We also have a handy mortgage repayment calculator.
