Home Loan Options for Pensioners

With the help of the A.S.A.G. Calculator, it can give you a general idea of the available equity in your home.
Payments can be done as either or a combination of a lump sum, regular instalments or cash reserve.
Access more equity and draw down available proceeds in one lump sum at closing. Future funds can be received either through Regular Instalments or a Cash Reserve.
The regular advance option is ideal for you if you want to maintain a lifestyle and the flow of your income. This may also work well if you are moving to a residential aged care and need to pay accommodation regularly.

What People Say About Us
I have been absolutely thrilled with not just the professional service offered by ASAG but also by their kindness and understanding. Compared to two other major Reverse Mortgage companies who between them took 13 months to decline my application due to me living in a resort I have found Gavin Luka at ASAG extraordinary in his patience with any amount of questions which were answered so promptly and in full. A very happy life ahead.

I have used this company very recently and especially Gavin.He was so helpful in every way and talked me through everything that I needed to do.He was so polite , understanding and gentle with this gal as I was sick at the time but he just explained it all step by step and made the whole procedure as painless as possible though it wasn’t as easy a procedure as I’d hoped.They always answered the phone promptly and if Gavin wasn’t immediately available he’d always ring back very promptly.I can assure you this company is so easy to deal with.
