OOBA’S Mobile App


Talk prospective buyers through the minefield of applying for mortgages.



When meeting clients at a property, it pays to have information at your fingertips to talk them through the cost implications of putting in an offer. Talking specifics speeds up the process and shows you mean business.



The app’s powerful calculators are useful to both buyers and agents. The Affordability calculator gives prospective buyers an idea of the bond for which they are likely to qualify, and a bond repayment tool ensures that purchasers know what they can expect to pay before they put in an offer. Bond fees and transfer costs often come as a nasty surprise for first-time buyers, so a cost calculator lays out additional upfront expenses.



The calculators are neatly integrated into a quick-access menu, where you’ll also find an FAQ section as well as the latest mortgage finance news. The free app is available for iOS and Android devices.
