We all know that living in the country is markedly different from living in the city or the suburbs, and rural communities and ways of life are usually completely different from urban ones.
But regardless of whether they’re moving to a community in regional Australia for the first time in their lives or whether they’ve lived in rural communities since the day they were born, many people falsely believe that standard, traditional banks and lending institutions are the ideal places to go when it comes to finding a rural loan
In reality, this is far from being the case. Most banks don’t have the highly specialist knowledge of rural communities and industries required in order to be able to swiftly and effectively assess a rural loan application, meaning such applications are extremely likely to be rejected – as they very often are.
Naturally, this can be the source of great frustration and confusion for those looking to obtain loans for their businesses and/or homes in rural areas; but, fortunately, there are specialist financial institutions dedicated to serving rural communities and businesses available on the Australian market for those individuals who know where to look!
Australia is a highly urbanised society, so whilst most Australians live in large cities, the vast majority of the Australian territory is classified as regional, or rural.
It goes without saying that the term ‘rural loans’ refers to those loans provided for individuals and businesses conducting their affairs in rural areas, but it’s worth considering the concept in a little more detail in order to understand just how important the distinction is between a standard loan and a rural loan.
Rural loans can be loans to start-up farms that require large areas of land, new buildings and plenty of livestock. But they can also be loans for existing, long-established, cross-generational family businesses that are simply looking to invest in new equipment and/or premises in order to remain competitive. They can even be loans in the form of mortgages for individuals looking to buy a new home in a quiet, traditional part of the country.
But whatever the specific circumstances, rural loans always need to take into account certain key characteristics of buying property and/or running a business in regional Australia: the large plot sizes, the numerous outbuildings, the potential presence of livestock, the possibility of land being officially zoned as agricultural (even if its primary purpose is residential), to name a few.
A company that specialises in rural loans will be able to take all of these factors into consideration in order to swiftly and effectively provide solutions that work for their customers.
Here at Sprout, we have plenty of experience when it comes to providing bespoke financial solutions for businesses in the agricultural industry, and for individuals looking for property in regional Australia.
Our team of professional financial experts work closely with our customers to gain an understanding of their needs and requirements before proving quotes for the very best rural loans Australia has to offer.
