About Better Compare

Better Compare is one of South Africa’s leading online financial and insurance service comparison platforms.

Whether you’re looking to take out a personal loan to refurbish your home or are looking for a more affordable car insurance policy, this platform will help you find it.

Better Compare’s instant quotes

If you’re looking to switch plans or take out a loan, you can get a handful of instant quotes from some of South Africa’s leading service providers. This includes both banks and smaller providers that offer specialised products and services.

The lenders and insurance providers included in Better Compare’s panel include all providers that have agreed to be included. Better Compare does no list products based on agreements and commission structure but rather, lists products based on their cost.

This ensures you can get the loan or insurance policy you’re looking for without worrying that bias and profit are the platforms core objectives.

Quotes from up to 8 leading banks

When purchasing a property it’s important to secure the most affordable and suitable home loan to go along with it.

While some people choose to apply directly with their bank, it’s always best to make use of a bond originator.

The Better Compare and BetterBond partnership

BetterBond is the bond origination service provider behind Better Comapre’s home loan quotes. In order for them to offer you a quote, you must have first made an Offer to Purchase on a property.

They’ll then assess your affordability, collect your personal information and supporting documents and submit these to all major banks. Once offers start coming in they’ll review these and even negotiate based on offers received from other banks.

This puts you in the position to find the most competitive finance offer and, where one bank may reject your application, another may very well approve it. Better Bond’s originators have close relationships with all the banks and know exactly what their lending criteria is and how to use this to get you the best possible home loan deal.

Apply for your Better Compare home loan quotes now

To get quotes online through Better Compare you simply need to fill in a simple application and submit it, within days you’ll have a handful of formal mortgage quotes. Better Bond will even help you review the offers and choose the best one.
