Buying your first home
This could be the year to buy your first home! Isn’t that exciting? Home values have increased over the last decade while mortgage rates have dropped to historic lows, so now could be the right time to consider taking the plunge into the property market. We can help you by:
- Determining your borrowing capacity.
- Review your budget to save for your deposit.
- Exploring alternative ideas for a deposit, such as a guarantor’s home loan, for example.
- Helping you create a plan to clear off any debt and/or improve your credit rating to make you a more attractive prospect for lenders.
- Exploring available grants, concessions, or other initiatives you may be eligible for.
- Giving you referrals for reputable professional valuators, conveyancers, solicitors, and accountants.
- Organising pre-approval for a home loan, so you know how much you can spend and save time on your property search.
- Managing the loan application and submission process on your behalf to ensure a smooth settlement.
Moving into your next home
Upsizing, downsizing, sea-change, treechange – there are many reasons and motivations for moving into your next home this year. With so many options it can get a bit overwhelming.
