There’s nothing quite like the special feeling of owning your very own home, and we’re here to make sure that process is as straightforward as possible. No matter where you are in New Zealand, if you’re a first home buyer, or considering taking out a new home loan, take a look below to see what we can do for you, as well as a little Q&A which might come in handy.
We are here to help you to get the right mortgage to suit your needs.
Q: How much of a deposit do I need?A: Generally the answer is 10% for a first home buyer. However, this does depend on how much you intend to borrow, and on your ability to repay the loan amount.
Q: We want to add a room and put on a new deck and need about $100,000: can you help us?A: Hopefully! Firstly though, this is what we’ll need to take into consideration: What’s the house worth? Will you need consent for the work? How much is owing on your house? And what’s your income?
Q: Our mortgage is coming off a fixed term next month, what would you suggest we do?A: What we can do is compare interest rates which are currently on offer across all the lenders, to ensure that you’re getting the best available rates.
Q: We are looking to buy a rental property - can we do it?A: Quite possibly! Firstly, what’s the current value of your house, and what do you owe? Also - what is your income? The lenders currently require a 35% deposit on an investment property and this changes often. We will look at all the options for you across all lenders to get you what you need.

He was incredibly easy to deal with and always kept me in the loop and first and foremost he made me feel like I was the most important client he had... I bet he’s like this with everyone! Great work, great service! Thanks Mark
