First Home Buyers
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?
Working with Home Loans
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 40% 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.
