We’ll help you into your First Home.

Buying your first home is likely to be one of the largest purchases you'll make. In Australia, first home buyers can take advantage of the current market conditions as well as generous Government Incentives (including the first home owner grant) to get on the property ladder.

We've worked with clients across Australia to access the different first home owner grants (FHOG) as well as the various stamp duty and other concessions that may be available depending on which state you are in. We can talk you through your various options as well as helping you compare things like buying vacant land vs. an established home. You may also be eligible for the Home Guarantee Scheme which can make a big difference in the type of property you may be able to purchase.

Understanding the process to buying your first home is critical as well as understanding how much you can borrow and how much you should borrow. We've been supporting first home buyers through the purchasing process for years and can help guide you through purchasing your first home.

We're a proud member of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia and can help First Home Buyers right across Australia. If you're looking to buy your first home, we have the expertise and experience to guide you through the process and make the right choice.

Frequently Asked Questions

My business financials aren't up-to-date, can I still secure financing?

Yes, you can. Depending on factors such as GST registration and the length of time your ABN has been established, it may be possible in some cases to use financials from the previous financial year. Some lenders also offer financing without financials, provided your BAS is current and the numbers align. Understanding which lenders are more accommodating to self-employed applicants is crucial, and our expertise can guide you through these types of applications.

Do you impose any fees?

In general, no. However, there are exceptions that depend on the complexity of your situation and whether we will receive compensation for our services. Any applicable fees will be transparently communicated to you at an early stage.

How much deposit do I need?

The notion that a 20% deposit is mandatory is a misconception. Depending on your circumstances, the minimum deposit is often just 5%. We will advise you on the required deposit during your initial appointment with us. If you have a family guarantor, it may even be possible to buy property with no deposit at all. Feel free to contact us for more information.

Is it genuinely possible to pay off my loan in 10 years?

Absolutely! Like anything worthwhile, it requires commitment and sacrifice, but the prospect of being debt-free in a decade sounds appealing, doesn't it?

What's the best interest rate?

The best interest rate varies from person to person based on individual circumstances. A larger deposit and borrowing less than 80% of the property value can help secure more favourable rates. However, the interest rate is just one of several factors we consider when making recommendations. Other factors include lending products, service quality, turnaround times, flexibility, and lender policies. Our goal is to ensure our clients don't overpay, so we frequently request better pricing from lenders during regular loan reviews.

We don't reside in Victoria. Can you still assist us?

Absolutely, no problem. Our services are entirely digital, and our appointments are primarily conducted online. We have clients from all over Australia, and even some based overseas, so your location poses no hindrance.
