Buying your first home

Top tips to help with buying your first home

When you’re looking to buy your first home, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the options available. Let us help you with some simple tips when buying your first home.

Talk – to an expert who can assist with advice and help with your decision making.

Research – do your research. For instance it’s important to know about the suburbs you may be interested in. We offer customers a free Property Report to assist you with making the right choices.

Location – be clear on what matters to you eg. access to public transport, schools, shops and entertainment. Walk around the suburbs you are interested in and look at what is planned for the area’s future development.

Consider Surrounding Suburbs – if your preferred suburb is outside your budget, consider what’s around the corner.

Register with – to receive property alerts according to your preference.

Loan Products – do your research. Is it important to you that your repayments are fixed for a period of time? Talk to us about fixed verses variable options.

Assistance with getting in to your first home – We have many home loan options available. For example, our Parent Equity Home Loan may be an option, all you need is a parent with equity in their property and willing to “guarantee” part of your loan – usually around 20% of your total loan amount – and that alleviates the need for a deposit from you.

Pre approval – we can provide peace of mind that your finance has been approved so you can go ahead when you find that perfect home for you.

Whether you’re looking for your first home, an investment property or looking at refinancing your existing loan, our Mobile Relationship Team can help you. We offer:

  • Flexible appointment times
  • Convenience – we can come to you
  • Tailor a package that meets your needs
  • Keep you informed of the process
  • Provide data to assist in your decision

We have Mobile Relationship Managers available to help make home loans easy, please give us a call 13 25 85 to be directed to your local Mobile Relationship Manager.
