Home Loans

Home Loans for Buying your First Home

For many years Australia has enjoyed one of the greatest home ownership rates in the world, however this is on the decline. How do you make this great Aussie dream a reality?

Common questions to consider

Some questions you may wish to consider include:

  • Am I better off renting than buying?
  • I really want my own place. How much do I need?
  • How much can I borrow?
  • How much deposit will I need?
  • What additional costs will I be up for when I buy a place of my own?
  • I’ve heard that there are concessions for first homebuyers?
  • I’ve done all the numbers and even with the concessions, I still don’t have enough. How do I get my deposit together?
  • What should I do with my money while I try to accumulate a bigger deposit?
  • What types of loans are available?
  • What should I look for in a loan?

Buying an Investment Property

Common questions to consider

Some questions you may wish to consider include:

  • Is it better to put all my spare money into paying off my mortgage or should I consider other investments?

  • Are there tax advantages to owning an investment property?
  • Do I have to pay tax on an investment property?
  • Are there other ways I can invest in property, apart from directly buying a property myself?
