Becoming a first home buyer
Buying your first home is an exciting, but big step to take and one that comes with many questions and decisions. The first big question is how much you can borrow and what your likely repayments will be.
That’s where we can help, we’ll do the legwork for you. We can compare home loans across a variety of products available from Australia’s leading lending institutions.
And because you’re a first home buyer, you may be eligible for a first home buyer grant. This grant may be available to Australian citizens or permanent residents who wish to buy or build their first home, which will be their principal place of residence within 12 months of settlement. As grant conditions vary from state to state, contact us to find out more about eligibility requirements in your state and how much grant money you could receive.
We will also liaise with the lender. It’s our job to do the hard work and you can focus on finding the right home for you. We’ll be there every step of the way to guide you through the entire home loan process – from application to approval.
