What Our Customers Say


How much deposit do I need for my first home?

As a first home buyer purchasing a property that is exempt from stamp duty, ideally you would have at least a 5% deposit saved up. The more you contribute initially though, the less interest you’ll be charged in the long run so it is always best to contribute as much as you can, whilst leaving yourself a buffer just in case.

What is Lenders Mortgage Insurance?

If you are contributing less than 20% you may have to pay lenders mortgage insurance to cover the lender, not you unfortunately! This is a once off, upfront fee that your broker will explain in detail. Lenders mortgage Insurance can be waived by some lenders for specific industry professionals. Alternatively, the insurance premium can be avoided if a parent is able to offer a property they own to reduce the risk to the lender. Your broker will fill you in on all the details.

What is a home loan pre-approval?

A pre-approval should be the first step to the home buying process and involves applying to a lender for approval, subject only to them being happy with the property you buy. Your broker will handle all the elements of your pre-approval application so you can get peace of mind that a lender is satisfied with your credit history and borrowing capacity, enabling you to safely buy at auction. We always recommend first home buyers organise a robust pre approval with as few conditions attached as possible, before embarking on your home buying journey. If you don’t find a property straight away, your broker will make sure your pre approval remains active to give you all the time you need to find the right property for you.

What first home grants can I apply for?

When buying a first home in Victoria, you may be eligible for certain concessions including: stamp duty reduction, the First Home Buyers Loan Deposit Scheme or a First Home Owner Grant. Eligibility depends on each scheme’s set criteria. Your broker will help you through that aspect too.
