Buying your first home is a BIG deal & exciting!
It may also be a little bit scary.
It’s OK, we’ve got you.
We’ll give you all the information, guidance, support and practical structure you need to not only “buy it” but to really and truly “own it”
When starting out, the first thing that you will typically ask is ‘how much can I afford to borrow?’ – this is true for pretty much all homebuyers. Now, it’s a fair and reasonable question, however the answer is usually in favour of the bank’s bottom line – not necessarily in your best interests.
What does that mean? Well, imagine you go to the bank and ask that question – perhaps you already have. They will ask about your income and expenses amongst other things. They will then plug that information into a calculator and tell you the maximum amount that they will lend to you and the minimum repayment amount.
So, you hear something like “you can borrow lots and lots and your repayments are really, really low” – what you didn’t hear (because they didn’t tell you) is that your payments are really, really low because we are sitting on the lowest interest rates in history and you’ll be paying this off fooooreveeeeer…
The numbers they give you are very powerful, they stick in your mind, they become the benchmark for your property search. They haven’t spent the time to really understand you. They haven’t explored options and strategies with you. They are simply focused on the transaction of selling you a loan – nothing more… and certainly nothing less.
We approach your home ownership from a very different perspective….. yours. We don’t throw arbitrary numbers at you so we can sell you a loan. We don’t simply tell you how much you can afford to borrow based on a set of numbers in a calculator.
We spend the time to understand you; to understand where you’re heading, what you want, what you need and what you are willing to do. Only then will we tell you what you can achieve based on your set of circumstances; based on what you are comfortable to pay, on what your expectations and goals are.
We’ll help you create your strategy. We’ll put the physical structure in place and we’ll stick with you and help you to make it happen.
