First Home Buyers
Despite the Reserve Bank’s LVR, you don’t always need 20% deposit. Most lenders want you to have at least 10% of the total house prince before they’ll consider giving you a loan. There are a few ways to get a deposit together that you may not have thought about which include the KiwiSaver, HomeStart Grant, Welcome Home Loan as well as using a guarantor.
Loan pricing isn’t the be all and end all when it comes to investing. Structuring your loans correctly can play a huge role in making sure you maximize your cash-flow and can reduce the debt in the shortest time possible. Make use of the tools we have available to be on the right side of the ledger.
Land and Construction
With the shortage of housing we are currently experiencing the Land and Construction route has become more and more popular and can be quite a different process to purchasing a regular home.
To break or not to break, that is the question.
With Interest rates at an all-time low, a lot of people are thinking about breaking their current fixed rate to reset at something lower. This is effectively breaking the contract you have signed with the bank, the benefit on the face of it appears obvious for the borrower – stop paying an old fixed rate above 4% and start paying a new rate of perhaps 2.79%.
If I had a dollar for every time I was asked what interest rates would do.
I have never been the fortunate owner of a crystal ball, yet I am constantly asked “what are interest rates going to do over the next couple of years." The reality is I don’t know and nobody genuinely does. People far more learned than I in the area of economics provide any prediction with a caveat.
