First Home Buyers Auckland

Most banks and lenders will require a minimum deposit of 5 per cent of the value of the property you are purchasing, before they will approve you for a home loan. Depending on the lender and your individual situation, you may be able to fund your deposit from a range of sources, including genuine savings, monetary gifts, inheritances and first home owner incentives. However, most lenders will require at least a portion of your deposit to come from genuine savings. If you don’t have the deposit required, you may be able to make use of family equity, also known as a limited guarantor loan. The most common form of family equity is where a family member, offers their existing property as security for a portion of the home loan, generally around 20 per cent.

Investment Loans Auckland

​Property investment can be a smart wealth creation strategy, if you get it right. And that doesn’t just mean finding the right property – you need the right investment finance as well. Your investment loan package should be tailored to your investment strategy and goals. I work closely with your financial planner and accountant to make that happen. Whether you are an experienced property investor with a big portfolio, or just starting out with your first property, I can help you get the right investment loan for your circumstances.​

Refinancing Loans

​Refinancing your mortgage is something that takes careful consideration. The most important thing to look at is if refinancing will place you in a better position than you would be if you stuck with your current loan. I can go through the sums with you to show you the costs involved in changing home loans, as well as your projected costs over a set time-frame for both your current and proposed home loans. And if you decide that refinancing is the right move for you, I will help you complete all the necessary paperwork to make the change.​

Home Loan Pre-Approval

​Home loan pre-approval is a great way to ensure you know how much you can afford to pay for a property before you even start looking. A written pre-approval can also give you an advantage when negotiating on a property with a vendor, as opposed to someone who has no pre-approval or finance in place. Home loan pre-approval is generally valid for about three months, and you will still need a satisfactory valuation on the property you intend to purchase before your pre-approval can progress to a full loan approval.​

Home Loan Deposits

Most banks and lenders will require a minimum deposit of 5 per cent of the value of the property you are purchasing, before they will approve you for a home loan. Depending on the lender and your individual situation, you may be able to fund your deposit from a range of sources, including genuine savings, monetary gifts, inheritances and first home owner incentives. However, most lenders will require at least a portion of your deposit to come from genuine savings. If you don’t have the deposit required, you may be able to make use of family equity, also known as a limited guarantor loan. The most common form of family equity is where a family member, offers their existing property as security for a portion of the home loan, generally around 20 per cent.

Upgrades / New Property Buyers - Bridging Loans

Financing the move from one property to another can be quite stressful, especially if you are yet to sell your home – a bridging loan can help free up the funds that are tied up in your current property to purchase the next one. With a bridging loan, your lender will use both your current and new property as security and lend you enough to buy your new home. While you are waiting for the sale and purchase process to be completed on both your current and new property, you make interest only repayments on the loan, or maybe even no repayments at all (referred to as capitalising the interest). Once you have sold your old home, the proceeds go towards paying off your bridging loan. The amount left over (known as the end debt) is then transferred to a standard home loan, becoming the home loan on your new property.
