Buying your first home is an experience that you will never forget. From looking through properties to finding the right one and purchasing it, there are so many different steps and caveats that you will need to consider. During this time, having a trusted mortgage broker by your side can help shape your experience and can save you from taking on risks and inconveniences. Getting advice from a lending expert will help turn an overwhelming endeavour into a stress-free and fulfilling one.

Supporting First Home Buyers in their Journey to Home Ownership

From the first moment you contact your Lendstreet mortgage broker, they will be there to listen to your requirements and situation. Through those early conversations, they develop a strong understanding of your position so as to support you better.

The first thing that your mortgage broker will do is shed some light on the entire process. This will help you develop a more realistic picture of your loanable amount, the type of loan you should pursue, available loan products and the lenders who offer them, terms, interest rates, and other fees involved. Your mortgage broker will also begin organising all of your paperwork that will be necessary for pre-approval. When you get pre-approved, you gain leverage when making your offer towards your desired home.

With your pre-approval in hand and the new house of your dreams available, you will want to ensure that you meet some prerequisites set forth by lenders.

Lender Requirements

The lender requirements are a list of details that you will be asked to present when seeking a home loan. Having a mortgage broker that can prepare you for what you need is beneficial and can make getting pre-approved a lot quicker and easier. Most lenders will request that you have the following document and savings to jumpstart your home loan application:

Incentives for First Home Buyers

In Australia, there are many different incentives available for those looking to purchase their first home. One of the biggest schemes available to future homeowners is the First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) which provides qualified applicants with a $10,000 grant for their new home. First home buyers may also be eligible to get a stamp duty waiver or concession depending on the value of their home. These can be a big help with saving for the deposit and the closing costs as they can help reduce the amount that a home buyer will need to save up.

You found your home. What's next?

The excitement of owning your first property may be enticing for you to make an offer on a house quickly. When you have finally acquired funding, it is now time to check the property’s value by making careful comparisons of similar properties in the market. At this point, you might also want to request a property report, suburb profile report, and building and pest inspection report. List down your question about your desired property and make sure that they are answered satisfactorily by your real estate agent. This is the time to clarify all information about your dream home. Throughout all of this, your mortgage broker will be ready to support and provide more advice as you prepare to take the big leap towards your very first purchase.

But your journey with Lendstreet will not end upon reaching loan settlement. We will always be one call away just in case you need additional assistance in the future.
