Using a Mortgage Broker
If you want to buy your first home or investment property, speaking to a mortgage broker is a good first step.
Here are some factors to be taken into account when determining how much you should borrow rather than how much you can:
- Probably the best way is to start with something affordable, and move towards your dream home as your personal earning capacity and equity grows.
- Think about what the future holds – both personally and financially. Are you a one or two income household and is this likely to change in the future?
- Consider how any rate rise will impact your ability to make repayments.
- Borrowing too much can be a big strain on your personal life and lifestyle. How much you can borrow and how much you should borrow may be two very different things.
Assessing your needs
First, we’ll discuss your property goals, factoring in your loan requirements in light of your lifestyle, job, family and other aspects. We’ll also discuss the type of documents needed such as pay slips, tax returns and personal bank statements.
