Handy Tips For Buying Your First Home
Are You Financial?
The first thing to think about when approaching your loan is your financial situation. Do you currently have outstanding debt or a high cost of living? Have you taken in to account stamp duty on top of the cost of the home? Do you have a deposit saved? All of these things can affect your financial standing when applying for a home loan. Generally speaking, deposits are a minimum of five percent, and this usually has to have been saved in your bank account for a minimum period of time.
There are alternatives though, such as pledge (or family guarantee) loans. Our lending managers can have a chat to you about the different options on 1300 555 888.
Your Employment Status
Your employment status is something that is considered when applying for any loan or line of credit. Typically you need to be working full-time, part-time, are self-employed as a sole trader or be a casual employee. You also generally need to have been working in your role for a minimum period of time.
