Home Loans in Annandale
If you want to secure your dream home in the leafy inner Sydney suburb of Annandale you need to be ready to buy and ready to act. The wide streets, good schools and access to the city make it one of the tightest held suburbs in the inner city. On average, houses are held for 10 years and so when they do hit the market, they sell quickly.1
If your heart is set on a house, the current median value in Annandale is $1,900,0002 and this poses a barrier to those who may only have a small deposit saved. However, there are still options to consider – for example, the Mortgage Choice team in Annandale can show you how a guarantor can help remove this barrier and still give you a home loan packed with features and at competitive interest rates. Other key features that will help you become debt free faster are having an integrated redraw facility and a loan that permits both variable and fixed interest rates.
In recent years Annandale’s harbour foreshore parks and light rail connections have already seen the redevelopment of the close by Harold Park Paceway into a vibrant living quarter incorporating the Tramsheds dining precinct.
The revitalising of the Parramatta Road corridor has spawned some exciting new projects and there are currently 5 apartment projects either commenced or in the planning approval stage.3 This is great news for those looking to buy into the area and who prefer apartment living with close proximity to the CBD. The median value for apartments is $841,2504 making it a more affordable option for First Home Buyers and a lifestyle opportunity for downsizers.
How to apply for a home loan in Annandale
The first, and most important, part of the process is to understand your circumstances and what you are trying to achieve in a way that opens the path to selecting the right lender and the right combination of lender products that will suit your immediate requirements and still be relevant for several years to come.
At Mortgage Choice in Annandale, we do this by collecting some background financial information from you and then scheduling a 45-minute, face to face or online, meeting.
