Frequently asked questions:

Being informed and aware of all the added costs involved, as well as what the many acronyms mean in the home loan process, can greatly reduce your stress and give you the confidence to negotiate for the right price. Here are a few questions that we are commonly asked:

What is LMI? – LMI stands for Lenders Mortgage Insurance. This insurance is something you have to pay to insure the lenders. A bank is taking a chance when they loan you money and most people pay back their loans, but this gives the bank an extra incentive to loan you money.

What is LVR? – This is the Loan Valuation Ratio. It is a simple ratio of the mortgage amount over the value of the property. So, if you want to borrow $400,000 for a $500,000 house you will have an LVR of 80%. If this number is under 80% you will not have to pay LMI. We can work with you to determine what fees you need to pay and with a little tweaking, you may be paying less.

If your LVR is over 80% of the property price you have to pay LMI. When using a calculator it’s important to keep in mind these numbers are estimates as every lender may have different rates – that’s where Mortgage Choice in Inner North Brisbane can really help you, as a mortgage broker we can guide you through this tricky process.

How much is Stamp Duty? – Here’s a quick tip: in Queensland there is a stamp duty concession for first home buyers. The concession is that you will not have to pay as much stamp duty if you borrow under $505,000 for a home loan. This can save you up to $8750 in stamp duty.

I originally went to a broker who put through one application for me, it was declined and that was it. He was done with me.

We were very happy with the service we received from Mortgage Choice. From our initial enquiry till finalizing our loan we could not have been happier. All members of the team were extremely helpful and friendly and were only ever a phone call away when we needed advise.

The support from the team at all stages was great and responsive to the timelines I needed to work within for a fast settlement. It took a lot of the stress out of the situation which as a first home owner I really appreciated! Thank you!

Andrew Whelan has gone over and above, finding us the perfect mortgage loan to perfectly suit our needs, and has been nothing but a godsend during what was a very difficult time consuming process under our specific circumstances. If we didn't have Andrew in our corner I really don't think we would have gotten over the line.
To any prospective purchasers out there that are looking for a mortgage broker... stop looking. You have found him!
