First Home Buyers Jackson & Vanessa share their story

February 14, 2017

My lovely clients, Jackson & Vanessa, bought a flat off-the-plan in 2015.  

They moved in late last year and couldn't be happier.  Even puss Barney has a multi-level palace on the balcony.  

Jackson & Vanessa have kindly shared their story as first home buyers (and first mortgage hunters!) in this short video.  I hope it will be useful to some future first home buyers.

A few tips for aspiring first home buyers 

  • as a guideline, establish how much you can borrow, using this calculator 
  • aim to have saved 20% deposit + costs, to avoid LMI (savings may also come from gifts, guarantees etc)
  • keep a clean credit history
  • when you're ready to go home hunting, come to me for a home loan pre-approval, so you have confidence about how much you can spend

There's a wealth of information for First Home Buyers here.  An educated buyer is a canny buyer!

As ever, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about mortgages or any other lending.  

Cheers, Marvin Ph 0431 376 008
