We don't charge you for our home loan service

Don't worry, all our advice, experience and expertise is available to you for free. This is possible because the lender you choose will pay us a commission after your home loan settles. And no, that doesn't influence our home loan services at all. We are paid the same commission no matter what lender you go with.

There are a range of incentives available that can get you into your first home sooner. You may qualify for: The First Home Owner Grant, Stamp Duty Concessions, The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme, the First Home Super Saver Scheme, and more.

If trying to work out what incentives you qualify for is a bit confusing and daunting, don't worry. At Mortgage Choice, we will work all that out for you.

Using a guarantor

A guarantor on a home loan is the person who provides additional security for your home loan. Your guarantor will not be paying any money towards the mortgage, they are just providing extra security to the lender should you fall behind on repayments.

Most lenders prefer the guarantor to be a close relative - often a parent, grandparent or sibling. A guarantor is used to reduce the size of deposit required and for avoiding Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI), meaning you can get into your first home faster.
