The steps to buying your first home! Mortgage Brokers in Frankston
  • Budget & Save
    Plan your budget to see how much you can afford to repay, and set a plan to start saving for a deposit.

  • Establish your capacity
    Meet with our team of brokers from Mortgage Choice Frankston & Langwarrin to discuss your finance options and work out how much you can borrow

  • Choose your loan & lender
    Work with us to select the right loan for you and request loan pre-approval. As your mortgage broker, we will take care of the application and paperwork.

  • Operation dream home
    Let the fun commence! You now get to search for your new home, safe in the knowledge of how much you can afford to spend.

  • Assess and inspect
    Organise building and pest or strata inspection on the home of your choice.

  • Make an offer 
    To buy through a real estate agent, make an offer and begin negotiating on price. To buy at auction, place a bid and hold your nerve!

  • Sign & exchange contracts
    Once an offer has been accepted, contracts are signed and exchanged. At this stage, you will pay your deposit, usually 10% of the purchase price.

  • Cool off
    You now have a few days to change your mind about the purchase. If you back out, you may forfeit some of your deposit. There are regional differences in cooling-off periods, and if you have bought at auction, you won’t have the option. Auction purchases are final!

  • Settle & celebrate
    Settlement usually occurs four to six weeks following the exchange of contracts. The keys are handed over, and you are officially a home owner!
