About John Taylor

Getting the right home loan for your circumstance first time is very important. I treat every client as if their home loan were my own, taking the time to fully understand each client's needs before recommending a particular product or home loan.

I have over 15 years experience as a mortgage broker in South-East Queensland, working with all types of borrowers and residential properties. For example, there are lots of options available for first home buyers looking to secure a place of their own. I can work with you to explore your options, help you get the right loan for you and ultimately secure your first home.The options for self-employed borrowers have become much more difficult with credit tightening. I can minimise your workload and simplify the processes by extracting the important information required for your home loan application. Having bought and sold many properties myself, as well as assisting many other investors with their property finance needs, I have the knowledge and experience to ensure that investment loans are set up correctly to maximise the benefits to investors.

First home buyers

There is still a demand from first home buyers for property, particularly in more affordable housing areas such as Forest Lake, Springfield Lakes and Camira. I look at a wide range of options for these clients; particularly with the tightening of credit policy and the fact most first home buyers generally don't have a substantial deposit. The use of family guarantees, in several instances, has meant a first home buyer has been able to secure their own home whilst reducing crippling costs such as Lenders Mortgage Insurance. I ensure each client fully understands the whole loan process and organise the First Home Owners Grant paperwork on their behalf.

John was pleasant to deal with and kept us informed every step of the way. You made the process stress free.

Investment loans

Having bought and sold numerous properties myself as well as assisting many other investors with their investment finance needs, I have an excellent understanding of the financial requirements of property investors. A lot of investors don't consider their overall position before heading into the investment market. I ensure that each client understands the importance of correctly setting up each loan to maximise any tax benefits they may receive as a result of their purchase.

Loans for self-employed buyers

The loan options for self-employed borrowers has become much more difficult with credit tightening. However, there are still numerous loan options available to these applicants. In most cases, it's just a matter of being able to extract the information required from tax returns and profit and loss reports, which allows the client to obtain a loan with the same benefits as any other normal home loan
