Finding and submitting an application for the right home loan is the end result, but understanding finance and how you can make money work for you is my focus.

We are conditioned to view the most expensive item as being the one with the biggest price tag, but with finance this is usually turned upside down. Your most expensive loan is not always the loan you pay the most into, but it is always the loan that grows the fastest. Knowing how to manage your loans in conjunction with your overall finances is a key aspect to maintaining financial health and acquiring wealth.

With the recent leadership spill - many questions have been raised. What does it mean for Australians and the housing market? Two things come to mind…
Rates are rising, but who will join the party?

Bank or broker? Who should help you with your loan.
While there’s a lot to know when it comes to getting competitive, hassle-free advice on a loan, the question remains do you go with your bank or a mortgage broker?
