Buying your home can be an exciting yet overwhelming experience, not to mention a big financial commitment.
First Home Buyers
First of all, congratulations! If you are like most first home buyers you are excited about getting your foot in the door of your own home. You may also be a little uncertain of how the lending process works and don’t want to make the wrong decision. If so, you have arrived at the right place.
Refinancing your current home loan is a good idea if you want to lower your monthly repayments, access existing equity in your home loan or to consolidate debt.
A good investment loan can make property investment a much smoother process. Investment loans vary depending on what you are looking to achieve, and can be either very simple (like your standard home loan), or something more complex that helps you to make effective use of tax, gearing and repayments.
Many Australians enjoy the freedom of working for themselves, but being self-employed means time is of the essence, and getting finance whether it be for a home or your business isn’t always easy. That is where I can help.

Is March a buyer’s month? To delay or act, that is the question
I’ve read plenty over the years about the “best time to sell” for homeowners in Australia, and that got me thinking. When’s the best time for buyers? When is the market less competitive on the bidder-front? When are prices likely to be more affordable? And how much does supply of real estate stock play a part? Is there such a thing as a buyer’s month? Turns out there is. And it’s probably now.
We’re starting later, it’s costing more - is the property dream unreachable in 2020?
Once upon a time, let’s call it the 80s, the average Australian would buy their first home at the age of 24. Here we are, three decades later, and buying property doesn’t occur until we’re 35. Why is that? Is it thanks to the price of housing in our popular cities, and the militant discipline required to save a gigantic deposit? Or is it that we’ve decided to ‘live a little’ in our twenties, choosing renting and share-housing over striving to attain our first property asset? And is property still the asset class it used to be? Let’s discuss.
