What are the key differences between first home loans and occupier loans?

First home loans are tailored for those purchasing their first property, and they often come with benefits like lower deposit requirements. Occupier loans are exclusively for individuals who will live in the property, rather than individuals looking to buy an investment property as a source of rental income. Our advisors guide you with personalised advice to help you make informed decisions and secure the right loan for your unique situation and goals.

What factors do you consider in determining which loan is best for my needs?

To assist you in determining which loan is best for your needs, our advisors will assess your current financial situation, goals, income stability, and credit history. Your preferences, like fixed or variable rates, will also be considered. Our experts will then recommend a loan that aligns with your unique circumstances, ensuring you secure financing that suits your short and long-term objectives.

How much money can I borrow to buy a home?

The amount you can borrow to buy a home depends on factors such as your income, credit score, and existing debt. Lenders will also consider factors like the size of your deposit and the value of the property. Our advisors evaluate these variables to provide a clear picture of your borrowing capacity and help you understand how much you can borrow and how much you can afford to spend on a home.

What makes commercial loans different from personal loans?

Commercial loans are for business purposes exclusively, like expanding or purchasing property, while personal loans cater to individual needs. Commercial loans often require business financials for approval, and the terms can vary based on business prospects.
