Pre-approval, or conditional approval, is when you approach a lender when looking to buy a home and ask them to pre-approve you to borrow a certain amount.For example, the lender might provide an offer for a loan of $500,000, meaning you can borrow up to that amount. This can give you a good indication of whether you’ll be successful in applying for a loan or not, while also narrowing your search for houses in that price range.It is important to know that a pre-approval is not a guaranteed loan approval! It is however a strong indicator that you are likely to be fully approved for a loan. A guaranteed loan approval requires further detail to be submitted, such as a full credit check and supporting evidence.
It can depend on the value of the property, the repayments you can afford and the lender you choose to go with.
Generally, if you’re buying your own house you will need to deposit at least 20% of the value of the property to avoid paying for Lender’s Mortgage Insurance or LMI, however, a 10% deposit will usually still allow you to secure a loan.
The First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) is available to Australian citizens or permanent residents who wish to buy or build their first home. The property needs to be the buyer's principal place of residence within 12 months of settlement. Contact us directly to find out more about eligibility requirements in your state and how much grant money you might receive.
Stamp duty is an upfront cost you’ll have to pay when buying a property (in most cases). Stamp duty is a tax imposed by all state and territory governments in Australia and covers the cost of transferring the title of the property to your name.
As a general rule, the more expensive the property, the more expensive stamp duty will be. Stamp duty concessions for first home buyers can make buying a home much cheaper, but these concessions only apply in certain situations.
