How To Negotiate With Real Estate Agents

May 6, 2019

When you deal with property transactions, you will be dealing with Real Estate Agents. This article will show you how to make real estate transaction go as smooth as possible.

The first thing to note is that the Real Estate Agent does not represent you, the Buyer – they represent the Vendor. It is in their best interest to ensure the Vendor gets the highest price possible because:
– Agents are usually paid a commission on the sale of the property
– Extracting the highest price from the Buyer, allows the Agent to attract more customers in future

How Much Can I Borrow?

Mar 27, 2019

Most borrowers often ask, how much can I borrow? This question can be answered by looking how the Banks calculate your borrowing capacity.

Every bank has their own calculator to work out your borrowing capacity. Having said that, the information that gets entered into the different calculators is largely the same. The video in this article will discuss the criteria the banks use to calculate your borrowing capacity.

The factors involved in calculating your borrowing capacity boil down to your income, your living expenses and your current liabilities.

Do You Have Genuine Savings?

Feb 25, 2019

Genuine Savings are the funds you saved yourself over a period of time. If you are considering entering the property market, you will need to be prepared to have a deposit of at least 5% of the property value in order to qualify for a home loan. This rises to at least 10% of the property value if you’re looking for an investment loan.

Having said the above, having the 5% deposit does not automatically qualify you for a home loan. Home loan applicants are required to have genuine savings, as well as the initial deposit for the loan.

Home Loan Market Update – Feb 2019

Jan 20, 2019

Another month has gone by and the RBA’s official cash rate is still sitting at 1.50%, the lowest it has ever been. The prospect of the cash rate being cut, along with stronger economic data out of other world markets have led to the Australian Dollar trading at or near 3 year lows. This will have implications for Lender’s debt financing, with a large portion of that sourced in foreign currencies and thus needing to be hedged.

With this in mind some Lenders have signalled an increase to their home loan rates. This article will run you through the latest news on the home loan as at February 2019.

Existing Customers Pay More For Their Mortgages

Dec 13, 2018

The ACCC found that existing customers pay more for their home loans. Quite a bit more in fact.

As at June 30, 2018, existing customers were paying interest rates that on average were 32 basis points higher than new customers. This is equal to more than one typical Reserve Bank rate increase.

The ACCC found a borrower with an average sized mortgage could save around $850 a year by getting the same rate as a new customer. This figure is quoted on an Australia wide basis. For a typical Sydney mortgage, the savings could add up to tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.
