When Should I Find a Credit Advisor (mortgage broker)?

August 16, 2016

 

Saving for a home? If you haven’t met with a credit adviser yet, you’re doing it wrong. Here’s why.

 

When saving a deposit to buy a home, many people have a goal amount in mind that they need to save before they meet with a credit advisor who will help them secure the finance.

 

If this is you, you’re doing it wrong. From day one, when you first think ‘I could maybe buy a house if I worked hard and saved a lot’, you’re ready to have a credit adviser on your side.

 

A credit advisor's knowledge of the loan and property market will help you work out how much you will be able to borrow, which determines the size of the deposit you will need to save.

 

They will also be able to help you develop a realistic timeline to save your deposit and find ways to pay down debts faster, and provide creative solutions that will help reach your goals sooner.

 

You may also be pleasantly surprised to find that you are closer to your goal than you thought. The tools in a credit advisor's belt that can help you realise your dreams more quickly and efficiently include lender’s mortgage insurance, specialist lending products, land loans and, for investors predicting significant rises in property prices, interest-only loans.

 

More importantly than just being allowed to provide these products, a credit advisor can help you work out whether they suit your situation and goals. For example, while buying land now to build on later lowers the cost of your initial investment and can be an opportunity to take advantage of a dip in land prices, there is no point in it if you will not be able to secure construction finance down the track.

So speak to an expert now. Give LadyBird Home Loans a call and take the first steps to owning your home.
