First Time Buyers

Buying your first home will be one of the most important decisions you will ever make, both emotionally and financially. I help many buyers purchase their first property.

The amount you can borrow is based on your salary, savings and credit history.  In general, a mortgage of up to 4 times your gross annual income (combined income for joint applicants) is available to first-time buyers.  First-time buyers can typically borrow up to 90% of the property value.


By switching your mortgage to an alternative lender, you can reduce your monthly payments by benefitting from a lower interest rate with the new lender.

You will have a choice of moving to a a fixed or variable mortgage rate to suit your circumstances.

As your circumstances change, so can your mortgage. We are here to do the work for you, so all you need to worry about is where to invest your savings.
