My job is to walk you through the mortgage process and ensure you get the right mortgage and have a financially stable future ahead of you.

You don’t need to commit this to memory, but below is an overview of what my process looks like for first time home buyers:

Meeting and Chat

Every mortgage and loan is different, so I take the time to understand you and your situation, so we can prepare the right supporting documents for the bank

Set up for Mortgage Application Success

One of the biggest parts of my job, is making sure your application is complete and attractive to the banks to approve the loan. Particularly with first time homebuyers this can be a tricky to do. Your application is custom built to highlight your individual circumstance and lending eligibility.

Summary and Action Steps

I get it, it’s a lot to remember. After our first meeting, I will send you a summary that you can refer to at any time, plus a list of the action points we need to take to get ready for the next step.

Home Ownership Budget

Indicative home ownership budgets will be presented along with quotes for homeowners’ insurance to demonstrate that the budgeting for a new home has been well thought out and established.

A Home Buyers Financial Assessment

There are several hidden costs that come with buying a home that aren’t included in mortgage payments. To ensure you are fully prepared for the transition, we do a financial assessment to compare your existing fixed costs and the added costs of a new home to ensure you have the right finances in place.

Options for Deposits

First time home buyers are in a unique situation to utilize many different options to raise funds for a deposit. This includes grants, kiwi saver, family guarantees, and much more. I will ensure no stone goes unturned to find the best deposit option for you.

First Time Home Buyers Checklist

Buying your first home and securing lending is a time sensitive process with many steps. To help keep things on track, I offer a full checklist of steps and timeframes that need to be met. You will never be unsure of where we are in the process.

This is just a brief summary to give you an idea of what the process looks like to prepare for a mortgage. If you are ready to get started or want to ask a few more questions, contact me today.

    • I gotta give a shoutout to Oliver, our mortgage broker, who absolutely killed it when it came to our mortgage application with the banks in NZ. One of us is self-employed, and we were worried about securing a mortgage as we weren't successful 18months ago with another broker. But Oliver put our minds at ease with his expertise. He was super responsive and kept us updated throughout the process and give us hope of buying our first home. He even took the time to answer all our questions (and trust me, we had a lot!). In the end, Oliver secured us the home lone with the bank and found us an amazing rate that totally exceeded our expectations. We couldn't be happier with the service he has provided. If you're looking for a mortgage broker who's professional, reliable, and just all-around awesome, then Oliver is your person. Seriously, give him a call - you won't regret it!
