Does it feel like you’ve been saving forever for your first home? Well, do we have some great news for YOU? Absolutely!

Attention FUTURE FIRST HOME BUYERS…

Have you heard about the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme (FHLDS) to support eligible first home buyers purchase a home faster?

If you meet the criteria – You Could be Saving Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars and be able to buy your dream first home sooner!

But you need to ACT FAST!

With just a 5% deposit and no lenders’ mortgage insurance (LMI)... you could welcome the new year with a new home!

But only if you are eligible – AND you are one of the first 10,000 to be approved.

The Australian Government has announced it will introduce a First Home Loan Deposit Scheme to support eligible first home buyers purchase a home faster.

Commencing on 1 January 2020, and available to only 10,000 buyers, the scheme allows eligible first-time owner-occupiers to buy their first home with just a 5% deposit and no LMI payable.

What is LMI and how does it work?

Contrary to what many people think, LMI is designed to protect the lender, not the borrower, even though the borrower pays for it.

The LMI is in place to protect the lender if the borrower can’t afford to meet their home loan repayments.

On a normal property purchase when you are required to pay LMI, it typically costs tens of thousands of dollars.

And the GOOD NEWS For YOU…

Under this First Home Loan Deposit Scheme, there is NO LMI payable.

It has never been so easy to make your first home dreams come true.
 
Are you eligible1?
  • You are an Australian citizen (not available for permanent residents)
  • You are a genuine First Home Buyer (if you own an investment property you won’t be eligible)
  • You have a 5% deposit. You will still need to borrow the remaining 95% but you will avoid paying LMI.
  • You earn less than $125,000 a year as a single or $200,000 combined for couples
IF you meet these criteria you need to contact us FAST!
 
Other details:
  • Finance can only be for owner-occupier loans with principal and interest payments
  • The scheme began on 1 January 2020 and is limited to 10,000 borrowers per year – so act soon!
  • The value of eligible homes under the scheme varies by state, city and region. See table below.

4 URGENT Tips To Beat The First Home Buyer Rush

1. Be prepared
Having all your records up to date and accessible is essential.
 
Ensure you have your:
  • identification
  • proof of employment
  • savings history 
  • evidence of current assets and
  • statements of all debt
This will make the application process a lot faster.

2. Minimise your spending NOW!
While it may be too late to put the brakes on your spending, those who can demonstrate good budgeting and financial discipline will have a far greater chance of
nabbing one of the 10,000 schemes on offer.

3. Clean up your credit – NOW!
Even if you have a credit card with zero balance, lenders will see there is always a chance for you to dive into debt up to your credit limit.
So close down or reduce your credit limits where you can. That includes buy now, pay later options!
The more ‘available’ credit you have access to, the less you will be able to borrow.

4. Stay in your current job
Those who can show a strong and consistent employment history will stand a better chance of approval.
If you have started a new job recently, you will need to wait until your probationary period is complete and may miss out on the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme.
