How Can We Help You?

Finding the right Home Loan is just as important as finding the right property!!

If buying your first home was exciting, buying your next home can be even more rewarding as it is most likely to be the property you would have liked to purchase initially, but did not have the capital to do so. Although you have been through the process before, ensuring your finance is appropriate is vital as it is most likely you are taking on more debt than you did first time around.

Your Connected Finance advisor will help you by:

  • Comparing hundreds of bank products from over 00 lenders and determining the loan that best suits your needs
  • Calculating your maximum borrowing capacity and working out your maximum purchase price based on the funds you have saved
  • Providing advice, specific to your situation, on whether you should buy before you sell or sell before you buy
  • Reviewing your position in terms of both equity and servicing ability, to determine if you can actually hold onto your first purchase and convert it to an investment property
  • Outlining all fees and charges associated with buying your next home
  • Guiding you through the process and providing advice from initial enquiry all the way through to settlement of the property and beyond

Refinance

Why Refinance?

Many people are paying too much interest on their mortgages but are unsure whether it is worth refinancing. Or they simply don’t want to go through all the hassle for the sake of what seems like a small saving.

The truth is that refinancing can mean significant savings in repayments.

Mortgage brokers also refinance loans for reasons other than lower interest rates: they might want to get better service for their clients, a more suitable loan structure, or a deal that is better suited to their client’s changed circumstances.

The main reasons to refinance to a new bank include:

  • Your situation changes and your existing structure becomes outdated
  • Better offers in the marketplace appear which can save you money and reduce your repayments
  • You wish to tap into your equity for home renovations or future investments
  • You wish to consolidate a number of debts and improve cash flow

This is where a mortgage broker can help you make this process simple. We will help you assess your financial status and negotiate the best deal that services your needs through more than 30 lenders which will ultimately offer you peace of mind.

Investment loans

Property Investing

This is the part that excites us. Purchasing property and building a property portfolio has historically been a popular way of growing wealth. Having equity in your home (difference between home value and loan outstanding) gives you an opportunity to take advantage of your most valuable asset and leveraging off it to build your wealth. But before jumping into buying the next property you like, it is important that you do your calculations properly to maximise your returns as an investor.

You need to have a sound investment strategy to guide you with your decisions. Here at TGF, we are able to help you find great options for your property investment.
