First time buyers do not have it easy in today’s housing market. The excitement of buying your first home can often become daunting with the idea of applying for a mortgage.

The purpose of re-mortgaging your home is to get a better rate than what you are paying now. When you first took out your mortgage the offer was most likely at a lower rate than what it is now. Mortgage lenders will often give new clients an attractive deal. However, this usually increases over the years and you end up paying a lot more than you should.
Don’t worry, this does not have to be the case! When you re-mortgage your home you switch to a different lender which gives more affordable rates and in turn you have a happier pocket. We research the many different mortgage lenders so you don’t have to. We give you a summary of your options and the advantage of switching to a cheaper lender.
In a lot of cases, first time buyers often buy a home suited for a 3 person family. However, as their families grow it seems necessary to move into a larger home. This is known as ‘trading up’. The term ‘trading down’ is when you with to buy a smaller home because you current home is too large, because either your kids have flown the nest. Or perhaps your home is too big for you. When trading up and down, it is necessary to understand the market and sell your home for the best price you can get.
However, negative equity can often occur when the mortgage on your current home is worth more than your house, meaning if you sell your home it won’t cover your mortgages’ full value. This is not something you should worry about!
With the help of our financial advisors we will guide and support you in finding a mortgage suited to you for your larger or smaller home, even with negative equity!
You may top up your mortgage if you want to do some refurbishments or extensions on your current home. To get a top up you have to know the current debts you may owe and the worth of your home. Your home lender need this information so they can understand your ability in paying back the increased mortgage. We can help you gather these documents necessary for the mortgage top up process. We will also advise you on the how much of a top-up you need in order to complete the renovations for your home.

Don’t forget, using a broker will not cost you any more, but will ensure you get the most appropriate offering rather than going directly to one particular bank. For example one lender may be great dealing with two regular salaries whereas a completely different lender will work more effectively with your self employed and rental income.
