First Home Buyers
Buying your first property is probably the most important decision in your life. However, finding a home loan that suits your lifestyle is just as important as choosing the property itself.
At Carroll Finance, we help first home buyers prepare themselves for the property market by guiding you through the complete home loan process, including First Home Owner’s Grant.
Furthermore, some of our lenders will allow clients that are purchasing a property to borrow up to 99.9% of its value including lenders mortgage insurance (LMI). This is ideal for those who have limited funds available for the deposit and costs associated with buying a property such as stamp duty and legal fees. It is also ideal for those who are not wanting to or are unable to go down the route of a guarantor loan.
One of the most rewarding experiences as a broker is helping customers into their first home. If you’re a first home buyer looking for finance, contact our team today to discuss your options.

With all time historic low interest rates, it’s worth giving me a call to understand how I can help you save money
Getting a better deal on your loan.
Do you know the interest rate you are being charged on your mortgage? Have you stopped to consider how it compares to the current interest rate on similar products?Refinancing your loan could give you access to a more competitive interest rate, especially if you have had a home loan for a few years. Interest rates are currently sitting at historic lows, so, if your interest rate doesn’t have a 2 in front of it, you may be paying too much.If you are unsure if you should refinance, we have listed a few reasons why people refinance below.
Refinancing, or switching home loans, can save you money.
It can also free up cash for renovations, investment property and other purchases. We can help you work out if it’s the best option for you and, if so, arrange the home loan that suits your needs.
- Why refinance?
Home loan refinancing can mean securing a loan that better suits your needs today. First, it’s important to consider your goals and reasons.
- Secure a competitive interest rate
Refinancing to a home loan that offers a lower interest rate can reduce your monthly repayments. You’ll need to weigh up any costs involved for switching loans.
- Move between variable and fixed rates
With a fixed rate, you know what you’re up for over a period of time. However, when interest rates are low, you may want to take advantage of a variable rate and accept the risk that rates can rise in the future.
- Access equity in your home
Equity is the difference between the market value of your home and the amount you still owe on your loan. With some loans you can access this money to grow your wealth, buy investments or use for personal goals.
- Consolidate your debt
Home loan interest rates are usually much lower than interest you’d pay on credit cards, car loans and personal loans. Bringing them together in one lower interest rate loan might save you on payments, fees and time spent juggling and managing your debt.
- Refinancing costs
As with any new loan, there are costs involved in changing loans. It’s important to weigh up what you’ll need to pay out against all the benefits of refinancing your home loan.
Investment loans are structured in a specific way that allows you to make the most of your assets! An investment plan is one that works toward building your wealth and securing your financial freedom. For some, the future may seem a long way off, but the time to act is now because the future waits for no one. The housing market is generally a seven to ten year cycle: there are always highs, lows and steady patches.
It seems obvious, but before you start signing any contracts or commence with your build, it is crucial to first understand how much you can borrow and how you will be able to manage all associated costs of the development.
While financing a construction project can feel like a daunting process for both new and sophisticated investors, having a mortgage broker by your side can make the process easier.
Low Doc Loans
