DID YOU KNOW ???????????

  • some lenders will advance the $20,000 construction First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) at land settlement stage. This greatly resolves the problem of funding the land purchase and government stamp duty at land settlement stage. Most lenders will only advance the Grant after the house has reached slab stage.
  • some lenders will approve “low doc” loans for self-employed borrowers up to 80% of valuation using only bank trading statements or an Accountant’s verification letter . Most banks require official ATO BAS statements.
  • loans are available to build up to 4 units on a single Title at residential loan rates, not commercial rates.
  • some lenders will approve 95% loans and add the full 3.5% mortgage insurance premium to the loan i.e. total approved loan is 98.5%. Other lenders will limit the addition of the mortgage insurance premium so that the total loan does not exceed 97%. Borrowers must pay the difference of 1.5% in cash from savings.
  • 100% finance is available to First Home Buyers using a 95% loan, a secured $20,000 credit card advance and the FHOG. Strong income and other conditions apply. 100% finance is also available using a Parental Guarantee loan.
