First home loan options

I'm just Dreaming

Living your dream is easy

Buying your first home is an exciting experience. It's also one of the biggest commitments you'll ever make.

Realising a major life dream like buying property is a lot easier with the support of people who've been there before you.

Come in and chat to one of Tassie Home Loans' experienced and accredited mortgage consultants. We're here to guide you through the whole process of buying your home, to make it as simple and clear as possible.

The benefits of owning your home

Owning your own home brings many wonderful financial and personal benefits.

There's the advantage of replacing rent payments with a tangible investment in a property of your own. As your property increases in value, so will your financial security, independence, savings and tax benefits. Building equity in your property can also provide the finance for other investments or create savings to help fund your retirement.

Then there are the personal benefits--a place you can call your own, a secure environment for you and your family, and a house you can adapt to fit your personality and lifestyle.

The responsibilities of buying a home

To decide if home ownership is for you, it's important to understand the risks and responsibilities of buying a home, as well as the benefits.

Buying a property will mean a significant financial commitment, so think about the effect this will have on your disposable income and your lifestyle. Most loan periods are between 25 and 30 years and you need to be sure you can service your loan payments and manage any increases in interest rates.

In the early years of owning your home, when your equity is low, the financial advantages to you are small. But as your equity increases, the balance will swing heavily in your favour.

Some questions to ask yourself:

  • Can I save for a deposit?
  • How much can I borrow?
  • Can I afford the home loan repayments?
  • What level of home loan repayment can I afford if interest rates increase?
  • Can I meet the costs of buying a home--stamp duty, legal fees, home loan application fees, valuation fees, insurance premiums and other expenses?
  • Can I meet the ongoing costs of home ownership, like home maintenance, land tax and council rates?

When you speak with one of our mortgage consultants, we'll help you to understand all the benefits and responsibilities of owning your first home, to make this great experience as smooth and exciting as it should be.

"I would like to thank Tassie Home Loans, in particular Jason Smyth for the excellent service during the purchase of our new home and the follow up calls to ensure we were completely satisfied with the package we received. Jason was able to negotiate with the Big 4 to provide us with rates that the Big 4 were not offering when applying to them directly. Well done Jason and Tassie Home Loans for extending real customer service that all others don’t. You have my recommendation!!!! If you want to save $$$$$ talk to Tassie Home Loans!"
