Information that you will find useful

When it comes to lending, especially if you are a first-time buyer, you may overlook certain details and steps that could have made your borrowing experience simpler and cheaper. We are here to help you take the best route on your financial journey.

Placing the perfect deposit

Especially if you are a first-time buyer, saving for a deposit can be difficult. Most lenders require a twenty percent deposit which means twenty percent of the current property value. Some lenders will allow up to ten percent for first-time buyers. However, the larger the deposit you make, the faster you will repay your mortgage and the less interest you will accrue. New Zealand has schemes like KiwiSaver and Home-Start Grant that can assist you to make the deposit on your dream home.

An adviser to put you at ease

Our website has a list of trusted and knowledgeable mortgage brokers in various areas in New Zealand. If you are struggling to decide which lender is the right choice for your circumstances, do not suffer in silence - a broker can help you. Most of the time you will not even be required to pay a fee since the broker obtains a commission from the lender you decide to borrow from.
