Buy a new home

Buying a new home is an exciting journey, but it can also be a daunting task. One of the most significant steps in the process is securing a home loan. A home loan is a type of loan specifically designed to help you purchase a property. It allows you to borrow the funds you need to buy a home, and you can then pay back the loan over time, usually with interest.

What is an interest rate?
An interest rate is the amount of money that is charged by a lender on top of the amount that you borrow, which is calculated as a percentage of the loan. The interest rate is usually determined by factors such as your credit score and the current market conditions.
Can I borrow 100% of the property price?
In most cases, you will need to have a deposit saved up in order to secure a home loan. Lenders typically require a minimum deposit of 5-20% of the property price. However, there are some circumstances where you may be able to borrow up to 100% of the property price, such as with a guarantor loan. It's important to speak with a mortgage broker to discuss your options and find the best solution for your individual circumstances.
Are all loan products the same?
No, not all loans products are the same. Different lenders offer different features, fees and interest rates, and they may have different criteria for assessing your application. It's important to compare loans from different lenders to find the one that suits your needs and budget. As a mortgage broker, Smart Mortgage can help you compare loan products and find the right one for you.

Variable rate
A variable rate interest loan is a loan where the interest rate can change over the life of the loan. This means that the interest rate you pay on your loan can increase or decrease depending on market conditions and the policies of the lender. If interest rates rise, your repayments will increase, and if interest rates fall, your repayments will decrease.

Anh Pham
Manager at Queensland Soy Factory
I have dealt with Smart Mortgage for many years. There have been a few properties I have bought and sold over this period. Angela Duong is the person I have dealt with for my home loans. I have known Angela for over 10 years and have always found her and the staff at Smart Mortgage to provide outstanding services. Buying and selling houses are some of the most stressful things a person can go through in life. Knowing that Smart Mortgage are very professional and committed to the complete process from start to finish is a great relief.
