First Home Buyers
Australia enjoys one of the greatest home ownership rates in the world. But in a time of high house prices how do you make this great Aussie dream a reality. Buying your first home is an exciting, but big step to take and one that comes with many questions and decisions. The first big question is how much you can borrow ?
Dollar Wise Financial Services are here to help. We do all the groundwork for you. We can compare home loans across the major banks and other Australian leading lending institutions.
Being a first home buyer, you may be eligible for a first home buyer grant. This is a grant available to Australian residents or permanent residents who wish to buy or build their first home, which will be their principal place of residence within 12 months of settlement.
As grant conditions vary from state to state, contact us to find out how much grant money you could receive.
Explaining the Loan Process
Get in touch
It costs nothing to speak to your friendly and qualified mortgage broker at Dollar Wise Financial Services, who can quickly help find out how much you can borrow, which loan may suit your needs, and answer any questions about the process.
Arrange a pre-approved loan
If you haven’t started your property search, or are still looking, a pre-approved loan can be valuable. It gives you a clear picture of what you’re spending limits are and gives you peace of mind. If you find a property you really interested in you can move quickly to make an offer and could potentially put you in a stronger negotiating position than other potential buyers who don’t have pre-approval. Dollar Wise Financial Services can take care of the paperwork to lodge a loan application.
Find your property
Make sure you do plenty of homework when you’re on the hunt for a new property. Research property prices in the area, potential capital growth and existing and planned infrastructure, such as roads, public transport, schools and shops. If you’re unfamiliar with property values in the area, consider a full valuation carried out by a registered valuer before making a final decision.
Make an offer and sign a Contract of Sale
Whether you buy property at auction or make an offer on a listing, your agreement with the vendor only becomes a legal commitment when a Contract of Sale (Offer of Acceptance in WA) has been signed by both parties. This contract will confirm the selling price as well as any terms and conditions. Your commitment will usually be subject to lender approval, a building inspection report and a pest inspection.
The period from signing a Contract of Sale to Settlement – when the property becomes legally yours – is usually six weeks (shorter in some states, such as Queensland). Note: even if you have a pre-approved loan, your lender will still need to complete a valuation of the property you have chosen before issuing full approval.
Pay a Deposit
A deposit is required once a Contract of Sale has been signed by both parties (sometimes called ‘exchanging contracts.’) You won’t yet have access to your home loan, so your deposit will need to come from savings or elsewhere.
Appoint a Conveyancer
You will need a solicitor or conveyancer to check the legalities of the Contract of Sale. Your conveyancer will also check all rates and taxes have been paid, check land use or building approvals for the property and order any relevant searches. They may also help sort out any inspections.
On settlement day, the conveyancer will check the correct amount of money has been transferred from your lender to the seller and all fees – such as Stamp Duty – are paid, so you can take legal ownership of the property.
Cooling off period
If you didn’t buy your property at auction, you may have a cooling off period when you can cancel the contract, although there may be a small penalty. Cooling off periods vary from state to state so check with your relevant state authority in terms of what your rights may be.

Debt consolidation is the process of combining all of your debts into one easy to manage loan and repayment. Many people choose to use their home loan for debt consolidation because it offers a very low interest rate.
Do you have multiple credit card and/or personal loan debts in addition to your home loan? Paying high interest rates with multiple repayments making it hard to keep in front? Maybe you should consider debt consolidation.
Dollar Wise Financial Services can help you reduce your debt and feel more at ease by:
- Looking at your personal debt situation to understand what’s important to you
- Help you consolidate and reduce your debt, which may make it possible to pay off your home, other loans or credit cards sooner
- Help reduce the cost of your debt so you can spend money on things you want
- Help you simplify your debt to create more certainty for your monthly expenses
- Take the stress out of managing your loans by reducing the number of loans you have
- Create a debt reduction plan which may help you to start saving for something important to you.

Investment Property Loans
For many, once the family home is paid off - or a reasonable amount of it - they start to look at other ways of building wealth. Often their first thought is an investment property.
Purchasing an investment property is usually easier than you think, as long as you are aware of how much equity you have in your home, your comfort level with repayments and what type of investment property you want.
Dollar Wise Financial Services can help work this out for you and then set up your loan to purchase the investment property.

Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) Borrowing
Borrowing money in your superannuation fund for investment purposes is known as ‘Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangements’ (LRBA’s).
These borrowing arrangements can only be used to purchase a single acquirable asset, for example an investment property.
Dollar Wise Financial Services can help you choose the right lender and find out if your SMSF is capable of setting up a Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangement to purchase an investment property. These arrangements can be complex in nature with many rules and regulations around borrowing money inside super. They require advice from an Accredited Financial Planner and tax accountant.
Here is an example of the operation of a Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangement:
For more information on borrowing money in your SMSF or to use our mortgage broking service to set up a Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangement, please contact us.
