About Recommen Buying Home

Research Where You Desire to Live

There’s absolutely nothing even worse than going to a town, falling in love, buying a home there and 3 months later on choosing you cannot stand living there. Make sure that you know for a fact what you’re entering into when you buy a home; this includes area stats, what the surrounding areas resemble and anything else that may affect your daily life. If you are relocating to another state, make sure that you understand its financial environment, as lots of people are surprised to find out after they transfer to specific areas that there are no jobs to be had.

Do not Beat the gun

Do not buy the first home you see. Possibilities are, you’ll be taking a look at a lot of dumps, in addition to a lot of truly good locations. Making the decision can be hard, specifically when you know that there may be a preferable home simply around the corner from the one you intend on opting for. Make certain to tour enough houses so that you feel you know what you like/dislike in a home; otherwise, you might always regret your decision.

Location is a necessary element of buying a home. Consider the area that surrounds your house, and whether it is an excellent area and if it will remain there. Believe about the other areas near the area you plan to buy a home in and see if they are much better or more up-to-date.

Buying Investment Property

Find out how much you can borrow

Getting an idea of how much you can borrow is the first step to buying an investment property. It gives you a general idea of your target price range, so you can narrow your property search within your purchase budget.

Lenders will also consider the potential rental income you will get from the investment property when calculating how much you can borrow. For an indication of how much you can borrow, use our How Much Can I Borrow Calculator. To receive a free detailed assessment of your borrowing capacity talk to a Loan Market mortgage adviser today.

Calculate your loan and purchase costs

As a general rule, you will need about 5-10% deposit for an investment property purchase, however if you have existing property, you may be able to use your equity to cover more of the deposit. The criteria for deposits will differ between lenders. A Loan Market mortgage adviser will help you identify which lender will best suit your investment loan needs from a wide panel of secure banks and lenders – that’s step three but really working out your costs and loan options go together.

In addition to your deposit, you will need to consider the following costs:

Loan application fee

Valuation fees

Statutory government charges

Conveyancing and legal fees

Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) if you are borrowing more than 80% of the property value.

Investigate your investment loan options

Property investment loans are available to suit just about any investment strategy. The common loan options for property investment include:

Line of Credit loans – invest in property sooner if you already own a property. Line of credit loans tap into the existing equity you have built up in your existing property to use towards a deposit for your investment property.

Interest only loans suit investors who are focused on achieving capital growth in the short to medium term, and often go hand in hand with negative gearing.

You’ll also need to consider your loan repayment options, some property investors choose to pay interest in advance. Different repayment options will suit different investment strategies.

Property investment loans are not too different from any other type of home loan; you will need to compare rates, features, fees and charges. To discuss the competitive investment loan options available speak to a Loan Market mortgage adviser today.

Get loan pre-approval

Your investment loan pre-approval will give you a head start on other buyers by having your loan application pre-approved, as well as ensuring you shop within your budget.

A formal pre-approval works the same as a formal loan application, except without the security details. With a pre-approval, your lender will assess your income, expenditure, assets and liabilities to determine how much you can borrow, as well as assessing the documentation normally required to get full loan approval.

Be wary of any pre-approval that has many conditions attached to it. Your mortgage adviser can help you to apply for a formal pre-approval

Find a suitable property

Whether you select a residential investment property, commercial investment property, or even a holiday rental investment property there is ample opportunity to invest. Consider the following when choosing your investment property:

Location: is the property in a location that will be well-tenanted or is likely to experience property price growth?

Demographics: is the property suitable for the type of tenants in the area, e.g. low-maintenance apartments for young professionals?

Infrastructure: is there appropriate infrastructure in place, such as transport, shops, cafes and schools?

Development: is there any development planned for the area that may improve existing infrastructure, leading to possible improvements in tenancy rates or price growth?

Our advisers are also knowledgeable in the property market so if you have any questions about the investment buying or selection process, we’re here to help with that too.

Before you enter into negotiations for any place, find out if it was rented in the past: how much it was rented for, if there were any vacancy periods, how long it was vacant for, and why.

Buying your investment property

Conduct relevant searches including building and pest inspections. If you’re buying your investment property at auction you will need to complete all inspections prior to auction day.

View the contract of sale to check conditions and inclusions. Again, if you are buying at auction it is important to have your solicitor go through the contract of sale prior to making a bid.

Make an offer or bid at auction to secure your investment property purchase. Remember, you’ll need to pay a deposit if you offer or bid is accepted so be prepared to cover at least five to ten per cent of the purchase price.

You should also check that the conditions of sale you expected are included in the contract; you may want to make the sale is subject to finance and satisfactory building and pest inspections (these conditions will not apply to a sale by auction).

Finalise your investment loan approval by contacting your mortgage adviser with the details of the property. If you have loan pre-approval, full loan approval may take only a few days. Once your loan has been approved, you will receive a formal Letter of Offer that will need to be signed and returned to your lender as soon as possible.
