There’s a lot to know when buying your first home
When you’re caught up in the excitement of buying a home, the last thing you need is sleepless nights worrying about mortgage approval and whether you got all the numbers right!
We created the First Home Buyer course to give you all the information you need to get into your first home.
Be Prepared – Buy Sooner
We’ve put together all the key information you need to know to get approved for your first mortgage.
Some of the things you’ll learn in this course are:
- what counts as a deposit (and what doesn’t!)
- what to do if you don’t have a 20% deposit
- proving your salary whether you’re self-employed or an employee
- how to increase your assessable income
- how to handle your KiwiSaver pre-purchase
- exactly how much Credit Cards affect your income
- all about apartments, existing homes and newly constructed homes
- how much mortgage to ask for
And much, much more!
Not sure whether now’s the right time?
Imagine being able to buy a house years ahead of when you expected to be able to. If houses continue to grow at their current rate, you could save over $100,000 on the purchase price by buying 2-3 years earlier.
You may be ready to buy sooner than you think.
Now is always the best time to get all your ducks in a row.
Hi, my name is Rupert Gough and I’m the founder and CEO of The Mortgage Lab, regular contributor to OneRoof and the author of “The Successful First Home Buyer”. I live in Tauranga with my wife and daughter.
Over the year, I’ve worked with hundreds of first home buyers to get them into their first home. The journey from application to purchase is amazing and something I truly love.
I created this course with the hope to educate an even greater number of first home buyers, like yourself. To have them ready to apply for a mortgage and into their first home sooner than they ever felt possible.
