Can you get KiwiSaver help?
When you are buying your first home, one of the first things to confirm is whether you have access to KiwiSaver and/or a HomeStart Grant. We have a range of articles spelling out everything you need to know about these options. The use of your KiwiSaver increases your deposit, which can make borrowing significantly easier and cheaper.
Don’t forget: for all questions, you can always contact your local mortgage broker directly. It only takes 2 minutes to call the adviser and you will have an answer immediately.
Banks all have different policies and risk tolerances. This can be frustrating for first home buyers because going to a bank that doesn’t suit them means a lot of wasted time.
But using a mortgage broker means a view over all the banks and all their policies. It means getting to the right bank faster and with less stress. Getting a mortgage isn’t complicated, it’s about proving you have enough deposit and enough income and then heading to the right bank with that information.
Some tips to making your mortgage application easier: get your documentation sorted early and keep your spending as low as possible in the 3 months leading up to your application.
The First Home Grant is a Kainga Ora cash grant designed to help lower-income purchasers buy lower-priced houses. There is a maximum amount of income that you can earn and a maximum purchase price that you can pay to be eligible for the grant. Here’s an article that we wrote on the First Home Grant.
You will want to apply for the grant early as it takes time to process.
