Don’t leave anything to chance when it comes to comparing low-interest home loans and getting the best deal. Savvy helps home buyers connect with licenced, fully-approved home loan specialists all over Australia. Get advice about different home loan features, discuss your plans and save money by talking with a local mortgage broker before you buy.

Why is a Savvy mortgage broker better than my bank?

Mortgage brokers can show you many more rates and products than one or a couple of lenders or banks – but that’s not all they do.

In practice, a local mortgage broker can target more products and features depending on your aims and finances – but crucially, they can explain different products and options in your own specific context. Let’s look at a couple of possible scenarios:

  1. Let’s say you’re about to buy a new home because the family has grown. That means a deposit may not be an issue, but you could have some spare equity too. A broker’s job is to consider your whole situation, not just to get you in a new home. You might be better off avoiding fixed-rate repayments, so you can instead access your equity with a variable interest rate by using a redraw facility. That gives you more scope to widen your search, including houses that need a new kitchen or some landscaping, and prioritise your must-haves, like being within walking distance to school, for example.
  2. Every home buyer is different, and your own situation might require an entirely different approach. Talking to a Savvy broker just ensures you know about all the mortgage features available, where you can reduce costs, and how to make the most of the money or equity you’re working with. Another home buyer might have savings they can use to pay off their mortgage quicker, using an offset account in combination with split-rate repayments, rather than letting that money languish in a savings account with a low interest rate.

There isn’t a typical buyer, and with a local mortgage broker, there’s no shortage of unique and innovative, cost-saving features and home loan solutions either.

How do mortgage brokers work for local investors?

Rockhampton is teeming with opportunities for investors. The city has everything families and singles could want, from an airport to a thriving commercial centre, plus it’s only minutes from the beach. Despite all that, investors can still pick up units for well under $200,000 on average – and get rewarded with a whopping yield over 8%, with an expected weekly rental income of around $270. If you’re new to investing or just want to expand your portfolio, a Savvy mortgage broker can help you use the equity in an existing property to buy a second home. Depending on your aims and exit strategy, brokers can help find cost-effective, tax-friendly features like interest-only repayments – and you can access a wide range of options if you need to refinance an investment property.

How do mortgage brokers help first-time buyers?

It can be challenging to get your first foot on the property ladder, but a Savvy mortgage broker is a great way to start. They offer an advantage over national lenders and banks because they know the specific requirements and incentives available for first-time buyers in Queensland inside-out.

Our brokers are ideal for assessing eligibility for first home owner grants (which differ from state to state) and finding you low-deposit mortgages. They can also access a range of solutions designed to allow your family to help you buy a home – like guarantor home loans and family pledge mortgages.
