Loans for First Time Buyers

Introduction

Becoming a homeowner has been the dream of most Australians for generations.

Today’s first homebuyers not only have access to more information and expertise but also to a variety of different loan products to help them achieve that dream.

Plus, more and more first-time buyers are becoming investors before they own a home.

First homebuyers are a vital cog in the real estate wheel and they can become property owners with the right advice and expert assistance.

Rentvesting vs. buying a home

A new first-time buyer investment strategy is the concept of rentvesting.

Rentvesting involves buying an investment property but continuing to rent in the location of your choice.

This strategy has a number of positives, including investing sooner rather than later; renting in locations that first-time buyers probably can’t afford to buy; and growing equity in income-producing assets which can be used to invest again or to buy a home down the line.

By adopting a rentvesting strategy, first-time buyers can start their property investment journey sooner, which will have long-term financial benefits for them.

What you need to know about guarantees

One of the most popular first-time buyer home loan products is a guarantor loan.

The reason for their popularity is simple – saving a deposit for your first property has always been difficult.

However, as the name suggests, this type of loan uses a guarantee from another party – usually mum and dad – that acts as the deposit.

Parents often use equity from their own homes or portfolios to guarantee the entire, or a percentage, of the deposit for their children.

That way, first-time buyers can not only purchase a property more quickly, they may also avoid Lenders Mortgage Insurance, too.
