What is First Home Buyer?

A first home buyer loan (aka first-time buyers’ mortgages) is a specific type of mortgage designed to assist individuals like you in purchasing their very first property.

These loans often come with attractive features such as lower interest rates, flexible repayment options, and various government-backed incentives to make homeownership more accessible to newbies. But who is eligible? Do you qualify for a mortgage for first-time buyers?

Who is Eligible?

To qualify for a first home buyer loan in NSW, you’ll typically need to meet the following criteria:

  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Be at least 18-years old.
  • Not have previously owned a property in Australia (excluding some exceptions – contact us for more details).
  • Intend to occupy the purchased property as your principal place of residence.

    Assuming you meet the above criteria, first-time buyers mortgages should be on the cards for you. Now it’s just a question of finding the right mortgage for first-time buyers – and indeed the best first home specialists to assist you.

What Are the Different Types of First Home Buyer Loans?

Now that you understand the basics, let’s explore the various types of home loan options. Here are some examples of what you can get through a first-home buyer mortgage broker in NSW:

  • Variable Rate Loans: These loans offer interest rates that can fluctuate over time. Variable rates can be lower than fixed rates initially, but they also carry the risk of increasing in the future.
  • Fixed Rate Loans: With a fixed-rate loan, your interest rate is locked in for a specific period of time (e.g., 1, 2, or 5-years). This provides greater stability and allows you to budget more effectively.
  • Construction Loans: If you’re building your dream home from scratch, a construction loan can be a viable option. This loan disburses funds progressively as the various construction milestones are reached and you come closer to moving into your dream property.
  • Split Loans: Split loans allow you to combine a fixed-rate loan for a portion of the loan amount with a variable-rate loan for the rest. This offers an attractive balance between stability and potential savings.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
