To want extend you have to listen to your close friend or family members while finalising your property or home loan?

Has your friend recently bought a property and you are taking advice from him/her?  Thinking s/he know all? Common, your friend is having a feeling of getting 8 packs after walking out of Gym for the first day or the same feelings like a superhero after walking out of a theater watching spider man or recently released Salman Khan’s Sultan!

I highly recommend everyone to go and talk to your close once, while seeking or before finalising a property but please do not blindly or 100% trust them by understimulating some experts advice. I am not saying you’re close once will give you wrong advice either but the advise they are giving might not be suitable for you. In short, I have written few points below please go through them why you should not blindly trust them ( we will discuss in details while meeting ).

Please match:

a) Your income and their income

b) Your deposit amount and their deposit amount.

c) Your current job & location AND their.

d) Your number of family members and their

e) Your future plans and their

f)  Your expensive patterns and their

g) Your Liabilities and their

h) Your credit file condition and their.

If above all points are almost same then perhaps you can make a joint decision.

I am writing this from my personal experience. Recently 2 friends bought off the plan unit in Lidcombe. Sad thing is that one friend can easily settle(this is good) BUT  other has decided to put it back on the market for resell because he could not get finance because of 3-4 reasons, at last, they approached me but i also had to say, ” i wish i could do something for you but I am extremely sorry”. 

Note: if you have bought off the plan please start your loan preparation, at least 2 months ahead.

Disclaimer: This is just our thoughts and personal experiences, it might not be happened or suit every individual. Please take this as a general information and seek professional and proper advice.

Good to know : What determines your bank & home loan interest rates? #LaxmiHomeLoans

www.laxmihomeloans.com.auIf you have any question with your interest rate please go through following points and let us know if you have any proof that you have been charged more (our existing clients), we will discuss with the bank. Sometimes we just look interest rates by ignoring all other important associated factors which actually determines our interest rates.

There are many factors to consider but following four points are the main key factors which determine interest rates.

1. What is his/her deposit amount and Loan amount?

Ans: Deposit plays very important role in getting a better interest rate as well as Loan amount.
a) If you and your friend are getting a property with your 15% deposit and your friend with 20% for $600k worth of property value. Your friend will have a lower interest rate, it could be by 0.10% or bit more. Why? because you are in Lender mortgage criteria and it takes more work to finalise loan & few more other factors.

b) If you and your friend are depositing 20% of property value but your property value is $600k and your friend’s property value is $800k. At this time also there is likely chance of your friend getting lower interest rate.

2. What is his/her employment status ( FT/PT/Casual/contract ) 
& Length of work?
Ans: Lets for an example, if you have to give a loan to your friend who does not have a proper job or constantly changes jobs, does not have saving habits, lots of credit card and another loan, sometimes plays poker and drinks as well. Would you lend him/her $5,000 if your friend says he/she wants to invest? 100% NO because there is likely chance of losing money. In the same way, bank assesses files and make a decision.
Length of work in one place really matters!

There are other factors as well, we will discuss in future.

3. When was loan take, type of loan & Date of settlement?

Ans: Let’s take an example: You went to 5 different TV stores and finally decided to buy a TV from Bing Lee, TV seller. You paid $1,000 which is the best price in the market as on today’s date. But after 1 month JB-HI -FI decided to sell the same TV in $750. What would you do or what can you do? Even Bing Lee started to sell in $750, we can not do absolutely anything.

It is exactly the same on Home Loan interest rate. Take the best Home Loan and an interest rate on today’s date. Example: For first home buyers NAB is offering 2 years fixed rate on 3.69% but after 2 months if SUNCORP offers 3.5% interest rate, can you change or go? The answer will be exactly like above. Yes, you can but it will be more expensive.

4. Credit History & liabilities, expense & savings.

Ans: Bank wants to know about your saving and expense payment patterns that is why they ask for 3 months of Credit card and Bank statements. If you are paying a late fee on your $10k credit card then a bank will think if he/she does not even manage $10k credit card properly then how can will they manage $500k loan? so which puts them at risk and they might not negotiate on the interest rate.

Note: In short, It is NOT only important to have lower interest rate. What matters is, how much you can save at the end of the year. For example, if you are paying 4.10% interest rate and your friend is paying 3.99%, for me what matters is if you can save $200 -$1000 a year by paying even higher rate or not. Sometimes higher interest rates come with good features.

Plus: Inflation also plays a vital role too. Faster the inflation could bring rate cuts & Slow inflation could hike the interest rate.

Australian households have spent $4.4 billion on bank fees in 2016, up from $4.1 billion the previous year, new figures from the Reserve Bank have revealed.

Australian households have spent $4.4 billion on bank fees in 2016, up from $4.1 billion the previous year, new figures from the Reserve Bank have revealed.

The RBA’s annual Banking Fee Survey, released today, shows fee growth from credit cards slowed slightly in 2016 but stills remain the largest component of fee income from households with the increase attributed to the popularity of credit cards bundled with home loan packages.

There were also more examples of fees being charged, with some lenders no longer waiving fees for transferring a credit card balance to a new card provider.

What is my borrowing capacity ?

This should be the first and very important question that we have to ask ourselves, how much can I borrow? After the calculation is come in the fund and going out fund, we can get a clear picture and know how much you can borrow to purchase a property. While determining how much you can borrow banks and lenders mainly look at:

  • Credit card limits, Car loans, personal loans
  • Income and types of income e.g. full-time, part-time casual, contract,
  • The size of the loan compared to the property value ( LVR )
  • Number of dependents and their age
  • General living expenses, and
  • Existing asset position (Client contribution towards the loan)

 To increase borrowing power

  • Pay off ( or decrease ) and close any credit card & other current liabilities if possible
  • Start saving by decreasing miscellaneous expenses
  • Try to find the bank which does not calculate existing mortgage with same assessment interest in proposed loan.
