No two home loans are the same therefore the time frames will vary depending on your individual circumstances. Each loan may vary slightly depending upon the lender selected, the valuer and/or the complexity of the loan application. We will be with you every step of the way through the finance process to answer any questions you may have.
Step 1. – Interview
This is done at a time and place convenient to you, either your home, workplace or our office. During the interview we will listen to you to help us fully understand your current situation and what it is you want and expect. Then a fact finding document is completed to gather all the information and your goals and objectives. Once we have all the information required we can then search for various options available to you. After researching many different lenders and loans we will get back to you with 3 preferred options which best suit your current circumstances. Once we have decided together the most appropriate lender and loan product and you are fully satisfied and agree it is the right option for you, then the loan application process begins and a home loan application form is completed for that particular lender.
