Make an Offer
Once you decide that this home is “the one for me” you’ll need to make a formal offer to buy the property. You’ll want to make your offer contingent on final approval of your mortgage application and a property inspection before you get your home loan.
Try to negotiate ten days to accomplish both, instead of the standard five to allow more time for yourself. If the buyer accepts the terms of your offer, we will move forward and prepare the loan documents for your settlement date.
Types of First Home Buyer Loans
Follow these tips to get approved with better rates
When it comes to saving money, our variable interest home loan can potentially leave more money in your pocket and it provides the opportunity to pay off your mortgage at a faster rate.
Variable home loans can be of two types: basic and standard. A standard variable home loan is more full-featured and gives you additional features including:
- Redraw & offset facilities
- Ability to make extra repayments
- The option to split your loan.
Oyster Hub offers both types of loans for you and with the ability to compare the variable rates.
One of the main advantages of a fixed rate mortgage is the peace of mind that comes with knowing your monthly repayment amount for your home loan.
You can’t beat the predictability of a fixed-rate home loan, knowing how much you have to repay no matter what the situation. When it comes to choosing the right one, we have two options for you to consider:
1. Fixed Interest Rate Home Loan
This loan is available for between 1 and 5 years. At the end of the fixed period, you have the option to refix for a new term or have the loan revert back to the standard variable interest rate.
During the fixed period the mortgage repayments and interest rate remain constant. Extra repayments are normally not permitted on this type of loan.
2. Progressive Fixed Interest Rate Home Loan
This home loan is similar to a standard fixed rate home loan, with one important difference:
- You have the ability to make extra repayments without incurring a penalty fee.
You can access any additional features such as a redraw facility and an offset account.
The main feature of our construction mortgage is that you can stagger the drawdowns of the various parts of your loan to correspond with the stage of development that your property is at.
After construction is complete, your loan will automatically revert to a standard variable rate home loan providing you with that peace of mind.
This type of loan is available to for both registered builders and owner-builders. So, you can finally make the dream of building your dream home a reality!
It may seem that choosing between a fixed and variable home loan is black and white, it’s either one or the other. However, there is a third way and it allows you to combine the best features of both loan types - split loans.
A split loan allows you to have a portion of your home loan with a fixed interest rate and the remaining portion with a variable interest rate.
You have the option of selecting the percentage you would like fixed and the percentage you would like variable, as long as the minimum fixed amount is covered, as per the individual loan requirements.
Bad Credit Loans
Having a bad credit score doesn’t mean that you’re not able to get into your own home. It just means that you will have to approach lenders outside of the big banks.
At Oyster Hub, we understand that people can find themselves in all sorts of financial circumstances and we have a mortgages to help. The process of applying for a ‘bad credit’ home loan is a little more involved than for a traditional loan but we can guide you through the process efficiently and effectively.
If your credit history is not great then you will generally have to have a larger deposit and the rates will be higher than for other mortgage types. You will also have to check that all of your outstanding debts are paid prior to submitting the application.
However, a ‘bad credit’ mortgage presents a real opportunity for you to get your finances back on track and own your own home.
