Buying your first home or investing in a property is a major decision. A Home loan is the most common tool to finance these assets, which is an arrangement between you and a lender who lends you money to purchase the property. Usually, this arrangement will be put in place for up to 25 years.
Your credit worthiness and the value of the property compared to the loan amount (commonly referred to as Loan to Valuation ratio – LVR) are amongst some of the key factors that lenders consider when assessing your application. In addition, there are other pieces of information, which are important to support your application including your family income, type of work and other demographics.
