Buying Your First Home Is Exciting, But It Can Also Be Daunting…

Looking at land, plans, and potential homes is exciting. Dreaming about where your furniture will go. And looking forward to paying off your own home rather than helping somebody else build their wealth. But it can also be overwhelming and confusing working out all the details including…

  • How much money can you afford to borrow and what can you do to maximise your loan application success?
  • What interest rate should you expect to pay and how can you make sure you’re getting the lowest rate possible?
  • What government grants are available and how do you apply?
  • What legal pitfalls do you need to watch out for?
  • Where’s the best place in Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula to buy your first home?
  • Where do you start and what does the entire process look like?

Most people thinking about buying their first home in Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula have these same questions and concerns.

To give you all the answers and information you need, and an easy-to-follow plan to get the very best loan and save thousands in interest and repayments (so you can move into your new home sooner), we invite you to book a Free First Home Buyers Session with our local finance team.

"We work with more than 40 lenders to find the very best loan to suit your specific circumstances and goals"

Banks Will Only Offer You One Loan Product: Theirs

When thinking about a home loan, most people know about the big 4 banks. But the problem is, banks will only offer you their loan, with their set fees and rates. As a result, many people end up overpaying tens of thousands of dollars over the life of their loan – thousands they could have used to…

  • Pay their loan off years sooner
  • Put towards extra features in their home
  • Improve their lifestyle with some little luxuries
  • And even redirect into investments to grow your wealth faster

To be sure you’re getting the best rates, fees and conditions on your loan, you have to compare all your options. But it’s not easy doing all this research and analysis on your own. And it can be challenging applying for government grants, structuring your finances, and completing complicated paperwork – all while trying to maintain life-as-usual.

Scott and the team have provided me with peace of mind and an exceptionally better deal than what I was on. The courteous, polite and professionalism afforded to me by all was exceptional.

The communication was clear and they were supportive at every step of the process. Their transparency always made me feel prioritised and valued. They went over and above to make this process as easy as possible for me.

Their responses to queries, even outside standard business hours, was exceptional. I have recommended both friends
and family.

AWFS team helped us with our first home finance. Their support and guidance was on the point. Special thanks to Andrew and Sanda for pushing through my application with the bank within a week to meet my settlement. Great team, will reach out to them for my future investments.

- Samarth Patel

Thank you to Andrew at AWFS for helping us arrange finance to buy our first home. Andrew is communicative and professional, answering any queries we had and making things so much more understandable for us both. Highly recommend!

- Maisie Barlow

Fantastic service from Scott & his support staff. All questions answered, I’s dotted and T’s crossed. Nothing to too difficult for them and all concerns were addressed. Everything was a smooth process. For us being self employed it was probably the easiest refinance we have ever dealt with. So happy to have come across and been recommended AWFS.

Even after settlement, our broker kept in touch if we had any questions and will continue to keep in touch. Always on the lookout for better deals. Thanks again Scott & team. You definitely have a client for life 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

How are you better than a bank?

Firstly, which one do you choose? Which of their products is right for you? And what about other lenders, building societies and credit unions?

Australia is indeed the lucky country. We are blessed for choice when it comes to the amount of competition that exists when it comes to the mortgage market. With so many lenders, and so many products under each of their brands, it’s important you make the most of this regarding who and what you choose when it comes to your home loan.

There are a lot of options out there and, with regularly moving interest rates and new products, it’s an ever-changing market. And let’s not forget that if you’re a first homebuyer, you’re probably very new to this.

That’s why a broker makes sense. We do this everyday. We know the lenders, their products and policies and we keep up-to-date with changes. We help choose what’s right for you.

While banks merely promote their own financial products (whether they are the best for you or not), we are 100% independent and compare hundreds of loans from more than 40 lenders to get you the very best loan (rates, fees and conditions). Plus, we help you through the whole process to make getting your new home easy.

How are you different to other brokers?

All brokers can get you a loan. But we go further to ensure your finances are optimised to save tax, interest, and fees, so you can pay your home off years sooner.

Plus, we’ve been operating in Geelong for more than 22 years which means we know the area and have a well-established network of trusted professionals to help you get your first home sooner.

And because we’re a local, family business, you’ll be treated like (and feel like) a valued client and friend. Because you are!

When’s the best time to start looking at finance?

Whether you’ve found the house you want or you think you’re still a year or more away, it’s never too early to understand your options. In fact, many people are surprised by what they can afford right now.

A free Lending Strategy Session will not only give you details about your borrowing capacity and repayments, you’ll walk away with an easy-to-follow plan and timeline to make sure the money is there when you need it.

Do I qualify for First Home Owners Grant or other incentives?

Possibly. We’ll let you know for sure when we speak. The First Home Owners Grant and other various grants and stamp duty concessions may be available to give first homebuyers a leg up.

The grants usually apply to apartments and houses up to a certain value. These thresholds can vary depending on the type of dwelling and the state or territory in which the property is located. The savings can be significant. So it’s certainly worth exploring.

How much deposit will I need?

Most lenders require a deposit of a minimum of 5% of the total loan amount. We can give you a better idea when we connect one-on-one. Remember, it’s never too early to speak to a mortgage broker. You might be surprised what you’re able to accomplish.

How much do you charge?

Using a mortgage broker costs you absolutely nothing.

Banks do pay us a commission that they otherwise would have allocated towards marketing and advertising.

You will usually get a much better deal through us because unlike banks, we’re not limited to the loan products of any one lender.

Not only do you receive free, independent, expert lending advice, we offer additional property and financial guidance based on our 22 years of experience and our network of trusted advisors.

It’s a no-brainer if you ask us.
