 With property prices rocketing in Brisbane as everywhere else, a very basic 2 bed home is $250,000+, units $180000+. This makes it impossible for a first time single homeowner ever to pay that kind of morgage, even if a bank approved a loan. I’m looking for an organisation that helps people get into houses, ie project building with work share, anything! I’m also looking at kit homes if I can find a cheap block within 50k of Brisbane. Currently have $15000 deposit and may be able to get the homeowners grant. I can’t get a homeloan for more than $130000.
Any help, please!!!Mortgage HunterParticipant@mortgage-hunterJoin Date: 2003Post Count: 3,781
Are you positive you can only borrow that much?
Have you been told that by a bank or by a broker?
Reason I ask is that some banks serviceability models are very strict allowing people to have limited borrowings. Others are much more generous.
The difference between two banks (extreme ends of the scale) can be enormous – nearly double! A broker will check accross the board whereas a bank is limited to only their products.
Post your details or email them to me and we can work out what your maximum really is accross the lenders.
I am not aware of any organisations such as you describe. One idea is to look further afield from Brisbane. Just be thankful you don’t live in Sydney
