First Home Buyer Newsletter

by | Aug 11, 2021

 
 
If this is your first newsletter from us then a very warm welcome to you.

You are receiving this as you have recently downloaded our webinar for first home buyers or contacted us directly.

Today I want to cover only the Federal Government Schemes, all released on 1st July.

Treat this as a summary of the key points.

Future newsletters will cover specific home purchasing finance and general tips to assist you on your journey towards home ownership.

Current Government Schemes.
On 1st July the Federal Government released 10,000 places in each of the following three schemes to make it easier to buy your home.

The key benefit of each is the ability to purchase with a much lower deposit than normally required with no lenders mortgage insurance (LMI) to pay.

Each is possibly very useful for you and our work with our clients is confirming this.

In July six of our clients have purchased already and over 30 have been pre-approved.

This note covers the main points. Please reach out if you want to learn how they may benefit you or if you have any other questions (see link at end of note).
