First Mortgage

Starting out - the first home loan

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

Home ownership is a balance of risk and reward. The first home buyers I’ve spoken to know that all too well. With house prices (more or less consistently) on the rise over the past many years, those on the outside of home ownership see an ever-growing hurdle to enter the market.

The first home and the first home loan – what to look for

The first home may not be your dream home. See it as first step onto the property ladder. Congratulate yourself. Home ownership is a rewarding journey. Be aware that if you want to turn it into financial success then you will have to invest; time, effort and / or money. If you’re good with DIY then that places you ahead already.

A little can go a long way. Now that you have a mortgage it’s important to understand a little about compound interest. When you save money you earn interest, not only on the original amount, but also on the interest that you’ve earned. What few understand is that this “interest on interest” grows exponentially.

It’s the same, but turned upside down, with the mortgage. The more you can pay off, the less interest you will be charged and, just as each little payment on your savings adds to the “interest on interest” so each little payment subtracts to the interest that the bank can charge.

Read about some tips and tricks of how you can save tens and possibly hundreds of thousands …

You’ve been turned down by the bank. For some reason, you may have a black mark against your credit record. Don’t despair, you still have options and not all is lost.

Be aware that banks have to be responsible. Their ideal client is someone who has disposable income and has the will to pay back the loan. Understandably, if your credit rating is anything less than shiny, then they will be somewhat shy to lend to you.

Business and asset expansion

Property Investment Loans Property investment has been a kiwi investment favorite for a long time, and there is good reason:
  • There is a wealth of ready information on risk, capital growth, purchase price, geographic variation. You can decide, to a degree, how much cash, if any, will be required for your initial purchase.
  • If you are in a position to purchase investment property, then you’re probably also in a position to choose your loan structure.
  • There are options to manage the property. Either you can do this yourself or you can engage a property management company.
  • You have control on adding value by making property improvements, or you can choose to maintain the property.
  • You have control over the tenant, the rent, the location and when to divest.
If you own rental property then you need to know what loss ringfencing is and how your accountant can apply it. From the 2019-20 income year new ring-fencing rules mean people cannot use rental losses to offset other income like salary and wages.
At Life-n-loans we’ve know that each one of our clients is different and that their requirements are unique. There is no “one fits all” solution and, if you’re about to go it alone, then be aware that you will potentially miss out on the wealth of industry knowledge that we have built up over years of successful business.

Mortgage Consolidation

Financial Consolidation

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

A “reverse mortgage” is similar to a normal mortgage, but has been designed for people over 60 that have built up equity.

A reverse mortgage is designed to free up cash for a more comfortable lifestyle in the later years. Unlike a normal mortgage that attracts regular repayments to pay off the loan and the interest, with the reverse mortgage, the interest is added to the loan.

Moving your existing mortgage or loan from one lender or bank to another is called refinancing. There are a number of reasons that you may consider replacing your existing mortgage with a new loan. Competition between banks means that there is often a variance of interest rates between banks, and even a small reduction in rates can make a big difference in the amount you pay over the term of the loan.

Debt consolidation is not only for those heading to retirement, in fact it should be considered if you’ve got more than a few loans, regardless of where you are in your financial life.

Managing a number of loans can be confusing, not only from a management aspect, but can also stand in your way if you want to start a new loan.
