FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES A MORTGAGE BROKER DO?
Mortgage brokers are qualified finance industry professionals. They work with you to determine your borrowing needs and objectives, and to help you determine how much you can borrow. We are more like your finance support family.
Also, brokers help to ensure that you don’t take out a loan that is not right for you. Like your solicitor, accountant or financial planner, we are specialists in what we do. We will provide you with a suitable finance solution to help you achieve your goals.
With a mortgage broker, you can expect a more personalised level of service than you would usually receive directly from a lender.
Additionally, our brokers have access to finance products from a wide variety of lenders. This means your broker can compare lending products and insurance from different lenders to find a loan that’s just right for you.
DO YOU CHARGE FEES FOR HOME LOAN AND INVESTMENT LOANS?
When you take out a loan via a mortgage broker, it does not cost you more in loan repayments. Brokers get paid a commission by the lender for bringing new business to them, but this does not impact your interest rate. Some brokers charge a fee for their service. They must disclose this fee upfront to you so that you know what it will cost if you engage their services.
DON’T YOU JUST RECOMMEND THE LENDER WHO PAYS YOU THE MOST COMMISSION?
ISN’T IT MORE EXPENSIVE TO USE MORTGAGE BROKERS?
Some brokers charge a fee for their service which they must disclose to you up-front before you engage their services.
However, the costs of the loan are the same. Also these costs depend on the loan and lender you choose. If you want to save on loan costs, just tell us.
Our team can locate loan products from the lenders with the lowest fees and charges.
HOW MUCH CAN I BORROW?
There are specific factors that need to be considered when determining how much a customer can borrow.
These factors are income, employment position, the deposit saved, current living expenses, and any liabilities. Our borrowing calculator can give you a rough idea of how much you may be able to borrow. Find the best and expert data in realtime.
If you find our calculator data but still have questions, we are ready to give you further support.
For a more accurate assessment, please give us a call and we can go into your options and discuss your circumstances in more detail.

SHOULD I GO FIXED OR VARIABLE?
A mortgage broker will recommend a product based on what you say is most important to you – for example, “pay my loan off quickly” or “guaranteed repayments” or “low cost”.
We do however, live by the following;
“If you want flexibility take a variable rate loan.”
“If you want budget certainty, take a fixed rate loan.
“If you want both, then do a split loan.”
WHICH LENDERS DO YOU DEAL WITH?
We can source you a loan from different lenders to provide you with a variety of options that are suitable for you and your situation including a choice many of the Aussie banks you’d expect, plus mortgage lenders you’ve never heard of.
WHO SETS INTEREST RATES?
Mortgage brokers do not set rates. So in short, Mortgage rate varies.
The Reserve Bank of Australia meet on the first Tuesday of every month to determine the official cash rate for the country. The lenders then use this information to set their own rates. Lenders also adjust their rates according to their costs and other economic considerations.
On the other hand, he have a useful calculator to help you out.
WHY SHOULD I USE A MORTGAGE BROKER IF I CAN GO WITH A BANK?
Lenders will only sell you their own financial products. Family Insurance, car loan, home loan, mortgage add on, and more.
Each bank (or lender) has a variety of loan products on offer – low doc, package loans, loans with re-draw facilities, plant and equipment loans, fixed rate loans, interest only, interested in advance, variable, introductory variable… and so on.
The issue you face as a consumer is ‘which loan is right for me?’ This is a common mortgage concern.
And that is where your mortgage broker becomes an invaluable resource! If you go direct to the bank, you will only be offered the loan options available through that one lender. Not a comprehensive Mortgage guide.
As your mortgage broker and with our professional team, we do all the legwork to find the right loan for your needs. We are across many lenders and all of their loan products, and our sole purpose is to find a suitable loan to match your personal financial circumstances and goals.
