First time buyers

Your journey towards your first home

Helping you get your foot on the property ladder

Buying your first home is a very exciting milestone in your life. However, it is likely to involve some of the most important financial decisions you will ever make, and the magnitude of the decision can often make it a daunting prospect.

The choices you have when selecting a mortgage can be overwhelming, due to the fact that there are so many products and lenders to choose from and making the wrong choice could be so costly. From the thousands of options available to our brokers from across the whole market, they will recommend only the best solutions based on your needs.

Wherever you are in your property financing journey, we have the options and advice that can make a difference.

Why get your first mortgage?


The most obvious benefit is that it allows you to become a homeowner. Instead of renting, you'll have a place to call your own, which can provide stability and security.

Building Equity

As you make mortgage payments, you gradually build equity in your home. This equity can be a valuable asset over time and can be tapped into, through methods like refinancing or selling your home at a profit.

Financial Stability

Owning a home can provide a sense of financial stability and predictability, since your mortgage payments are typically fixed for a certain period (if you choose a fixed-rate mortgage).

Retirement Planning

Owning a home can be a part of your retirement planning. As you pay down your mortgage, you may have reduced housing expenses in retirement.
