First Home Buyers

Thinking about buying your first home?

It’s never too early to give me a call and talk through your goals and plans of buying your first home. I’m here for the journey, getting to know you, working out some realistic goals and eventually helping you to secure the finance for your first home.

 Why work with a mortgage broker.

I have access to 30 lenders and know the in’s and out’s of what each one can offer. I’ll recommend the most suitable home loan for your situation. If you were doing this yourself, you’d be spending a lot of time and not necessarily finding the right fit. And it’s not just the actual loan, it’s about getting guidance on the entire process, of planning and working out the right approach.


So where do you start?

I have a created a step-by-step First Home Buyers Guide as a resource to help you better understand what is involved with buying your first home, and how working with a broker like Cherry Lending + Finance can help make the process a smooth and enjoyable one. Click below to download.

How does the process work?

It starts with a chat...

…getting to know you on a personal level and understanding your short and long-term goals. It’s never too early! It’s often best to start chatting a year before you plan to really make a purchase.

I’ll give you an action plan...

…to ensure you are ready, know what to expect and provide various options to consider like Rent-vesting or other ways to get into the market.

By doing this I can then determine the right lending solution for your situation and give you the confidence that you have made the right decision moving forward.

Start looking

Armed with your pre-approval, you can start looking at real-estate. I’m so passionate about this that I often volunteer my time to check out properties for my clients! I’m here to bounce options and ideas.

When you’re ready to secure the loan, I’ll do all the legwork for you so it all runs smoothly.

proactively review your loan

Every year, I will proactively review your loan and ensure it’s working for you. I’ll offer alternatives if there are better options. I’m also available any time to discuss changes in your situation or new plans.
