Purchasing a home can be a daunting experience. There are interest rates to consider, seemingly endless paperwork to fill out, not to mention the search for the home itself.

As a homeowner with a mortgage, chances are you’ve heard the term ‘refinancing’. Refinancing simply involves reviewing your current mortgage against your personal needs and desires, comparing terms against current market offers, and potentially swapping your loan to another lender who can better meet your current needs, wants and circumstances
However, refinancing is not suited to everyone. Sometimes, a review reveals that a refinance isn’t required, and only some adjustments of the terms with your current provider are necessary to put you in a good position.
Just as there are when you borrow to purchase a house, there are many different factors to consider before refinancing. As your broker, Whiteroom Finance will spend time to discuss your needs and objectives, to analyse your current financial situation and make a recommendation that is suited to your own unique position.
Whiteroom Finance is committed to ensuring loans remain relevant for our clients, and offer a free review every year.
Thinking of building a new home? Did you know there is special type of personal finance loan for that purpose? A construction loan is progress based, meaning your builder receives funds in stages (progress draws) as the construction of your new home progresses
The lender will rely on the value of the property as if it is complete, and will pay the builder directly as the construction progresses. You will only pay interest on the balance of the loan as is increases during construction, not the whole lot at once and when your house is finished and all the progress draws are complete, you will begin paying full principal and interest payments on the total amount.
A construction loan is great because it saves you money while you build and because the lender will provide a loan based on what they expect the property to be worth once it’s finished, not just the vacant land.
Looking to buy your first home? There are many types of finance aimed at first home buyers and a lot of pitfalls to look out for. Whiteroom Finance knows this can be confusing and helps drown out the noise to find the right home loan that works for you. We help you understand:
Often, it can be difficult for first time home buyers to save a deposit for a home loan.

Investment home loans are not just about buying an investment property, though that may be exactly what works for you.
Much like any home loan, the amount you can borrow for investment purposes depends on equity (or deposit) you have available, and how much you can afford. Unlike a home loan, the interest you incur on an investment loan could be used to reduce your tax obligations, and the asset you buy with the funds may provide you an income.
The most common type of investment loan is used to buy an investment property. Your tenants pay the mortgage and this income is offset by the costs of the loan and property management. When these costs are more than the rent you receive, this is commonly called Negative Gearing. However, you can use the equity in your own home to take an investment loan to buy shares, or other investment assets with a similar result.
Whether this is right for you depends on the equity you have available, income vs expenses, the type of asset being purchased, short, medium, and long-term personal goals and even your own aversion to risk.
