The SBS, Kiwibank, ASB, BNZ and Westpac banks have teams of specialist mobile managers to arrange your mortgage for our Affordable Equity product. We will introduce you to one of these banks and a mobile manager will meet with you. To test what you can borrow, we suggest you use the banks' mortgage calculators and if you want more information on their mortgage lending terms and conditions, go to www.sbsbank.co.nz, www.kiwibank.co.nz, www.asb.co.nz, www.bnz.co.nz and www.westpac.co.nz
We like our families to prepare a budget that shows how they can pay the rent and repay their debt. The New Zealand Federation of Family Budgeting Services can help you do this – their service is free and confidential. We can refer you to the office closest to where you live. For more information go to www.familybudgeting.org.nz
If you think you could have 10% deposit for a house (from Kiwisaver, the First Home Buyer Grant, a gift from family or savings), then a Welcome Home Loan could be for you.
With a Welcome Home Loan pre-approval you can buy a new house of your choice instead of through New Zealand Housing Foundation. See www.welcomehomeloan.co.nz
First home buyers can use their Kiwisaver contributions as a deposit for a house. You can withdraw some or all of your KiwiSaver savings (except for the $1,000 kick-start and member tax credit) to put towards buying your first home. You need to have been a KiwiSaver member for three or more years and you can only withdraw money to buy your first home. For more information, go to www.kiwisaver.govt.nz
