We help find you the right home loan
The best ‘deal’ is not the cheapest rate. We examine your specific needs and future plans to recommend a loan that is right for you & your situation. Having an appropriate home loan which works for you can also help you build wealth. We are also experts in structuring home loans to ensure that it meets your full requirements for the foreseeable future, particularly when investing. Sometimes we can obtain a better rate than you can as we know the discount structures and which lenders are seeking business.
We offer convenience & choice
We can meet with you at a time that is convenient for you. We have a wide range of Lenders from which to access a suitable product/structure for you. We can also assist in the purchase process by providing you with specific property reports from RP Data. We can also liaise with your Solicitor/Real Estate Agent/Accountant if & when required to ensure a smooth and timely settlement.
Why us over a bank
We are experts in home loans. If your loan does not settle, we do not get paid. Bank staff are paid whether you obtain a home loan or not, so they are not as likely to work hard to ensure the best possible outcome for you. Your interest rate will be just the same as if you were dealing directly with a Bank or Lender yourself, sometimes even cheaper. Our business is built on referrals – hence, it is in our best interests to ensure that you obtain a home loan from a Lender that you are satisfied with. We also keep our Clients well informed beyond Settlement. Our valuable information alert service provides you with relevant information on the home loan/property markets, updates on Lenders/products, and special offers that may be of interest to you. We also keep it entertaining with several competitions/giveaways throughout the year.
HSL is widely recognised & acknowledged as experts in the Construction Finance process – the most challenging type of Finance in residential lending. HSL will manage the process from the initial pre-approval all the way to when the keys to your new home land in your hands. We also have the knowledge and ‘know how’ to manage Valuations and any issues that may arise. We will communicate directly with your Land Sales professional, Conveyancer & Builder to ensure the process is as smooth as possible for you.
Home Loan ‘Brokers’ are now governed by strict legislation and must be appropriately licenced, accredited and educated within the finance industry. Often you will find that we have a higher standard of education and knowledge than your local bank home loan Consultants. This is particularly important when seeking to invest and build a property portfolio. Over 15 years as a Personal Home Loan Adviser and an Investment Property Specialist, Tarek has far more experience than many bank officers exposed to one single Lender and who often have no experience with any other Lenders products. In many instances, we are also able to find a suitable Lender should your Bank decline your loan application.
Best of all, our service is completely free if you are securing residential property! As lenders pay our commission, there is no cost to you for our home loan application service.
