Why it pays to get good advice

Finding the right information isn’t always easy but, when it comes to your finances, it’s important.

Whether you’re looking to break into the property market or simply need information on your borrowing options it’s really important that you seek good advice before making any major decisions.

Unfortunately, it can sometimes be difficult to discern the good from the bad when it comes to working out the finance options that suit you. This is where a Mike Pero mortgage broker can help, so you don’t have to navigate through the maze of information all on your own.

So, when should you seek advice? Here are a few situations where the services of a mortgage broker may be particularly useful.

So you’re……

Wondering where to go if you have imperfect credit

Don’t assume just because you don’t have a squeaky clean credit history that it’s the end of the line for you when it comes to borrowing. Some lenders are far more open-minded when it comes to assessing your financial past. The key is knowing who to speak to.

At Mike Pero, we understand that life has its ups and downs and this can have an impact on your credit history. That’s why we work with applicants to come up with tailored solutions to try to suit each individual’s needs.

Looking to break into the property market

Saving a 20 per cent deposit to enter the property market can be a daunting prospect. The good news is that some lenders are quite flexible when it comes to the source of funds they will accept as a deposit - that’s why finding the right lender is important.

So whatever your situation: whether you have a deposit, funds from an inheritance or gift, impaired credit or less than six months PAYE employment history, speak to a Mike Pero Adviser about the options available to you.

Ready to invest but unsure what deposit you require?

With the recent restrictions to loan-to-value ratios imposed on the big banks you might be wondering how much of a deposit you may require. The good news is that there are smaller lenders out there offering loans with lower deposit requirements than the banks.

So, what’s the next step? The answer is simple: seek good advice from someone with the right experience and knowledge – like a Mike Pero Adviser.
