If you self-employed less than a year, you still able to borrow. Please give us a call and we will give you more information.

Whether you’re completing major renovations, knocking down an existing property or re-building and starting fresh, a Construction Loan may meet your needs.
Building a property or undertaking major renovations is a big project, so it’s important you know what to expect at each stage. Construction Loans give you the flexibility to draw down the loan at various stages of the build (also known as Progress Payments).
Your Progress Payment Schedule will typically have 5-6 stages during the construction period.
For more information on what to expect contact us for more information.
So you’ve decided to renovate but undoubtedly have a lot of questions about how to fund it.
You might be wondering how much you can spend, what you can afford to repay, whether the bank lends you enough to pay for your renovation and how you pay the builder. We’re here to give you all the answers and guide you through the process to get a successful outcome.
We have helped clients finance renovations of all sizes, from large projects like lifting a Queenslander and adding new rooms underneath, through to small renovations like adding a back deck or upgrading the kitchen.
Ideally, you should review your home loan every five years. By then, enough time would have passed to help you assess your loan in relation to the current stage of your life.
For example, if you were newly-married when you took out your loan and had children during that five-year period, then you may have to adjust your loan to something that will help you stretch your budget further.
In this case, you can choose a loan with lower monthly repayments in exchange for a longer loan term. On the other hand, if your children have already left school, this leaves more room in your budget to make bigger monthly repayments and thus pay off your loan sooner.
Remember, the home loan market is very competitive and getting more and more competitive every year, so even though the standard review time may be 5 years, there is no harm in getting your EZ Financing broker to ask your current lender to review the rate. You never know you may just get an extra 0.10 – 0.20% discount for a quick phone call.
