Eyes larger than your wallet – You desire it all and you mean now but that’s difficult. First-home buyers have to super-nanny their housing wants and stop acting like spoiled brats. Warning! Flee from your ‘me generation’ arrogance and do not sign up for a mortgage that’s too huge.

Honeymoon rates – …are nearly as overwhelming as heart-shaped beds. A discounted interest rate is enticing, but as soon as the honeymoon is over you could be burdened with a greater rate than what you could get from a different home loan. A latest comparison of introductory rate home loans uncovers that on average they cost borrowers more than $16,000 than normal standard adjustable rate loans.

Rate-smate – Failing to think through about the plan for interest rate rises could trigger off weighty mortgage hassle. New borrowers tend to be mainly sensitive to rate rises as they tend to be earning fewer in proportion of income to repayments. So take a firm scan at your capability to service repayments over the next 12 months and maintain well-informed of market forecasts on interest rates. Also, you can’t at all times rely on lenders to increase rates in lock-step with the RBA.

Low-cost and nasty – more often than not, a scam! Working out the features that are most significant to you and your financial intents, and acquiring a good deal that can include those points will perhaps be better in the long-run.

Pro-pack(ed with fees) – Professional package rates can be presented with lower interest rates however they entail borrowers to package all your financial products and services as one like credit cards, personal loans and insurance. Watch out that you possibly will have to pay a yearly fee to accept discounts on financial accounts. Also, lenders typically need your loan to be over a particular boundary for you to be qualified.

Deposit disillusion – You saved a deposit, it is a good thing. You will also have to cover stamp duty, maintenance costs, and legal and inspection fees.

Blind loyalty – It pays to research the market and look at some alternate lenders and what they have to bargain.
