Owning a property
Duffy’s median home and unit prices are still affordable for first home buyers who would like to relocate to the verdant neighbourhood. Fortunately, taking out a home loan in Duffy is easy, thanks to straightforward borrowing policies among lenders and banks.
To determine one’s eligibility for a home loan, property buyers can simply approach a mortgage or finance specialist for an initial assessment. Gaining pre-approval is quick and the specialist could already give buyers an idea of how much they can borrow or if they can proceed with the home loan.
Requirements for a home loan application include two payslips and a copy each of one’s savings account, group certificate and identification cards. The next step is a review of the applicant’s credit history, asset value and net worth. How much you could borrow would depend on your income surplus or a determined percentage of your income.
