  • Depending where you are, in South Australia the government have an agency called Homestart, they provide loans for people on low incomes, and also high incomes, graduate loans, basically anyone that does not meet the normal criteria, their fees can be a little higher but the repayments are based on income and they can defer part of the loan, the options that they offer are endless and many people find that it is the way into home ownership and then when their circumstances improve they refinance elsewhere, but many people stay with homestart as they are a good honest organisation that reinvests any profits to help low income people to own their own homes,

  • Any luck with securing a home loan?

  • Not wanting to be too negative, but if banks knocked you back, they probably did it for a reason. Single-income family, dependent on Centrelink, would be a huge risk for them. What would happen to your mortgage payments if something happened to change your Centrelink benefits? If you could get some part-time or casual work, that would enable you to maintain you Centrelink benefits, while earning a little extra, financial institutions may look a little more favourably if you’re looking for finance.

  • You may seek advise from broker but do you really wanna risk it with your financial situation? There’s more bills to worry once you own a home..

    I agree that Mortgage Choice is the best way to go at this stage. Seek advise and ask any questions you have to be sure you can really do it!

    All the best!

  • I agree a mortgage broker is the best option as they have access to a vast array of lenders to suite different criteria and can answer all the questions you need answered.

  • This is a hard one. Depending on where you live we used mortage choice and they were fantastic. But you may just need to leave it until you are in a better position .
