Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is an interest only loan?

A. An interest only loan is a loan where you are just paying off the interest, not reducing the total loan amount or principal.  Usually with an interest only loan your interest only period is limited (typically from 1 – 5 years or based on the fixed rate of the loan).

Q. What is an offset account?

A. An offset account is a bank account linked to your mortgage that can be used to reduce the interest you pay on the loan.

Basically an offset account enables you to put all of your surplus cash into an account that reduces your loan by reducing the outstanding balance during the month. This is called daily reducible interest. Interest is calculated daily, and charged monthly.

Q. What is Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI)?

A. Lenders Mortgage Insurance is a way that borrowers can access finance with a smaller deposit than is usually required.

The premise of Lenders Mortgage Insurance is that the lender is protected against a loss, should you default on your loan and the security property sales results do not cover the outstanding cost of the loan.

Q. Can you help with financing a commercial property purchase?

A. Yes, at First in Finance we can look after all your finance needs and have extensive experience in arranging finance for Commercial Property.

Positive Or Negative Gearing

Negative Gearing, Negative gearing is when your income from an investment is less than your expenses. In the case of property this means the rental income you receive is less than the interest and other expenses you pay. Your investment is making a loss which most investors hope they will make up with a capital gain when the value of the property increases.

Positive gearing, Positive gearing is where your income from an investment is higher than your interest and/or other expenses. This means you will have extra money in your budget but you will have to pay tax on the additional net income.
