property market decline

On Melbourne’s busiest weekend of auctions 27/10/2018 for the spring selling season, around one in two homes up for sale got passed in.The clearance rate for more than 1400 scheduled auctions across Victoria was 48 per cent according to Domain Group data. The result is a continued reflection of the softening property market decline according to agents and experts.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated that 30,620 Australian residential houses commenced construction in June 2018, rising 9.6% from the year before.

With the construction market rapidly growing, it’s handy for you to know that you have a Flexible Home Loan as a construction loan – borrowing up to 95% of the property’s value once built (inclusive of LMI).

During construction, you only pay the interest on your construction loan as per funds drawn at stage by the builder– and you won’t start paying principal and interest until construction has been completed

how to get a loan approved after being declined

How to get a loan approved after getting declined

It’s one thing when the banks say no to a borrower with an “out-of-the-box” scenario as we don’t live in a perfect world along with the fact that there are events that occur in anyone’s life that one cannot control, but what happens when an everyday event that occurs & one of the clients request to borrow funds gets turned down?

Recently we examined a scenario my client had approached a major bank to apply for a loan solution as the borrower was seeking a loan of $550k to purchase another property as they had considerable funds held in their savings account, but despite his clear credit history, the bank would only lend him $325k.


We captured the borrower’s circumstances in one of the many banks servicing calculator, in the same way as they had been given to the bank, to see whether we would be able to [...]

First Time Home buyers

Buying your First home can be a daunting task. But millions of people have been there before you and survived. If you do your homework or speak to “Suresh” your senior mortgage broker at DBIJ Finance, you’ll have the best possible chance of finding a place you can afford for a price you can pay. The big surprise for many first-timers is that they need to finish the first five steps on this list before they can even begin to look for a home.


1. Review Your Financial Health

Before clicking through pages of online listings or falling in love with your dream home, do a serious audit of your finances. First look at savings.  Don’t even consider buying a home before you have an emergency savings account with three to six months of living expenses. Look at how much is left over in your savings and investment accounts that could contribute towards a 5-10% initial deposit.


9 Income Sources That will help you Boost Your Borrowing Power

Whether you’re planning to buy your first home or an investment property or just want to upgrade to a larger dwelling, then it’s essential to maximise your borrowing power by fully considering your income source.

Banks and other lenders assess your supplementary income streams quite differently to your base salary. And each bank employs their own unique set of policies and criteria to determine how much they’re willing to lend.

A detailed appraisal of all your incomes sources is necessary to secure the most appropriate loan for your situation. All possible income sources need to be reviewed. Whether these income streams are assessed correctly or not, could mean the difference between securing your dream home, or missing out to another buyer.

According to Veda Advantage or Equifax, a credit score is a number that lenders use to help them decide: “If I give this person a loan or credit card, how likely is it I will get paid back on time?” The information from your credit reports is used to create your credit score.  Your credit score will always be a key ingredient for low interest rates when qualifying for mortgage or home equity loans.

Before getting a line of credit, get your free credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies (CRAs): Veda Advantage or Equifax, under federal law, you are entitled to one every year. Order online at, or call 13 83 32. Check to make sure someone else’s information isn’t mixed into your report. If so, contact the CRA immediately and have them delete it.
