Lee Harvey

Mortgage Broker Shellharbour, Barrack Heights, Flinders

I was born and raised in Shellharbour and bring a wealth of local experience and knowledge to the role. I am dedicated to one-on-one service and efficient processing times to ensure my clients needs come first. My team’s goal is for clients to feel like the process of obtaining finance was far easier when working with us.  The best advice we can provide in the current market is be ready for change.

Home Loans in Shellharbour

I have access to home loans from a wide panel of major banks and secure lenders, and I truly understand home finance in a real estate context. Getting your home loan sorted out early can ensure you are in the best position to negotiate for your home on your own terms. And while the home loan application process can seem daunting, it is often simpler than most people think.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm settling into life at Cronulla in my new unit. Going for a walk each morning along the Esplanade is very good for the soul - I love being close to the water. Being 'transplanted' is never easy - still waiting on my land line and home internet, living off concrete floors after having the carpet removed and still rearranging furniture because I keep changing my mind. The cat has reappeared after crawling into the built in wardrobe for 2 days and not eating - she's finally accepted that we're here for good and is returning to her normal social self. Thanks again for making my dream a reality!

Home Loan Deposits

Most banks and lenders will require a minimum deposit of 5 per cent of the value of the property you are purchasing, before they will approve you for a home loan. Depending on the lender and your individual situation, you may be able to fund your deposit from a range of sources, including genuine savings, monetary gifts, inheritances and first home owner incentives. However, most lenders will require at least a portion of your deposit to come from genuine savings.

If you don’t have the deposit required, you may be able to make use of family equity, also known as a limited guarantor loan. The most common form of family equity is where a family member, offers their existing property as security for a portion of the home loan, generally around 20 per cent.

First Home Buyers in Shellharbour

Buying your first home is an exciting experience, but there is a lot to think about. I make the home loan application process as smooth and easy as possible, so you can concentrate on finding the right home. As part of my service, I will help you to understand the types of home loans available to you and will assist you in choosing the right one for your situation. If you are eligible for the First Home Owners Grant or any state government first home buyer assistance, I will help you fill in the paperwork.

Home Loan Pre-approval

Home loan pre-approval is a great way to ensure you know how much you can afford to pay for a property before you even start looking. A written pre-approval can also give you an advantage when negotiating on a property with a vendor, as opposed to someone who has no pre-approval or finance in place. Home loan pre-approval is generally valid for about three months, and you will still need a satisfactory valuation on the property you intend to purchase before your pre-approval can progress to a full loan approval.

Property Investment Loans in Shellharbour

Property investment can be a smart wealth creation strategy, if you get it right. And that doesn’t just mean finding the right property – you need the right investment finance as well. Your investment loan package should be tailored to your investment strategy and goals. I work closely with your financial planner and accountant to make that happen. Whether you are an experienced property investor with a big portfolio, or just starting out with your first property, I can help you get the right investment loan for your circumstances.

Refinancing Loans

Refinancing your mortgage is something that takes careful consideration. The most important thing to look at is if refinancing will place you in a better position than you would be if you stuck with your current loan. I can go through the sums with you to show you the costs involved in changing home loans, as well as your projected costs over a set timeframe for both your current and proposed home loans. And if you decide that refinancing is the right move for you, I will help you complete all the necessary paperwork to make the change.

Debt Consolidation in Shellharbour

Debt consolidation can be a handy solution when you are struggling with repayments on several debts, such as your home loan, credit cards and personal loans. Debt consolidation works by combining all those debts into your home loan, which is generally the debt with the lowest interest rate. Because the interest rate is lower, and the loan term is usually longer, your monthly repayments will drop, giving you a bit of breathing space.

Business/Commercial Loans

Good business finance is invaluable when purchasing and growing your business. Business and commercial loan options vary depending on whether you are a start-up or existing business. Whether you are buying commercial property, undertaking property development, expanding your business or need some cash-flow funding, assistance from an expert commercial finance broker will be invaluable.

Thank you Lee, I really appreciate the advice and assistance you have provided throughout this process. I would not hesitate in referring clients, family and friends to you.

Low Doc Loans for Self-Employed Borrowers in Shellharbour

Many self-employed borrowers need a loan that isn’t quite standard, mostly because they don’t have the full financial history required to get a regular loan. Low documentation, or low doc, loans fulfil the needs of many self-employed borrowers. You’ll still need some financial history and paperwork – often about 12 months BAS statements and an ABN that has been active for at least 6-12 months.

Upgraders/New Property Buyers – Bridging Loans

Financing the move from one property to another can be quite stressful, especially if you are yet to sell your home – a bridging loan can help free up the funds that are tied up in your current property to purchase the next one. With a bridging loan, your lender will use both your current and new property as security and lend you enough to buy your new home.

While you are waiting for the sale and purchase process to be completed on both your current and new property, you make interest only repayments on the loan, or maybe even no repayments at all (referred to as capitalising the interest). Once you have sold your old home, the proceeds go towards paying off your bridging loan. The amount left over (known as the end debt) is then transferred to a standard home loan, becoming the home loan on your new property.
