Expert mortgage advice to help First Home Buyers find their way home

Because it’s not just as simple as finding the lowest interest rate – it’s the type of mortgage that really matters

Buying your first home is meant to be more enjoyable than daunting. It’s understandable, though, why so many first home buyers experience overwhelm.

There are more home loan options out there than you can count. As a first-time home buyer, where do you even start with comparing them? Are you better off with a fixed, standard, or variable rate? And what do those terms mean, anyway?

With Educated Finance, you don’t have to figure it all out for yourself. We help you at every stage of the journey, from understanding how much you can borrow through to finding a conveyancer you can rely on. And with access to over 30 lenders, you can be confident we’ll secure the best home loan product for your needs.

Get the right first home loan – one that works for you today and tomorrow

Home loans can be like houses – buyer beware.

See a super-low interest rate advertised? It may just come with higher fees and penalties, expensive renewal costs, or even repayment restrictions that are neatly woven into the fine print and can cost you more over the life of your loan.

That’s the beauty of securing your first home loan with Educated; we read the fine print, so you don’t have to.

We’re also wholly independent, working with a range of lenders instead of being restricted to a single brand.

So, if you’re buying your first home, don’t just accept any home loan – get one that works for you today while also setting you up for tomorrow.

It’s just the Educated way.

Home loan

We get to know you – your circumstances, needs and goals – before searching the market for the loans best suited to you and obtaining lender pre-approval (estimates of how much you could borrow from potential lenders)

Property valuation and loan approval

Found your dream home? After negotiating the very best product, we liaise with the lender to undertake a property valuation. If they’re happy with the property valuation and the amount you are borrowing, we obtain unconditional loan approval.


Are you all packed? After you’ve signed the loan contracts, we’ll work with your lender and solicitor or conveyancer to make payment and transfer property ownership to you.

All that’s left to do is… unpack!
