    Does anyone know if you can take out a loan for stamp duty with the home loan?

    In qld, if you are a first home buyer, and you are going to use your home as your main residence, you don't have to pay stamp duty. I don't know about other states.

    We borrow 95% + lenders mortgage insurance. Might seem like a lot butnits better thab renting..
    We went through a mortgage broker. And ended uo getting our home loan through ing direct. Very cheap!

    We used a broker. DH has had a very colourful financial history and banks weren't as flexible as a broker.
    We didn't/haven't saved anything but were "gifted" 20% of the purchase price.
    We are currently looking and actually feeling really disillusioned in our area. We are thinking of continuing renting and buying an investment property.

    Buying our first home 7 years ago I found really exciting till I saw how little our budget would afford!! Although I'm thankful we did it now my best advice...
    Use a broker and compare to direct bank offers
    Find an area you love, a house that's tolerable - you can always improve later
    Paying off as much as you can in the first 5 yrs is a really effective investment strategy as your primary property is not a taxable investment

    We just purchused our first home. We had 45k deposit and didnt use the fhog up front (applied after). Our lovely lender didnt explain the difference of xyz of paying a bit more deposit to avoid lmi!! When we had the money!!!!!

    Our mortgage is $187,000. $220 a week. I recommend seeing various places as pp said goto your bank if you have been with them for years too

    We have a run down house had to spend about 10k on it but now its livable and lovely!
