Our clients share their experiences of transformation and growth.

Our journey with ALIC started 5 to 6 years ago when we purchased land and subsequently built our first home. Since then, we have continued our association with them, and it has proven to be a decision we do not regret. Their team not only provided financial guidance but also helped us build our wealth through a well-thought-out investment portfolio.

There are lenders, banks and brokers, and then there is ALIC. Kevin Agent and his team are amazing in finding solutions for your business or personal needs. They helped me establish my business, sorted out my home loan and savings and helped me buy my new home without any stress or worry and financially my family has never been better.

Look no further than the Australian Lending & Investments Centre. No one better and highly recommended.

Natasha has been an exceptional mortgage broker for us for the last decade. We have come to rely on her expertise implicitly and trust her completely. She has impressive efficiency. She always gives personalised guidance that suits our circumstances (which are complex), and she is honest when she thinks something is not a good idea. Lastly, she is so friendly and such a great communicator that every interaction is easy and enjoyable.

We've recommended Tash to all of our friends who have sought mortgages and they would all write something similar. Highly recommend.

Guarantor Home Loans

Every year, residential properties in Australia increase in value by a median of 16.48%. 

On a $600,000 home, that’s an annual increase of $98,880 – enough for a deposit on an investment property. 

Using a guarantor to take out a home loan can help you get into the market faster, minimising lost opportunity costs and helping you build your property portfolio. 

And, with LVRs of up to 105% available, you might not even need a deposit to start borrowing.

Questions About Home Loans

Is it easier to get a mortgage through a mortgage broker?

Yes, getting a loan for a residential property is generally much easier if you go through a mortgage broker. 

A good broker will act as a guide to the complex world of property financing – they’ll help you understand the loan process and what lenders look for, they’ll operate in your best interests, and, most importantly, they’ll help broker a loan designed for your specific situation. 

Mortgage brokers maintain a network of lenders that they can easily reach out to, which means they may be able to help you get a mortgage even if you’ve been rejected when you’ve applied directly to banks.  They’ll be able to represent you in the best possible light, making it more likely that you can get a loan with favourable repayment conditions and interest rates. 

Do mortgage brokers give loans?

A mortgage broker doesn’t normally give loansThey act as a liaison between you (the borrower) and the lender, who can be a bank or a non-bank financer. 

Are mortgage brokers better than banks?

Most banks let you borrow directly from them, but it often makes more sense to go through a mortgage broker.  Banks are lenders, which means they typically have set home loan rates.  These rates aren’t ideal for everyone, and you may benefit from the tailored rates that a mortgage broker can facilitate. 

Banks may also not want to lend to you outright, especially if you already have a number of mortgages.  A mortgage broker can negotiate with the bank to get you a loan; if they’re unable to get a loan from a particular bank, they can help you find another lender from their network of banks and non-bank financers. 

How do mortgage brokers get paid?

Most mortgage brokers get paid by commission from lenders, although some charge the client – you – a service fee instead. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages. 

Service fees can easily run into tens of thousands of dollars, especially if your broker works with you to identify the right type of loan for your financial objectives. That can add a large upfront cost that isn’t affordable for many Australians and means there’s no financial incentive for your broker to secure you a loan quickly. The benefit of paying your broker directly is that they’re not financially associated with lenders. 

Brokers who get paid by commission, on the other hand, are completely free for you to use. They can work with you to find the right loan (not just the first one you can afford), develop long-term borrowing strategies, and resolve any problems free of charge. Because they get paid once a loan is settled, they’re incentivised to get you a loan quickly. The disadvantage is that unethical commission-paid brokers may refer you to certain lenders who may pay higher commissions, rather than the lender that’s the best fit for you. 

To find an ethical broker, look for a brokerage like ALIC that has: 

  • a diverse lending panel with 15 or more lenders 
  • a proven record of happy clients 
  • a long-term, outcome-focused approach to lending 
  • no financial relationships with buyer’s advocates, real estate agents, or other property professionals. 

What’s the best bank to get a home loan from?

There is no ‘best bank’ to borrow from. Finding the right lender depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals.  

Working with a broker means you’ll have an accredited professional helping source different mortgage options from both bank and non-bank lenders – and, just as importantly, they’ll be able to model exactly how each loan could affect your financial future. Once you understand the possible options and their long-term implications, you can make an informed decision about which loan is right for you.
