FINANCE

DO YOU NEED A PRE-APPROVAL?

You don’t need to find your new home before you apply for a loan. In fact, getting preapproval before you find your home delivers a number of excellent benefits. Some of these benefits include: • You’ll know your borrowing capacity (based on a real credit assessment). • You’ll know what the repayments look like, your deposit requirements and the costs involved. • You’ll know the Lenders Terms & Conditions upfront. • You’ll have a much better idea about what properties to look at and within what price range (rather than wasting time looking in unrealistic price ranges). • You’ll be much better placed to meet finance clause timeframes. • Most pre-approvals will last between three and six months (providing your circumstances don’t change). When you attain a pre-approved loan, there are fewer chances of experiencing hiccups with the buying/selling process. And knowing you can move quickly to take the property off the market may even give you better negotiating powers.

HAIR

HAPPY NEW HAIR!

With the new season now here, it’s an obvious chance for me to share with you news about the Pro Fiber range from L’oreal Professionnel. This treatment and haircare range is a real game changer; it’s an in-salon treatment that will literally roll back any effects of over processed or coloured hair, and reverse the signs of damage, dehydration or weakness. Aptyl 100 is the patented hero in this range, seeking out imperfections and transforming your hair into optimal condition. It all begins with the in-salon treatment, a quick application that only takes FIVE minutes and has a price tag of only $50. This instantly leaves hair feeling smooth and slim, while also giving it a superb shine. Stocking up at home with a Pro Fiber shampoo conditioner and a pack of Recharge phials will sustain the delivered benefits for up to six weeks. And there’s great news for the guys, too — American Crew’s 3 in 1 shampoo, conditioner and shower gel is now available in a Tea Tree fragrance, which is fresh and cool. Come and try it in the salon! Speaking of fragrance, have you tried the American Crew fragrance, Nine? It’s called Nine because 9 out of 10 women love it — and guess what? It’s only $50!
