Getting a home loan – what you need to know

IF you’re in the market to purchase a property there are several steps required to secure a home loan. BankSA general manager of retail banking and home lending Maria-Ann Camilleri said you should first calculate how much you think you will need and how much you will actually be able to borrow. “Generally, we lend up to 95 per cent of your purchase price, including mortgage insurance,” she said. “So, if you’re looking to buy a $300,000 home, you’ll need $15,000 in savings to put towards a deposit. “An easy way to work out your exact borrowing power is by speaking to your bank or by using one of the many online calculators available that will quickly estimate how much you can borrow, what deposit you will need, and what your repayments will be.” Mrs Camilleri said, when doing your sums, make sure to factor in how much stamp duty you will need to pay and any other fees such as conveyancing charges and mortgage insurance. “On the other hand, if you’re a first home buyer, be sure to factor in any housing grants you may be entitled to from the state government to help offset your costs,” she said. When you apply for a home loan you will need to provide documentation including proof of income, such as recent pay slips, a summary of your monthly expenses and evidence of your savings. “Once you have completed your home loan application your lender will then consider and verify your application before hopefully approving so you can proceed with your property plans,” Mrs Camilleri said.



KADINA’s Deb Ross has proven the dream of owning your own home is not out of reach for everyday Australians. The single mother of three had been renting for more than 20 years and never thought she would be able to purchase a home. About five years ago she decided to make sacrifices and start saving to ensure she had something to leave her children. “I never thought I would have the option to buy a home and it took a lot of saving, hard work, persistence and a lot of sacrifices,” she said. “It’s hard to save money, especially when you have children, which is why it took so long but I managed to save enough in five years. “It was a very surreal feeling and I was excited I was actually buying my own home because I thought it was out of reach.” Deb said if she can save enough for a house, anyone can. “I just woke up one morning and said ‘I want to buy my own home, we are going to sacrifice for how long it takes and make the dream a reality’,” she said. “I now have something I can leave my kids, I can call something my own without the risk of having to move because the owner wants to sell.” Loan Market finance broker Mark West, who consults in Kadina, helped Deb make her dream come true. “There are many things people need to be aware of when thinking about applying for a home loan because borrowing money is a big commitment with most home loan terms running for about 30 years,” Mark said. “This means people must show they are able to manage their own finances before even applying for a loan. “Before making a decision on whether to lend you money, lenders will look at some key aspects of your personal and financial situation.”

A PLACE TO CALL HOME... Declan Mazzone, of Kadina, stands out front of his new home which his mother, Deb Ross, purchased after 20 years of renting.

Mark’s advice Managing your finance and personal situation

n Credit history: Does your credit report have any defaults? If it does, you can find it very difficult to obtain finance. Defaults can be as simple as an unpaid phone bill from years ago. People can often be unaware these defaults are on their credit record. n Savings history: Lenders want to know you can save money. If you have a good income but no savings, the banks will want to know why. The amount of savings you require depends on many factors. n Income: Is your income enough to support the loan you are applying for? Keep in mind when lenders assess your capacity to repay a loan they will assess you on an interest rate that is significantly higher than what the interest rate on your loan is. This is to ensure you can still afford the loan if interest rates increase.

n Living arrangements: The structure of your family will determine what minimum living costs the lenders will apply to your scenario. For every additional child, your living costs increase and your borrowing capacity is reduced considerably. n Current liabilities: Lenders will calculate your current debt levels when considering your suitability for a loan. This includes credit cards.


n All lenders are the same: The fact is all lenders are very different. They all have different policies which can often be the difference between getting a loan or not. A good example is casual employment, if you are employed on a casual basis some banks will require you to have been employed for a minimum of six months while others require only three months. n You need 20 per cent deposit: If you are buying a home to live in many lenders will lend up to 95 per cent of

the value of the property. I have even done loans up to 97 per cent with some lenders. This is dependent on approval from lenders mortgage insurers but is more common than not these days. n You can’t buy a property without a deposit: If you have someone (generally a relative) willing to offer part of their property as security you may be able to borrow all of the purchase price plus all of the costs. This is called a security guarantee. n You need a job to get a loan: With Homestart particularly you may qualify for a loan based purely on your pension income. This can include family tax benefit, aged pension or carers pension. n You can get a better rate dealing direct with the bank: This is absolutely incorrect. Brokers have access to exactly the same rates as the individual banks and sometimes discounted rates which are only available through the broker channel.

Expansion marks new era for beachside development A NEW land release at The Dunes Yorke Peninsula has made the 80-hectare Port Hughes development the talk of the Copper Coast — and beyond. Onsite construction concluded in late October, clearing the way for another 40 allotments and uniting both ends of the beachside development via a bitumen-sealed thoroughfare. The Dunes project director Kevin McGuinness said the stage 1C expansion has attracted significant interest from locals and Adelaide-based buyers. “We’d already sold a quarter of the available allotments before sales for the new stage officially opened,” Kevin said. “Pre-release pricing and the buzz of progress at the site certainly piqued the interest of various buyers, including investors, holidaymakers, and retirees.” He said the expansion’s role in connecting both ends of the development to create a cohesive community has also driven greater interest in allotments in other areas of the site. “Overall, we’ve sold about 62 per cent of the available allotments we’ve opened up and that continues to increase from

week to week,” Kevin said. “With a dedicated sales consultant now based on site, we get multiple sales leads and enquiries every week.” Copper Coast local and Ray White agent Seah Williams has picked up The Dunes real estate account, establishing a base to connect with locals and visitors at a rather enviable location, The Deck Bar and Cafe. “People come to The Deck to unwind with friends or experience great golfing, so if they happen to see me and want to find out more about The Dunes, it’s a fairly unintimidating environment for them to come up and have a chat,” Seah said. Sales for stage 1C officially open this week, with an offer to land buyers of a partial refund to put towards their build costs. The land release has also sparked investment in a new video-fed website and marketing campaign using aerial footage and photography that highlights the spectacular imagery of the area. “When you see the views on offer at The Dunes, you realise you don’t need words to explain why you’d want to live here — and that’s the principle behind the new campaign.”


LIFESTYLE... When you see the views on offer, you don’t need words to explain why you would want to live at The Dunes, according to sales agent Seah Williams, who has made The Deck Bar and Cafe her base at The Dunes.

Making Yorke Peninsula home Sonny COOMBS JOURNALIST

WITH average house prices almost half the cost of Adelaide and great lifestyle opportunities, it’s no wonder people are leaving the big smoke for Yorke Peninsula. The Copper Coast has recorded significant population growth during the past five years, having added 1190 people since 2011, according to the latest Census.


“It’s just relaxing here, you can walk in the park, hear all the birds which you don’t get in Adelaide, and we often go on bush walks which we love. “It’s a more social lifestyle and you are far more relaxed here so we haven’t looked back.� Yorke Peninsula Real Estate principal Kym Stanitzki said the peninsula offers a great country lifestyle, particularly for those who enjoy water activities.

The quality of life is just so much better here than it is in the city and we are country people at heart. – Kate Johns, of Kadina

Richard and Kate Johns had been visiting the area for seven years before deciding to permanently make the move to Kadina in February. “We met a lot of people, found them really lovely, we love crabbing, fishing and just the lifestyle in the country,� Mrs Johns said. “The quality of life is just so much better here than it is in the city and we are country people at heart so we are really enjoying it.


“Also, we have better facilities and services than a lot of similar-sized towns in the state on the back of a large number of tourists who visit the region,� Mr Stanitzki said. “In the past the peninsula had significant annual capital growth — from 2000 to 2012 many towns had 12 to 14 per cent annual capital growth.� Mr Stanitzki said there was a significant decline in the number of retirees in

the market when the global financial crisis hit; however, the situation has improved this year. “We believe the peninsula is still an attractive area for retirees and expect the number of retirees to increase again because, in many cases, they can sell their home in Adelaide for significantly more than they will spend purchasing a home here,� he said. “The excess funds may assist to bolster the superannuation balances or buy the new lifestyle toys such as a caravan, boat or fourwheel drive.� Ray White Copper Coast/Ard rossan/Yorke Peninsula principal David Bussenschutt said he is told by people who move to the peninsula it’s like a LOVING LIFE...

Properly managing your property IF you have an investment property or thinking about buying one, it’s important your property is in safe hands and managed properly, according to Ferguson Property Agents founder and principal Justin Ferguson. A great way to keep your property in check and reduce unnecessary stress is to get your own property manager. Key things your property manager should be doing, according to Mr Ferguson: 1. Accurate ongoing condition reports: Continual documentation on the situation of your home will outline if there has been any extra damage over and above normal wear and tear. This will make sure the tenant is responsible for the cost of replacing or repairing such damage, therefore covering yourself. 2. Periodical rental increases: Being an expert in the local market, your property manager should be familiar with how other similar properties are priced and the typical increasing percentages. When the tenants’ lease is due for renewal they should be able to expertly guide you on how much to increase the rent price. 3. Offering the landlord to come to periodic inspections: By attending periodic inspec-

tions, it gives you the opportunity to view your property and see if the tenants are looking after it. This allows you to bring up any concerns or changes that need to be made and to make sure your property manager really is doing their job. 4. Offering updated sales appraisals: Your property is an important asset. That’s why you should be regularly informed about the current market to see how your investment is performing. This can offer distinct advantages including income, capital and growth. 5. Making sure tenants are thoroughly screened: A consistent screening process should include careful credit and criminal background checks. If your property manager isn’t doing this, you can end up in real strife. 6. Continuing to keep the landlord fully informed during the re-rent process: Your property manager should advise you immediately if a tenant gives notice of the intention to leave the property. You need to be informed on all aspects will certify your property has been respected and left in a good condition, ready for the new tenant.

Choosing a local builder gives peace of mind

FRANKEBUILDING is a family-owned residential construction business, based in Kadina. Offering new homes, heritage restorations, additions, and bathroom and kitchen improvements as part of its service, the 29-year-old business comprises family members David Franke and Aaron Franke, and a school-based apprentice. With the motto “Family built constructions for families”, homes are built to the same excellence the Frankes would expect in their own. By contracting frankebuilding for your construction needs, you are tapping into a combined 42 years of experience, giving you a quality finish and peace of mind. David started in the industry as an apprentice at age 15, working for a family building company on southern YP. At the time, apprentices and



tradesman needed to put their hands to most trades, including concrete, brickwork, plastering, carpentry, fibrous plastering, tiling and finishing. Aaron began his apprenticeship in 2009 after completing year 12, so he brings eight years of building experience. He’s studied Certificate IV in Carpentry and Construction, and has had the opportunity to put his hand to a variety of trades. The business’s school-based apprentice has experienced varied trades, from house set out and foundation pour to completed product. Throughout the building process, frankebuilding subcontracts only local trades, believing this gives it and its clients assurance should they ever require further assistance. “Our business plan is to only

build two or three residential homes, along with smaller constructions, per year,” David said. “While build times may be a little longer than other builders, we offset this by aiming for quality workmanship. “Also, by remaining lowvolume builders, you can be certain of having our full attention and comfort in the knowledge you will only deal with one person throughout your construction project. “We believe our costs are competitive compared with project/high volume builders.” David is happy to estimate your building cost, requiring a sketch plan of the project and building square metres only; call him on 0438 867 742. Frankebuilding currently has two turnkey homes for sale, at 24 Hughes Street, Wallaroo, and 54 Thomas Street, Newtown. They are featured on frankebuilding’s Facebook page; call David to arrange an inspection.

Summer gardening tips with Helen Sonny COOMBS JOURNALIST

SUMMER is the most difficult time of year to get your garden looking good; however, there a few things you can do to maximise its potential. Kadina’s Helen and Dean Rodda have been showing their one-acre property garden, which is split into five sections including a dam, for the past decade. Mrs Rodda said there are several things she does in summer to make sure her garden withstands the heat. “When pruning I make sure the ground is wet and then I put on mulch which is a cottage-blend of bark mainly,” she said. “I always put Sudden Impact down before putting mulch on so it works its way into the soil during summer. “What we work the hardest on during summer is to get a decent coating of mulch over the soil. “A lot of people use pea straw but I think that breaks down too quickly and birds cart it off.” Mrs Rodda said it’s difficult keeping your garden nice during summer, with most plants finished blooming at the end of spring “It’s about maintaining the garden, keeping it fresh by topping it up with water,” she said. “I plant petunias around my bushes and things like that in summer for colour, they don’t need a lot of water and they spread beautifully. “If there is anything I have looked after all winter, I will throw a cloth or a white sheet over the top of it if it’s going to be extreme (heat) to keep it from burning.” Watering during the early morning on days of high heat is important. “Usually you can get away with that one watering a week, either morning or late at night, but when it is severe you just have to do it,” she said. “You wouldn’t severely cut anything back too much when you know it’s going to be hot. “If the leaves of a plant have burned off in the middle of summer don’t pull them off because they will drop off when they are ready and might protect others underneath. “You won’t get your garden looking the best during the summer, which is why we always have open gardens during spring.”

Where are the first-time buyers in SA? DESPITE South Australia being the most accessible state for first-home buyers in Australia, only one in 10 properties bought are first-time purchases. A national report from Bankwest states first-time buyers in SA need the lowest deposit of anywhere in the country and correspondingly can save for it in the shortest time. SA first-time buyer couples require just $80,985 to purchase a median-priced house, on average, according to the report. This relatively low amount, compared with other states, means first-home buyers only need to save for 3.8 years on average. The national average is 4.6 years. “The average SA first-time buyers can save for a house in the state in under four years,” Bankwest general manager of personal and small business banking Donna Dalby said. “Despite this, SA has the second lowest proportion of first-time buyers in Australia – just 11.1 per cent in the year to June 2017. “A potential reason for such low firsttime buyer presence in the SA market is the fact people aged 25-34, a prime first-time buyer age bracket, have the second lowest wages nationwide.”

Rental affordability on downward spiral

SUMMER GARDENING... Kadina gardening enthusiast Helen Rodda says there are a few things you can do during summer to keep your garden looking good.

RENTAL affordability continues to decline in South Australia, according to the latest National Rental Affordability Index produced by National Shelter, SGS Economics and Planning and Community Sector Banking. For South Australia’s low-income earners, affordable housing options are few and far between, the index shows. “People living on low incomes in SA have no choice but to live in unaffordable housing and are a growing demographic across the country making it impossible for some people to afford the basic necessities of life. South Australians are really struggling to survive,” Shelter SA executive director Dr Alice Clark said. A lack of mixed density and mixed property types can be a cause of unaffordability in some suburbs but the most expensive feature of these homes is the location and the land, according to the index report.
