We New Zealanders are proud of our ability to get things done ourselves.

Whether it’s fixing a chicken coop, mending a fence, or sorting out mortgage paperwork, there’s an admirable DIY streak that makes us reluctant to ask for outside help.

Sometimes, however, this can come back to bite us. For something like a fence, there’s only so much that can go wrong. But when it comes to something as complex as finding the right mortgage, negotiating the best possible terms, and working out how to repay it as quickly and painlessly as possible, there’s a huge difference between “getting it done” and “getting it done well”.

You don’t need a mortgage advisor to guide you through the basic process of getting a home loan. An advisor’s main purpose is to help you make fully informed strategic decisions about something that’ll affect you for decades to come. They also ensure that you avoid the many pitfalls that lie in wait for non-experts and help you seize any opportunities to alleviate the burden of your mortgage.

The best way to get a sense of how an advisor can help is to have an initial consultation, where you can ask them any questions you might have. To arrange a free chat with someone from the friendly One50 team, contact us today!
