Choosing Vendor Finance: QLD Residents’ Answer To Home Ownership?

Home ownership is one of the greatest, and perhaps for many Australians, the most challenging goal to achieve as well. Owning property is the best way to invest in the future of your finances; you can sell the property for a considerable profit, leave it as inheritance for your family, or rent it out for a stable income.

Yet even with financial assistance from the government, like Queensland’s (QLD) $15,000 first home buyer construction grant, there’s still a pretty good chance you might not be able to buy your dream home in the time you’ve hoped. There are multiple hurdles to overcome, not the least of which is a lack of funding. Can choosing the vendor finance QLD offers finally lead to home ownership for you?

The Barriers
Unless you’ve already got a considerable sum to pay for a down payment on a home and the subsequent monthly payments, you’ll have to borrow what you need from a bank or any lending institution. The process could be both stressful and disappointing because applications require a ton of paperwork and not all mortgage loans are granted.

The fate of your bank loan may even be jeopardised if your credit isn’t exactly ideal for creditors. When your credit history is sketchy, at best, it’ll be some time before you even begin to qualify for a bank loan, which puts your dream of home ownership in the back burner. With vendor finance (also known as owner finance or seller finance), you save yourself the trouble and disappointment of rejected bank loans, and you inch just a little bit closer to finally owning property.

The Keys to Home Ownership
Vendor finance strategies include rent to buy homes, which allows you to either buy the house at a pre-agreed price or to walk away. Rent to buy or rent to own properties are perfect for experiencing the neighbourhood and sort of “trying out” the home for a period of time. If you feel it’s the home for you, then you can proceed with the purchase option; otherwise, you move on to another property.

When you choose vendor financing, you don’t need to come up with paperwork required by all banks. There will, of course, be some qualifications as deemed necessary by the seller, but these are minimal in comparison to traditional bank applications. For instance, sellers of vendor finance homes will only need to see proof of income, that you can make the monthly payments, and that you’re able to meet the upfront deposit, which is generally lower than what banks demand.

Even with a less-than-perfect credit score and a lack of funding on down payment, you can own a home through vendor finance. People have used this option for decades in Australia because it benefits both the buyer and the seller. The buyer only pays for a low deposit and the seller has a chance to finally make a sale even in a slow moving property market. When you’re ready to own a property, look into vendor finance — and take that first step towards home ownership today.
