Happy Holidays from All of Us!
December has arrived, and the Christmas holidays are now on the radar. With the warmer days, the Advanced Mortgage Solutions team are looking forward to spending time with our families and loved ones over the Christmas break. Our office will be closed from the 22nd December to the 8th January and we are looking forward to helping our clients achieve their property dreams in 2018.

Loan to Value Ratio Restrictions Are Easing
The Reserve Bank has announced an easing of the loan to value ratios from January 2018. Currently banks are only able to have 10% of their lending allocated to buyers with less than a 20% deposit. This is being raised to 15% for first home buyers who have less than a 20% deposit.
That is great news for first home buyers and if you’re one, you need to contact us today! We’ll work with you to find the right loan to suit your circumstances and help you get the home of your dreams. Head to our website now for more information on how we can help you into your first home.
From all of us here at Advanced Mortgage Solutions, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

After calling another high profile mortgage company and getting no response, I found Advanced Mortgage Solutions via Google, from the first phone contact they were on the job and able to meet me on the same day and kept me informed through the process until settlement.Philip and Joanne Rushton - 21 January 2015 - 21 January 2015
