A young Mosman Park couple, Alex Stewart and Kerry Fontana, have won $25,000 just for attending an appointment with Australia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie Home Loans.
The happy couple met with Aussie Mortgage Broker Barry Stribling, who has now secured their first home loan to buy a two bedroom, $430,000 townhouse in Murray St, Perth.
On top of winning the national competition, the couple has also scored with the WA Government’s $3,000 First Home Owners Grant and free stamp duty, available for purchases up to $430,000.
Alex said “We are blown away with winning the competition and the prize will be going towards our deposit, which is a huge boost for our finances. We can’t thank Aussie and Barry enough for helping us get into our first property.”
Mr Stribling said “I am delighted for Alex and Kerry as they are a great young couple in their thirties coming into the property market at a good time, when prices have eased and just before the First Home Owners Grant expired.
“They are putting our prize money to good use in building up their deposit and will enjoy the experience of getting off the rental merry-go-round,” he added.
Having been with Aussie for four years, Mr Stribling is helping many young people secure their first property, while also helping borrowers take advantage of the historic low interest rates by refinancing to more cost-effective loans.
“We are in a red hot mortgage market and lenders are fighting for business, so there’s little reason why anyone with a standard loan scenario should be paying a mortgage that has an interest rate starting with a five, or even now in the high fours,” Mr Stribling concluded.
