How Daniel and Lisa bought their first home with Lendi

Meet first time buyers, Daniel and Lisa.

Daniel and Lisa live in the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. They were renting when they decided to buy their first property.

Daniel had heard about Lendi when he went online in search of the lowest rate he and Lisa could qualify for to buy their first house together. He then contacted three local banks in the area to compare their offers.

Did you get a good deal?

“My regular bank, that I bank with everyday, couldn’t match what Lendi wanted to give us. The rate I got with Lendi was 1% better than I could get anywhere else,” says Daniel. “With the money I saved, I am able to pay my home loan off quicker.”

[Our Home Loan Specialists] were really helpful and we could contact them any time,” says Lisa. “They got back to us really quickly with everything we needed. Anything we needed help with, they sorted it out”.

How long did the process take?

“From initial contact to final approval I would say it would have been about a month” Daniel says. Daniel and Lisa were able to buy a house in a “beautiful community” close to beaches, shops and a golf course.

How does it feel to finally own a home?

“It feels amazing,” says Lisa. “I’m finally able to do whatever I want. I don’t have to pay rent. We’re kind of living the Australian dream now. We have our own house. Something we can call ours.”
