Buying Your First Home

Buying your first home is an exciting yet nervous time. You’re making a huge life commitment so it’s essential that you receive the right advice. We can’t help you choose your curtains, but we can find you the best deal on your home loan.

Which Lender Should I Choose?

One of the biggest mistakes Kiwis make when buying their first home is choosing a provider on familiarity and not shopping around for the best deal on their mortgage. Your bank may be great for your holiday savings, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they can save you tens of thousands on your mortgage.

Haven works with New Zealand’s major lending institutions to offer a range of lending options. Essentially, we do all the shopping around for you and tailor our recommendations to what is best for you, not the banks. We don’t have an exclusive product to sell, that’s why our advice is impartial and our options flexible.

Our great relationships with the lending institutions mean we can often secure home loans that may be rejected on an independent application.

We don’t expect you to understand financial jargon – which is why we won’t use it.
