What will a typical mortgage cost in Cairns?

The median house price in Cairns is $420,000. If you were looking to take out a home loan to help you purchase a house at this price, a 20% deposit would be $84,000, and you would have to borrow $336,000 to finance your purchase.

How is a mortgage broker paid?

Most mortgage brokers will generally help you find a home loan at no charge. Instead of requesting payment from you, they usually make money by receiving a commission from a lender. The commission usually comprises two parts: an upfront commission when the loan is taken out, and a recurring or trailing commission based on the outstanding loan amount each year.

How does a mortgage broker work?

A mortgage broker’s job is to match borrowers up with a home loan that meets all their needs. Acting as a go-between, a broker will assess your financial situation and borrowing needs to determine exactly what you need in a home loan. Then, using an aggregator to access a range of lenders, a broker will recommend suitable mortgage products from those lenders and then negotiate on your behalf to get a loan with a competitive rate and the features you want.
